What is a Tom Watson sandwich? It's a 72 that was far more impressive at 61 years of age, on Saturday at Royal St. George's. To make the situation even more incredible, Mr. Watson played during some of very difficult weather conditions.

Tom Watson would have liked the climatic conditions at Royal St. George's on Saturday during the third round of the Open Championship be better, but Watson did not complain and walked away to score his 2 over par score the best of the day when he finished and well into the afternoon.

At the time he was playing, the average score for the day in Sandwich, England was over 77.
