Watson makes cut at Open at age of 64

HOYLAKE, England (AP) - The ovations from the packed galleries remain as warm as ever for Tom Watson at the British Open. His scoring continues to be just as impressive, too.

The 64-year-old Watson extended his record of being the oldest man to make the cut at the game's oldest major when he shot a 1-over 73 on Friday. That gave him at 2-over 146.

The five-time British Open winner says ''let's see what happens on the weekend. See if the old guy can maybe get it rolling a little bit.''

Playing a brand of ''old man's golf,'' as he put it, Watson has outlasted Masters champion Bubba Watson as well as Webb Simpson and Patrick Reed - two guys looking to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team captained by Watson.
