Tom Watson’s Final Round

IMG_1643Tom Watson played his final round at The Open Championship on Friday. He finished as darkness covered St. Andrews. As he reached the Swilcan Bridge, I noticed that every single person reached for a camera of some kind. I fumbled for my phone, pointed in Watson’s general direction. This is what I got.

As you can see, it’s out of focus and blurry and looks more like a painting than a picture. I think that’s why I like it. I think I’m going to get it blown up and framed. First photo I’ve ever felt that way about.

Here’s what I wrote about Watson’s final round.

And, what the heck, here’s the book I wrote about Watson and his rivalry with Jack Nicklaus.

    Heck, you could probably sell framed copies of that photo. Sign me up. Quite a happy accident.

    Can you and MR. Watson sign a framed copy of that and send it to me? Thanks. Email me for my postal address.
