Watson oldie, but still goodie

Tom Watson is one of four Champions Tour members in the field this week -- Fred Funk (4 over through two rounds), Tom Lehman (8 over) and David Frost  (3 over; through eight holes today) are the others -- and it looks like he’ll be one of two who will make the cut, so long as it stays at 7 over.

If Watson makes the cut this week, he’ll be the second-oldest to do so at the U.S. Open. Sam Snead was 61 when he finished T29 in 1973. Prior to this week, here’s a look at the oldest players to make the cut at the U.S. Open:

Player Age Result
Sam Snead 61 T29 in 1973
Jack Nicklaus 58 T43 in 1998
Sam Snead 57 T38 in 1969
Dutch Harrison 57 T16 in 1967
Jack Nicklaus 57 T52 in 1997
