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:
|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|
