Watson finishes with birdie

The horn has just sounded to signal the end of play on Friday.

Ten groups will return on Saturday morning at 6:30 to complete their rounds. Tiger Woods won’t be among them – he was on the 18th green when the horn blew and narrowly missed his eagle putt.

Tom Watson, meanwhile, had just hit his tee shot on the 18th hole. The 60-year-old stopped as he reached the Swilcan Bridge and kissed the weathered old stones, then walked halfway across and stopped for the photo op like all the great players before him.

The crowds cheered as Watson walked up the fairway to his drive. He nearly holed his chip for eagle but nonetheless went out in style with the tap-in birdie. – Helen Ross
