Cink Steals Win from Watson at British

TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) - Tom Watson squandered a chance to
become golf's oldest major champion. The 59-year-old missed an
8-foot putt on the 72nd hole of the British Open, then lost a playoff to Georgia Tech alum Stewart Cink.

Cink was born in Huntsville, Ala. and now lives in the Atlanta area.

Cink, who made a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation, took advantage of Watson's missed opportunity and won a four-hole playoff by six shots.

Cink, who was never atop the leaderboard all week until Watson missed his putt, was flawless in the playoff and finished off with two birdies.
