Tom Watson shook off the ghosts of Whistling Straits with a one-stroke victory in The Senior British Open. Unlike the USGA Senior Open, where a tenth-hole, double bogey began his demise, Watson rebounded with an 11th-hole birdie to right the ship. Even a 72nd-hole double bogey on the heels of a 71st-hole Ginn birdie could not close the four-stroke differential and force a playoff. Ginn, in fact, handed the tournament to Watson by running a five-bogey streak from holes 64 to 68. In other words, Watson gagged again, but survived, thanks to Ginn! Note to Sergio: build a bigger lead next time and find a bigger patsy to challenge you.
