2009 British Open Results
Stewart Cink is the new Open champion, snatching the title from the hands of Tom Watson in a four-hole play off after they tied on a two-under-par total of 278. Watson, who had turned the clock back all week, ran out of time in his bid to win his sixth Open over the same course where he won his second in 1977. The dream ended in anti-climatic fashion as the 59-year-old five-time champion wearied over the extra holes and destroyed his chances when he took two shots to force himself clear of the thick rough to the left of the 17th fairway. As they walked off that green he trailed 36-year-old Cink by four shots. The final hole was a formality. Watson blocked his tee shot into the crowd and was in rough short of the green in two. Cink hit two perfect shots to less then three feet and tapped in the winning putt. Watson, sadly, trailed by six shots.

2007 British Open Results
CARNOUSTIE, Scotland., July 22 - No two ways about it, just about every British Open played at Carnoustie has seen an unbelievable finish. Maybe it's because 16, 17 and 18 could be the toughest finish in golf, the next time the British Open rolls around they should think about giving out barf bags on the 16th tee. The tradition started in 1931 when Agentinian Jose Jurado was cruising along with over 10,000 people and the Prince of Wales watching. As he was standing on the 17th tee, he needed a par-par finish to win. Unfortunely he sent his teeshot into the burn and took six on the hole, followed by a par 5 on the finishing hole to finish one back. In 1975 we had the other end of the spectrum when Tom Watson made a birdie three on the hole just to get himself into a playoff which he beat poor old Jack Newton the next day. Of course everyone in golf with the exception of maybe Boo Weekly knows what happened to Jean Van de Velde in 1999 when he made a triple bogey seven at 18 and lost the playoff.
2007 was a lot of the same. The 18th played to a scoring average of 4.611, the hardest hole of the week and again it played a big part of the drama. It all began with Anders Romero, a young Agentinian who started his implosion on the 17th hole when he got greedy from the rough and hit a terrible shot that went out of bounds and he made double bogey. He then stepped on to the 18th tee and proceeded to make bogey. That three over finish made him the first casualty of the 2007 British Open. The next was Padraig Harrington. He was rolling along in fine fashion at 9 under par and there was not two ways about it, make a par and let the celebration begin. But after his drive caught the burn right, he was very stupid and hit it into the burn again in front of the green and made a gallant up and down for double that basically should of lost the tournament for him. But you had Sergio Garcia left, now if you want to bet your life savings that this charismatic Spaniard wouldn't make par you would be a big winner.
After a good drive, Garcia couldn't get a three-iron on the green and then couldn't get up and down from a greenside bunker to complete Carnoustie's wild finish. In the playoff, Harrington had a two shot lead going into the 18th hole and he played it like a par 5, which it use to be, and made his five to bring the Claret Jug back to Ireland for only the second time and the first in 60 years. Unfortunely history may remember the 2007 British Open more for the implosion of Sergio Garcia, who again should of won a major and just didn't have the game and maturity to do it. Of course it's hard to win leading after every round, still you have to wonder how Tiger Woods would of handled a three shot lead with 18 holes left. As for Harrington, he finally won his first major championship in a manner that I thought he would win it, backing into it.
