3rd Round 2009 Open Championship Wrap Up

Tom Watson finds himself holding the 54 hole lead at the 2009 Open Championship. Sunday is shaping up to be a very exciting final round at Turnberry. At the start of this tournament all the buzz was about Tiger Woods and his bid for a 15th major championship. But after Woods failed to make the halfway cut, all eyes turned to Hall of famer Tom Watson and his amazing run at his 9th Major.

At 59 years old he could become the oldest player to win a major since World War II. Defending champion Padrig Harrington all but ensured that he would not repeat after shooting a 3rd round 6-over 76.

Will Watson continue his stellar play and earn a miracle win? Or will someone else step up and claim this 9th major championship?
