Bjorn Again at the 2011 Open Championship

Paul Childs/Zuma Press

The big story at the 104th Open Championship was all about redemption for Denmark's Thomas Bjorn. Eight years ago Bjon had suffered a catastrophic collapase on the 16th hole at Royal St. Georges that gave American Ben Curtis his first and only Major Win. Today Thomas Bjorn got some payback and now finds himself atop the leaderboard at the 2011 Open Championship.

Bjorn's Father died after along illness eight weeks ago and an emotional Bjorn broke down in the press cdenter after his round and it was clearly visible that his father dseath is still fresh on his mind.

Maybe this year Bjorn will overcome the heartbreak he suffered in 2003 and raise the Calret Jug as the 104th Open Champion.
