Tom Watson conjures up some more British Open magic, making a hole-in-one at No. 6
SANDWICH, England (AP) ' Tom Watson has aced the 178-yard sixth hole in the British Open, his 4-iron shot bouncing once on the green and dropping into the cup in the second round Friday.
The 61-year-old Watson, a five-time British Open winner, threw both arms in the air, high-fived playing partner Henrik Stenson, shook hands with amateur Tom Lewis and took a bow for the cheering crowd.
As he walked toward the green, Watson said: "Wish I could have seen it go in."
Dustin Johnson aced the 16th during the opening round, the first hole-in-one at the Open since 2009.
