    AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, Steve Stricker won the U.S. Senior Open in record-setting fashion this past weekend in South Bend, Indiana. Good for Steve.

    But I wanted to mention Tom Watson.

    I continue to marvel at Watson's play as he nears 70. It was a decade ago Watson nearly won the British Open at age 59.

    From the USGA's championship notes:
    Tom Watson, the 1982 U.S. Open champion who made it a record 17-for-17 in cuts made in the U.S. Senior Open this week, matched or bettered his age (69) for the third time in four rounds. Watson carded a 2-under 68 for a 72-hole total of 278.
    "At this point in my career, I don't know when I'm going to stop playing," said Watson about if he'll play in the 2020 U.S. Senior Open. "But there will be a time when I stop playing, and I can't determine that right now." ​
    Watson is a poster boy for longevity in major championship golf.
