Ben Curtis can play the British Open every year until he's 65.

He did it! He did it!

He won a tournament on the Hooters Tour last year, so of course we should have seen this coming. You know. Winning the British Open is the next natural step.

Holy Mother of God.

And what a beautiful tournament--Tom Watson and Greg Norman briefly regaining their glory years. Thomas Bjorn, after an unfathomable choke on the 16th, kneeling to explain to his daughter Philippa that daddy didn't win after all. Tiger flaying himself in the post-tournament interview, "I'm pissed off at myself." A final round of almost unbearable tension, an incredible par on 18 by a 26-year-old rookie playing his first major. One of the announcers muttering, "Make four, son. Make four." Damned if he didn't.
