Watson's ace

Five-times champion Tom Watson (61) stirred the biggest roar at the Open, when, with one majestic swing of his four-iron at the sixth, he made his first hole-in-one in 34 appearances at golf's oldest Major and the 15th of his life.

Watson's ball hopped once and then went into the cup at the 169-yards par-three, which Dustin Johnson aced on Thursday. But, the oldest man to hole-in-one at the Open? Gene Sarazen was 71 when he aced the Postage Stamp at Troon in 1973.
