Cink, Watson play practice round
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Stewart Cink and Tom Watson have played a practice round together, a year after Cink beat the five-time British Open champion at Turnberry.
Watson's bid at 59 to become the oldest major champion was the feel-good story of the British Open last year until he missed an 8-foot putt for par on the final hole of regulation. Cink then pulled away from Watson in the four-hole playoff to win his first major title.
With the two forever linked, Watson suggested at the Masters that they play a practice round together at St. Andrews. Cink said he was all for it, and they teed off Tuesday morning with Matt Kuchar and Cameron Percy.
