Rank 'Em: Feats of Sporting Old Age

Where does Watson's feat rank?
Tom Watson fell short in a playoff, but did he pull off one of the all-time feats of sporting old age?
When Watson won his first major at the Open Championship in 1975, Tiger Woods had yet to enter the world. With Woods surprisingly out of the picture again this weekend at the Open Championship at Turnberry in Scotland, Watson again had the golfing spotlight all to himself.
At 59, Watson finished second but nearly bettered by more than a decade the standing record for the oldest major champion. How does it stand up against winning the Daytona 500 at 50 or becoming heavyweight champion at 45? Rank 10 of the all-time best age-defying feats.
