Willie Wood struggled for so long that when he finally notched that breakthrough victory he knew exactly where to celebrate. No need for anything lavish.
The coolest thing at the U.S. Senior Open hasn't been the air conditioning in the clubhouse or the ice in the drinks at the corporate tents.
OAKMONT, Pa. -- Something's missing from this U.S. Open, something that at least partially makes up for the barrage of bogeys we — and the poor players — are about to be subjected to: a sentimental favorite on the American side. By that I mean an accomplished veteran golfer who has yet to win a major championship, a guy who everybody agrees is "owed one."
"It's been really almost more scary than frustrating because I honestly thought I was never going to stick a tee in the ground again," said Sindelar, who's made just five starts this year and has a scoring average of 73.27.
"I'm not a golfer yet, but I have finished three tournaments in a row, which thrills me to death," he said. "I'm not sure what kind of competitive ability I'll have this week. I'm certainly not at the top of my game."
