Hilary Watson, wife of Tom Watson, must be busting with pride today, as her husband takes the lead heading into the final round Sunday of the British Open at Turnberry.
Hilary Watson is in Scotland, of course, (you can see a picture of her here), and looking on as her golfing husband legend once again tops the leaderboard with a one stroke lead over Mathew Goggin and Ross Fisher after the third round of the 2009 British Open at Turnberry. He said:
“I ended on a real good note again. When you have that feel around the greens, that keeps you going.”
Hilary spoke to a reporter regarding the week that Tom has had at Turnberry:
“It’s just almost surreal, it’s so exciting. We just can’t believe it. He was really relaxed this morning; it didn’t seem to bother him that he was leading. I think even he felt it was a surreal experience.”
