Nicklaus & Watson to duel at Turnberry again

The Senior British Open returns to Scotland next month after a 13-year absence, and the participation of Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson is certain to revive memories of the famous ‘duel in the sun’ when the two men went head to head at Turnberry in the 1977 Open Championship.

Both players, who have confirmed their participation next month, were tied after three rounds at ten under par, nine shots clear of the field. The round reached a dramatic climax at the 18th, Watson holing an eight-foot putt to win the title by a single shot.

The Open is being staged at Turnberry’s Ailsa Course between 24 and 27 July, with pre-qualification rounds taking place earlier in the week at Kilmarnock and Turnberry’s Kintyre Course. In total, 144 senior professionals will be vying for a prize fund worth £1million.

Joining Nicklaus and Watson is a host of legends including Tom Kite, Gary Player, Craig Stadler, Fuzzy Zoeller and Roger Davis.
