The Most Amazing Golf Achievement of the Year

In America, we are in the middle of golf's "silly season". Except for Q-School, there's not a whole lot at stake for professionals from November through the beginning of January. However, the European and Asian Tours are in full swing, and what I am declaring the most incredible achievement of the year took place this weekend at the European Tour's Michael Hill New Zealand Open.

Bob Charles, winner of the 1963 Open Championship, made the cut and finished T-23. The New Zealander is 71 YEARS OLD! He's the oldest person to make the cut on the European Tour by seven years. Think about it -- he's fifty years older than some of the other playing competitors. When I read that he had made the cut, I did a double-take, and I naturally expected him to mail it in after making the weekend. Yet, he continued his youthful play by shooting 71 and 70 in the final two rounds. Take that, young guns!
