The official film of the 2009 Open Golf Championship on DVD, which was held at Turnberry and won by Stewart Cink, who defeated Tom Watson after a 4-hole play off. It would probably have been the greatest sporting achievement ever.
When Tom Watson walked up to the final hole at Turnberry needing par for victory, the world held its breath while it waited for a new hero. But, the ball slipped past the hole when Watson wavered over his 10-foot victory putt and Stewart Cink took victory after a four hole play-off. Our hopes of immortality were denied and Cink became the Champion Golfer while Watson became a champion man.
So many men led the Open on the final day making the 2009 tournament one of the most memorable ever. At various points in the afternoon three different Englishmen had led, with Ross Fisher keeping his mind on his golf and his pregnant wife, while Lee Westwood was reminded how brutal and unforgiving the Scottish links course could be and Chris Wood looking like a future winner.
In the end, Cink won his first ever Open but crushed the dreams of a 59 year old legend and may just have become the biggest villain in the history of the tournament! That is why we love sport and what makes this DVD compelling viewing.
DVD Extras include: Extended highlights of the 2009 Amateur Championship and a feature on the 2009 Senior Championship.
