Stewart Cink of the US celebrates by kissing the golf ball during the 72nd hole of regulation play on the 18th green in the final round of the 138th British Open golf championship in Turnberry, Scotland, on July 19, 2009. Stewart Cink was aware he had spoiled the party at the British Open on July 19 but that did nothing to take away from his sense of achievement. The 36-year-old from Alabama, got the better of a weary Tom Watson in a four-hole British Open play-off to claim his debut major win on a day of high drama at Turnberry, denying his 59-year-old compatriot the chance to become the oldest major winner in history.
