Stewart sinks Watson but we finally have a winner

Stewart Cink is golf's 138th Open Champion beating veteran Tom Watson in a four-hole play-off at Turnberry.

It looked like the extra holes were just too much for the five-time Open champion on the eve of his 60th birthday. His consistent play that we have seen all week deserting him late on.

Watson was 500/1 on Thursday morning as he struck his first tee-shot of the tournament and he was never taken too seriously at five-under after the first round as he was still priced 125/1.

In fact, at that stage on Thursday evening, Stewart Cink was three shots behind Watson but priced at 33/1. Of course, maybe now we can see why.

Regardless, there's only one winner we're concerned about here at William Hill News: who won the Open Championship Final Round free-to-enter competition?

Well, it came down to four of you that correctly predicted the six 2-balls we selected for you so we had a tie-break on our hands.

The tie-break question was "how many birdies or better would be shot on the last day at Turnberry?"

According to pga.com, there were 10 eagles on Sunday which eliminated one guess of "4" and pretty much put "17" out of the running.

And then there were two...167 and 190.

Exactly 200 birdies mean the tie-break answer is 210 making the account holder who went 190 the closest - he's won a £40 free bet and has been notified by email.
