Tom Watson had yet another Open memory to savour today after firing a hole-in-one during his second round at Royal St George's.
Just two years after having a putt to win a record-equalling sixth Open title at Turnberry and become the oldest major winner by 11 years, the 61-year-old was again rolling back the years in glorious conditions on the Kent coast.
And just a day after playing partner Tom Lewis shot the lowest round in Open history by an amateur to claim a share of the overnight lead, Watson reclaimed the headlines by holing his tee shot to the 169-yard par-three sixth.
The American's four-iron approach was always right on line and bounced just once before plummeting into the hole to spark a massive roar from the large gallery.
The eagle took Watson from two over par to level and just five off the lead now held outright by Denmark's Thomas Bjorn, with Lewis having dropped shots at the fourth and sixth - perhaps understandably hitting a wild tee shot at the sixth after Watson's ace.
Watson is not the oldest player to record a hole-in-one in the Open however. Gene Sarazen was 71 when he aced the famous Postage Stamp at Troon in 1973.
Watson could do no wrong for the moment and picked up a birdie on the par-five seventh as well to improve to one under, four off the lead now shared by Bjorn and Darren Clarke.
Clarke was enjoying a rollercoaster round containing four birdies, an eagle, a bogey and a double bogey, moving from two under overnight to five under after 13 holes.
Lewis was two shots off the lead after reaching the seventh green in two but three-putting for par, while American Chad Campbell had set the early clubhouse target on three under after adding a 68 to his opening 69.
In contrast, Lee Westwood was now facing a battle to make the halfway cut, the world number two running up a double-bogey six on the eighth to slump to three over par.
