HOYLAKE, England -- Old Tom Morris. Old Tom Watson.

Watson keeps making Open Championship cuts -- and history. He broke his own age record Friday just by sneaking into the weekend field at Royal Liverpool.

The 64-year-old Watson, who has won five Claret Jugs, remains the oldest player ever to make an Open Championship cut. He set the record in 2012 at Lytham.

"There's no age when I'm out there," he said Friday. "I'm doing the same thing as I did when I was 22 years old, although I can't hit the ball very hard anymore."

For what it's worth, Watson finished with the same two-day score as Tiger Woods: 2 over.
