Tom Watson "stunk up the joint" in first Open round at St Andrews

Five-time Open champion Tom Watson says that he "stunk up the joint" with his four-over-par first round of 76 at St Andrews.

Five-time champion Tom Watson has said that he "stunk up the joint" during the first round of The Open at St Andrews.

The 65-year-old is playing in his last Open and will have plenty to do if he is to make the cut tomorrow after a four-over-par round of 76 that included three double-bogeys on the back nine.

"I stunk up the joint today the way I played," the American told reporters. "Too many sixes on the back nine ruined my day.

"I had a little string of birdies going but made some unforced errors coming in... a little bit of brilliance but a bit of ugliness averaged it out."

Watson also announced on Wednesday that next year's Masters would be his last at Augusta.
