Continued: Coming back: Nick Faldo can't resist the lure of Muirfield, where he won 2 of his Open titles

Experience clearly counts in this tournament. A year before Watson's remarkable performance, 53-year-old Greg Norman was the leader heading to the final day at Royal Birkdale.

Faldo has no illusions about making a similar run, saying it "would be quite an achievement if I could hover close to making the cut." Besides, he would prefer to avoid the sort of anguish that Watson was inevitably feeling as a sixth Open title slipped away.

"It could've been the greatest sporting achievement of all time," Faldo said. "I would be scarred from that, if I had a putt to win the Open, even at 59. And Tom is a very strong man. He probably won't really let on, but that would scar me. So I'm going to avoid having to putt to win."
