Five-time champion Tom Watson will get his Open Championship exemption extended by one year so he can conclude his career at St. Andrews with a 40th-anniversary appearance in the tournament.

The fade is a great shot to have in your arsenal of shots for your next round. Like most golfers, I started out hitting a fade - ok - many times a slice, but through the years and the advent of new technology on the clubs, I'm now hitting the baby draw most of the time.

Old Donald Ross' handiwork is playing as tough as anything the flatbellies have seen and will provide some unprecedented entertainment value in the form of artistic (or not) recovery shots.
