Congrats @stewartcink

The only people not too upset about Tom Watson failing to win the British Open over the weekend are probably most of the Twitter followers of Stewart Cink. He has been the PGA’s most active player on the popular social media site and has just under 600,000 followers. I’ve been following him for several months and while it would have been an epic sports moment had Tom Watson sunk that putt on 18, seeing Cink win his first major wasn’t at all a letdown.  We’ve gotten a glimpse of Cink’s PGA Tour lifestyle and personality through Twitter and his victory is well deserved.
Most casual golf fans probably didn’t know Stewart Cink prior to Sunday’s tournament. This certainly wasn’t a fluke win from some no-name golfer. Cink has been around for a long time and is one of the Tour’s most consistent players. While he only has 6 career victories, he is 10th on the list of all-time money leaders.
What’s next for these two golfers? Well Stewart Cink will be on Lettermen this evening doing the Top Ten list and will probably take a few weeks off before getting ready for the final major of the season, the PGA Championship, which starts on August 13. Tom Watson has to head over to England where he will tee it up at the Senior British Open which he has won 3 times already.The only people not too upset about Tom Watson failing to win the British Open over the weekend are probably most of the Twitter followers of Stewart Cink.
