The Open Champion

He was magnificent. Six-under through the first eleven holes at Royal St. George is just about as good as it gets, and from there Ben Curtis put it on "grind" and brought it home at 2-under with a great par at the last to win The Open Championship. His fiance, Candace Beatty, captured the moment: "I can't even describe this," she said. "It's so awesome to watch someone fulfill their dream, to see it come alive before your eyes."
