British Open

Robert Siegel speaks with Ben Curtis, the 26-year-old golfer from Ohio who was the suprise winner of the British Open golf tournament, which ended yesterday. This was the first "major" golf tournament Curtis had played in, and his total earnings this year from his play was a little more than $200,000. He pocketed $1.1 million with his win yesterday.
