Tom Watson Bio

A lifelong golfer, Watson began his golf career in 1971, the same year he graduated from Stanford University. He has won eight major championships on the regular tour - two Masters (1977 and 1981), one US Open (1982), and five British Opens (1975, 1977, 1980, 1982, 1983). He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1988.

One of his most memorable wins, was the US Open in 1982 at Pebble Beach. Nicklaus, playing two groups ahead of Watson in the final round, charged into a share of the lead with five consecutive birdies. When Watson reached the par-3 17th hole the two were still tied, but with Nicklaus safely in the clubhouse at 4 under par 284. Watson hit his tee shot on 17 into the rough just off the green. He faced an extremely difficult chip shot downhill on a very fast green that sloped toward the Pacific Ocean. While being interviewed on national television and fully aware of Watson's terrible predicament, Nicklaus appeared confident he was on his way to an unprecendented fifth US Open championship. Watson's chip shot, amazingly, hit the flagstick and landed in the cup, giving him a near-miraculous birdie and setting the stage for yet another win over Nicklaus. Watson went on to birdie the 18th as well, for a final margin of two shots.

He joined the Champions Tour in 1999, the same year he earned an honorary membership of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews in Scotland. In total Watson won 39 events on the PGA TOUR between 1974 and 1998. He has numerous Champions Tour wins, while also winning a number of unofficial and international events.
