Baby Boomer Golfer Tom Watson Top 4 Inspiring Quotes Baby Boomer Professional Golfer Tom Watson“No other game combines the wonder of nature with the discipline of sport in such carefully planned ways. A great golf course both frees and challenges a golfer’s mind.”

“A lot of guys who have never choked have never been in the position to do so.”

“The person I fear most in the last two rounds is myself.”

“Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is sign on as its accomplice.”

~Tom Watson

Watson was tied for the lead after the first round of The 2010 Masters at age 60 and was 2nd in the 2009 Open Championship.

Thomas Sturges “Tom” Watson (born September 4, 1949 in Kansas City, Missouri) is a professional golfer who has played on the PGA tour for almost 40 years.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Watson was one of the leading players in the world, winning eight Major Golf Championships and heading the PGA Tour money list five times. He was the number one player in the world according to World Golf Rankings from 1978 through 1982; in both 1983 and 1984 he was ranked second behind Seve Ballesteros.

Watson is now also notable for defying age; at nearly 60 years and 26 years after his last major victory, he led much of the 2009 Open Championship but eventually lost in a four-hole playoff. With a chance to win the tournament with par on the 72nd hole, he three-putted; he lost the playoff to Stewart Cink.
Of Watson’s eight major championships five were Open Championships, two Masters titles and one U.S. Open title.

The only “major” that eluded him is the PGA Championship, which would have put him in an elite group of golfing “grand slam” winners that includes Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen, and Tiger Woods. In all, Watson ranks 6th on the list of total major championship victories, and he is one of only fourteen players to have won at least three of the four golfing major titles.
