When we are talking about grace and staying true to the game it doesn’t get any better than Tom Watson.
Thomas Sturges Watson was born in September 4, 1949 and is still one of the most iconic golfers of our time. With 71 professional victories and 8 major titles he was one of the few players who challenged Jack Nicklaus in his prime years.
Their head-to-head battles made golf history and held everybody in awe.
One of the most dramatic and famous shots was the chip in by Watson at the U.S. Open in 1982 at the 17th hole of Pebble Beach. (His trousers alone are worth the watch ;-) )
