Watson, was born September 4, 1949 in Kansas City, Missouri. He is one of the leading players in the world, winning eight major championships and heading the PGA Tour money list five times. He was the number one player in the world, according to McCormack’s World Golf Rankings, from 1978 through 1982, and in both 1983 and 1984 was second in those rankings behind Seve Ballesteros by only the barest of margins. He spent 32 weeks in the top 10 of the successor Sony Rankings in their debut in 1986. Several of his major victories during this period came at the expense of Jack Nicklaus, the man he replaced as number one, but their continuing rivalry and friendship served to increase golf’s popularity during the time.

A memorable moment in Watson’s career came at the 2003 U.S. Open, when, at age 53, he took the opening-round lead by shooting a 65 with his longtime caddy Bruce Edwards carrying his clubs. The latter would succumb to Lou Gehrig’s disease on April 8, 2004 at the age of 49.

Watson 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. St. Andrews is one of the few Open venues where Watson did not claim victory. He has 12 wins on the Champions Tour, including five senior majors, while playing a relatively limited schedule of events. Watson was one of two players to play with Jack Nicklaus in the final two rounds of golf in Nicklaus’ career, which ended at the 2005 The Open Championship on the Old Course at St Andrews. Englishman Luke Donald was the third member of the group.
