Tom Watson Posts Best Tournament Finish in Three Years
Tom Watson finished in second place at the Senior PGA Championship in Benton Harbor, Michigan. It was his best finish since winning the same event in 2011.
Colin Montgomerie of Scotland won by four strokes.
Watson said he has mixed feelings about finishing second.
“You need to make the putts to win and I didn’t do it today, but I certainly had the opportunities today,” he said. “It could have been a real low round today, and so I come away with a really good feeling inside about the way I played.”
Watson shot a 6-under par 65 in the final round. At the age of 64, he knew as one of the oldest players in the 156-player field the crowd at the Harbor Shores golf course was pulling for him.
Watson collected $227,000 for his runner-up finish. Watson collected $227,000 for the runner-up finish.
