Watson looking forward to time in Great Britain
EDMOND, Okla. -- At 56, Tom Watson understands that his golf career is winding down. But he still thinks he can be competitive in one of his favorite tournaments - if the conditions are right.
Watson, who will play in the Senior PGA Championship this week at Oak Tree Golf Club, already is looking forward to playing in back-to-back British Opens in July. The regular British Open will be in England at Royal Liverpool, a course Watson never before has played, and the following week, the Senior British Open will be at Ayrshire in Scotland.
Those two tournaments will end a five-week stretch during which Watson also will play in the Greater Kansas City Golf Classic in Overland Park, Kan.; the U.S. Senior Open at Prairie Dunes in Hutchinson, Kan.; and the Ford Senior Players Championship in Dearborn, Mich.
The five-time British Open winner was asked Wednesday if he thinks a player 50 or older will someday win a major on the regular PGA Tour. (He answered yes.) That led to an obvious question: Could that player be him?
``I think that the British Open is more of a place where I could win,`` Watson said. ``The Masters, I`m out of the equation at the Masters. Unless we get real hard conditions, the Masters is pretty much out of my league. The U.S. Open, the way they`re adding length ... I couldn`t do it at the U.S. Open. But at the British Open, I might still be able to do it.``
