Old Spicy-The Ginger

Tom Watson, who's now a 60-year-old golfer, became the 13th oldest player to win on the Champions Tour. He birdies the final two holes for a one-stroke victory over senior newcomer Fred Couples in the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai.

Watson coming off a win with Jack Nicklaus in the Wendy’s Champions Skins, closed with a seven-under-par 65 to finish at 22-under 194 for his 13th Champions Tour title and his first victory in 34 career starts in Hawaii on the two tours.


“This is what I live for in my career —. To do what I did today,”. Watson said. “I don’t think I’ll have too many more. I'd this one.”

After driving into the right rough, Watson hit a spectacular second shot with his golf equipment which from 147 yards that rolled 20 feet on the 18th green and stopped four feet from the hole.
Couples, who closed with a bogey-free 64, just missed his 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole. Watson calmly sank the winner and waved his cap to the roaring crowd.


It was a sweet victory for Watson, who made a magical run last year at the British Open before losing to Stewart Cink in a playoff. Watson didn’t want another playoff Sunday. “I didn’t win last year. That’s how I judge my year,”. He said. “If I win a golf tournament, it’s a success. So I started off the year with a success.”


Watson, who birdied the 10th, shook his right fist after holing a 22-foot birdie putt on the par-4 11th that tied Couples for the lead. Watson also went up-and-down to save par on Nos. 8 and 9. While the fans came to see Couples, Watson may have had a slight homefield advantage.Watson purchased one of the sprawling homes at Hualalai about a year ago. He was also teammates with the course designer, Nicklaus, a week ago at the Skins Game. They finished with 10 skins and $350,000 for their second victory in four years.


Watson always looks so relaxed in golf? For his victory, Watson takes home $315,000 and hook-shaped trophy.
