Tom Watson Announces Retirement from the Masters

On Wednesday at St. Andrews, two-time Masters champion Tom Watson announced that next year will be his final trip to Augusta National to compete in the Masters, citing a decline in skills as the reason.

Watson, 65, has not made the cut at the Masters since 2010.

“The golf course is too big for me, and with my declining skills and length, I won’t be playing that,” said Watson. “The toolbox is kind of half-empty with the tools I used to be able to play good golf. Those tools are missing right now, or pretty rusty — rusty like me.”
