TOM WATSON

Age: 63.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 994.

Worldwide wins: 51.

Majors: Masters (1977, 1981), US Open (1982), British Open (1975, 1977, 1980, 1982, 1983).

At his best in 2013: Took only 22 putts in the final round and tied for 38th at The Greenbrier Classic.

At his worst in 2013: Rounds of 79-78 at the Masters.

British Open moment: The only man to win the Open on five courses.

Pot bunker mentality: It has been 30 years since he won his last major, but this is Tom Watson, and this is the Open Championship. He came inches from winning at Turnberry in 2009, instead losing in a playoff to Stewart Cink. No other contemporary understands links golf like Watson.
