Presidential Guest Speaker
Tom Watson is one of the most successful and enduring professional golfers in the history of the sport. In 2009, nearing his 60th birthday, he led the British Open much of the way before losing in a playoff. It was the feel-good sports story of the year, and will be talked about for as long as games are played and reported. That stunning performance led to a revised British Open age limit that exempts Watson for at least five more years at the world's oldest major championship, a tournament he's won five times among his eight PGA Tour majors. In total, Watson has won 39 times on the PGA Tour; six times he was PGA Player of the Year and five times the leading money winner. Playing mostly on the over-50 Champions Tour now, he has won 13 more times there including five senior majors.
