Tom Watson

Golf Pro Emeritus at The Greenbrier (2005-2015)


Tom Watson, winner of 39 events on the PGA TOUR including eight majors, was The Greenbrier's Golf Professional Emeritus for ten years.

Tom is the only modern player to win the British Open five times. Other major victories include the 1977 and 1982 Masters and the 1982 U.S. Open where his pitch-in from deep grass on Hole 17 at Pebble Peach sealed his victory over Jack Nicklaus. At age 65, he was also selected as the oldest captain ever by the PGA of America for the 2014 Ryder Cup.

Tom had a long history with The Greenbrier. His first visit was in 1979 when The Greenbrier hosted the International Ryder Cup Matches. The birth of Tom's first child pulled him away just as competition was to begin, but a year later he was back as a resort guest, having chosen The Greenbrier for a meeting with his sponsors and business associates.
