Elementary My Dear Watson
By kickntrue on 1/25/10
Tom Watson held off a late charge by Fred Couples to win the season opening event on the Champions Tour.
Kansas City golfer Tom Watson became the 13th oldest player to win on the Champions Tour, birdieing the final two holes Sunday for a 1-stroke victory over senior newcomer Fred Couples in the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship.

“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, but I had this one.”

The 60-year-old Watson closed with a 7-under 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.
You've got to love it! 60 years old and still able to compete, not only with those his own age, but as he proved at last year's British Open, he can compete with anyone.

You have to love that about golf. Can you imagine watching Michael Jordan trying to play in the NBA in 10 years?!
