Watson announces Augusta finale

Tom Watson says the 2016 Masters will be his final tournament at Augusta National.

Watson made the announcement on Wednesday during a news conference previewing what he expects will be his last British Open.

The 65-year-old says he no longer hits the ball far enough to be competitive at the Masters.

This year, he opened with a one-under 71, but soared to an 81 in the second round. He hasn’t made the Augusta cut since 2010.

Watson could play another five years at the British Open by finishing in the top 10 this week at St Andrews.

He doesn’t expect that to happen and says his main goal is to just make the cut.

Watson is a two-time-Masters champion. He has won the British Open five times.
