Check out the US Ryder Cup Team that will take on Europe in the 2014 Ryder Cup being played at Gleneagles at the end of September, led by captain Tom Watson
Name: Tom Watson
Ryder Cup Appearances: 4 (’77, ’81, ’83, ‘89)
Record: W10 L4 H1
Major Championship Wins: 8
Watson comes to Gleneagles having led the US to victory before, when he captained the ’93 side that triumphed 15-13 at The Belfry. This was the last time the US were victorious on European soil, and with 12 new players this time around, Watson will no doubt be looking to replicate similar success. An 8-time major champion in his own right, Watson also notched up 39 wins on the PGA Tour and amassed a total of 71 professional victories worldwide. He won a remarkable 5 Open Championship’s and won 6 PGA Tour Player of the Year awards, and of all the players who challenged Jack Nicklaus’ supremacy, Tom Watson is widely regarded as having carved out the greatest legacy.
