Tom Watson - Making of a Champion

Tom Watson was a Stanford letter winner in 1969, 1970 & 1971. He was a 2nd team All-American in 1969, 1970 & 1971. He's a member of the Stanford Hall of Fame and the World Golf Hall of Fame. He has won 8 PGA tour major championships including 5 British Opens, 2 Masters and 1 US Open victory. Tom was awarded the PGA Tour's Payne Stewart award in 2003. Some consider him the greatest British Open champion of all time.

For many, many years Tom would come back to Stanford and generously host a very popular tournament in his name as a fundraiser for the golf program and Stanford University. This annual Watson tournament was a great favorite for fellow pros, Stanford alums, former players and leaders in the Silicon Valley business community.

In the video below, Sandy Tatum speaks very personally about how his nearly 40 year relationship with Tom Watson has enriched his life.
