Watson in Seniors Golf at Westchester Country Club

RYE, N.Y. -- Tom Watson, who won eight major golf tournaments, including five British Open Championships, during his PGA career, has joined the field for the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship to be held August 18-21 at Westchester Country Club. Watson, who is competing in his 34th British Open this week, has won 14 times since joining the Champions Tour in 1999.

“It’s terrific we are going back there to play and I’m really looking forward to it,” Watson said. “I like Westchester because the greens have an elevation and you have a few blind shots. It’s really a good golf course because of the variety of shots you have to hit. And I remember they had the best hot dogs in the world down the right side of No. 5.”

Watson’s experience on the Harrison course includes eight top 10 finishes, including a runner-up finish to David Graham in 1976 in PGA tour’s Westchester Classic (now known as The Barclays). Defending champion Mark O’Meara, David Frost, Bob Gilder, Jay Haas, Hale Irwin, Tom Kite, Loren Roberts, Scott Simpson, Bob Tway, Bobby Wadkins and D.A. Weibring join Watson in the event. Tickets to the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship are available by logging on to the official tournament website, www.ceseniorplayers.com, or by calling the championship office at 914-481-5900. A single-day grounds ticket is $20 plus tax and fees. This ticket is valid for grounds admission, good any one day, from August 17-21. A weekly clubhouse-access ticket is available for $125 plus tax and fees and offers admission to the grounds and to the clubhouse every day during the competition rounds, August 18-21.

Food and beverage is available in the clubhouse for additional purchase. Children 18 and under and active, retired and reserve military personnel are admitted to the grounds at no charge.
