The Caddie Hall of Fame

Tom Watson


Class of 2012


DATE OF INDUCTION: NOVEMBER 9, 2012
The winner of eight major championships and 39 PGA TOUR events, one of the golf's greatest players is known as much for his friendship and love for his caddie as his brilliance on the course.

Tom Watson racked up dozens of victories on the PGA TOUR, six Open Championship titles, two green jackets and a U.S. Open victory alongside caddie Bruce Edwards on his bag. The two worked together from 1973 through 1989 then again from 1992 until 2003. In 2003, Edwards was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Their close relationship and Watson’s support of Edwards as he battled ALS was chronicled in John Feinstein’s best-selling book "Caddy For Life: The Bruce Edwards Story." Edwards died a year later but Watson continued to honor his memory, serving as honorary chairman of the board of the Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research.

For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Tom Watson earned a place in The Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
