Tom Watson's final round shot at the 17th in the
1982 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach:
A U.S. Open For The Ages, Tom Watson
Chip-In To Win Stunned Jack Nicklaus. Jack Nicklaus was looking
for a record fifth U.S. Open title when the championship returned
to Pebble Beach in 1982, but Tom Watson was tied with Nicklaus through
70 holes when his tee shot, 2 iron, at 17 found the left rough.
Faced with a challenging 16 foot pitch, caddie Bruce Edwards told
Tom to "get it close," but Watson retorted,
"I'm not going to get it close,
I'm going to make it."
If you ask the question what comes
to mind when you mention the career of Tom Watson. The single most
defining moment is the chip in at the seventeenth in the final round
of the 1982 US Open.
