“Tom Watson is one of golf’s all-time great champions and gentlemen. Given his incredible pedigree with five Claret Jugs and eight major championships, Tom is the ideal choice to bring the Ryder Cup back to the United States – as he did in 1993,” said John Ward, Adams Golf President. “Tom’s strong competitive drive and golf acumen have been instrumental in making Adams Golf stronger throughout the 13 years he has been our ambassador. Those qualities will serve him well as the 2014 United States Ryder Cup Captain. Good luck Captain Watson!”
