This past weekend, 48 of Kansas City’s best golfers, including 8-time major champion Tom Watson, competed at Shadow Glen Golf Club in The Watson Challenge. After winning the 2017 Watson Challenge by 7 shots at Milburn CC, Andy Spencer sought to become the first back-to-back winner since Tom Watson, when he won the tournament four consecutive years form 2008-2011.
Watson finished the first round with a share of the lead after an impressive 5 under par, 67. However after a second round 72, Watson found himself 3 shots back of last year’s winner, Kansas University’s Andy Spencer. Spencer secured his second straight Watson Challenge victory with a final round 72. Watson finished one stroke behind after a respectable final round 70.
Thank you to everyone who attended this event, Shadow Glen Golf Club for hosting, and Tom Watson for his continued generosity in the Kansas City community. We are looking forward to another great Watson Challenge in 2019!
