“When you get to that position in your career, you’re just hoping to make it to Sunday, then it’s really time to hang them up,” Watson said. “With that said, I’m just going to make the announcement that next year’s Masters is going to be my last Masters. I am not going to play any more after that. Even though I will be eligible to play, I won’t play. The golf course is too big for me, and with my declining skills and length, I won’t be playing that.
