Watson Challenge: Watson wins fourth

KANSAS CITY, MO. (June 12, 2011) --Tom Watson captured his fourth consecutive Watson Challenge title Sunday with a 2-under par 70. Watson played beautifully as he birdied the par-4 second to kick off the round. A nice run of pars left a large gap between himself and the field.

Sean Dougherty, Head Professional at Milburn Golf and Country Club, had pulled within two at the turn when Watson made a slip at the ninth. Watson would catch fire on the back side making birdies at the tenth, twelfth, and fourteenth. Dougherty would play well on the back, shooting a back-side 36 at even par to finish five strokes back of Watson. Dougherty finished at 1-over par for the tournament and captured his fourth second place finish.

Third place finisher and Low-Amateur Ryan Zech shot 2-over par 74 to finish two strokes behind Dougherty.
