Watson and Wadkins So Masterly

By Alex Lancaster in Jacksonville, Florida

Lanny Wadkins and Tom Watson bot feel that they are approaching their best form at just the right time for them to do well at the US Masters at Augusta stating April 12.

In some of the worst conditions in United States golf they dominated the Tournament Players Championship at Sawgrass. Wadkins finishing five shots ahead of Watson to take the £36,000 first prize.

Wadkins who has won £65,000 already this year said, “I’m taking each tournament as it comes, but it sure is a good start to the season to win two events” (the other being the Los Angeles Open).

Watson, of course, won the Green Jacket in 1977 and was joint runner-up to Gary Player last year. he was the only player to break par with his 71 on the final round at Sawgrass.

Jack Nicklaus, who has an unparalleled record in the Masters, he has won four times since 1963, showed fine composure after his final rounds of 82 and 78.

But he must be extremely worries about his form with Augusta so near. Like Severiano Ballesteros and Gary Player. Nicklaus is trying to find a state of mind rather than a golf game.
