After a long and illustrious career, American golfer Tom Watson played his final round on Sunday before retiring from competitive golf.

Just six weeks shy of his 70th birthday, the eight-time major champion holed out for the last time at the Senior Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes – a tournament he has won three times, saying he no longer “has the tools in the toolbox” to be competitive in the Senior majors.

Five of Waston’s major titles came at the Open, where he first captured the Claret Jug in 1975 before adding further titles in 1980, 1982 and 1983.

He almost became the oldest major champion at the age of 59, only to lose in a play-off to Stewart Cink at the 2009 Open at Turnberry.
