Watson Out With Elbow Injury


Tom Watson will be out of the competitive arena on the Senior Tour for three to four weeks due to an elbow injury.
Watson strained his right elbow the week before the Masters Tournament, but went on to play not only that event, but the WORLDCOM Classic the week following.
The results have put him on a strict schedule of rest, therapy and medication for the next several weeks.
I hit a bunch of long irons and drivers, and it began to hurt, Watson said of the injurys beginnings. It was a combination of my workout regimen and hitting balls.
Watson will miss the Senior Tours Brunos Memorial Classic, but is hoping for a return by the TD Waterhouse Championship in Kansas City, where not only is he a hometown favorite, but the sponsors main draw.
We would do whatever we could to help heal it if we could, said tournament director Jeff Kleiber. Obviously, wed love to have him.
Said Watson: It (the elbow) needs complete rest, up to three to four weeks. Im pretty certain by St. Louis I wont aggravate it if I do the right things.
