 Ryder Cup Captain Tom Watson will be spending two weeks in a row in Georgia.

Watson just confirmed that he will be participating in the Greater Gwinnett Championship presented by Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating, a Champion’s Tour event at TPC Sugarloaf held April 15-21, the week immediately following the Masters.

As a Hall of Famer and eight-time major champion, Watson is accustomed to media attention, but 13 years of Champions Tour golf has softened his exposure a bit. Now, with the historic nature of his Ryder Cup captaincy and the announcements he will be making in the coming days, Watson is the Man of the Hour every time he tees it up.  

Sugarloaf will be no exception.
