Hilary Watson, wife of World Golf Hall of Famer Tom Watson, passed away November 27, 2019, after a 2-1/2 year battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 63.
“Hilary was a very special person — bright, principled, accomplished and she had a gift of uplifting those around her,” former PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem said. “And when Hilary set out to do something, she did it successfully. I’ll always remember the stories of her rodeo days, where she won all sorts of medals and ribbons, even after her illness. Most of all, Hilary was a wonderful mate for Tom, we could all see that. My heart goes out to Tom and his family at this difficult time.
