I'm pleased for old rival Immelman Get daily updates directly to your inbox+ SubscribeThank you for subscribing!TREVOR IMMELMAN has spent the week basking in the glory of becoming US Masters Champion.
Scots golfer Craig Watson, meanwhile, has been selling washing machines, fridges and TVs.Back in 1997, Immelman couldn't live with the Glaswegian on the course as Watson put the South African to the sword in the Amateur Championship.Their golfing paths have gone at right angles since that day at Sandwich, Kent, but Watson has no regrets and was delighted to see his former victim conquer the cream of golf at Augusta.Watson said: "I watched it all and was very pleased Trevor won. I can now say I have beaten someone who went on to win a Major."No one got within two or three shots of him burberry shop online europe at any point and he held it together really well. I always felt he could go on to bigger things with the connections he had. He knew people like Gary Player, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen and, at 17, you could see his talent."It's funny thinking back to 1997. I only went to Sandwich because it was one of the Open courses I hadn't played. It's burberry mode a nine hour trek and you normally wouldn't bother but I also knew people down there, so it was a double edged thing. I hardly played a practice round at Sandwich because it was too windy but I did okay when the competition started."I had a friendly run all the way to the final but was two down after the first 18 holes."Fortunately, the wind got up for the second round and you were looking for par golf. In the end I won 3 and 2."Victory earned the East Renfrewshire member entry to the Walker Cup as well as the Masters and Open in 1998.He said: "It's difficult to win a second time because you know what is at stake. I didn't have any idea."I played the Sandwich final oblivious to the fringe benefits but I got to play in the Open at Troon, the Masters and also the Walker Cup at Quaker Ridge near New York."I always laugh. My mate played Walker Cup up at Nairn and won. We lost heavily but I flew business class to the US and I preferred that to winning after a car trip to Nairn."Troon was okay for the Open but I missed the cut by two. The Masters was also a great experience and you just play from watching the TV."While Immelman plays in massive US and European Tour events, Watson works in an electrical shop in Giffnock.There are no regrets, though. burberry tote outlet He said: "I was 31 when I won the Amateur. You could develop your game by playing full time but it wasn't for me and, anyway, I played rubbish the couple of times I tried."I enjoy life. I doubt Trevor ever looks back and wonders what he would be doing had he beaten me. I'm the same I don't look back either."Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterDaily NewsletterTransfer TalkTransfer news live as Celtic and Rangers plus rest of the Premiership continue to build for new seasonJoin us on Scotland's No1 live transfer blog for all the latest done deals, news and rumours from the Scottish Premiership, EPL and Europe.Rangers FCRangers boss Pedro Caixinha says goals are going to appear after defeat against St JohnstoneThe Portuguese watched as his side were defeated 1 0 at Auchenhowie and Caixinha is confident despite his team struggling to find the net.Celtic FCCeltic boss Brendan Rodgers tells Leigh Griffiths daft bookings could keep him out the teamThe Hoops boss admitted his disbelief at the yellow card after the bottle incident but thinks Griffiths should have thought twice about the scarf show.
