Ian Woosnam, the 1991 Masters Tournament winner, has announced that he would no again compete at Augusta National Golf Club.
Woosnam, 64, has been a regular at the Masters since 1988, missing just the tournaments in 2007 and 2020. Between 1989 and 2000, he made 12 consecutive cuts, but he didn’t make the cut again until 2008, which turned out to be his final weekend on the course.
Apart from his 1991 victory, when he was presented with his green jacket by Nick Faldo, his best finish at Augusta was a tie for 14th, which he achieved twice.
‘Woosie’ was elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017 after winning the European Tour Order of Merit twice (1987, 1990).
In 1991, he shot to the top of the world on Monday of Masters week, and six days later, he won his only major championship.
Today @IWoosnam announced he’s through playing the Masters. On the day he was inducted into the Hall Of Fame in ‘17, he reminisced with me about his years in a broken down camper van & how the farmer’s son didn’t want a life milking cows. https://t.co/iZwxTKUvfY via @golfweek
