Villanova sophomore golfer Henry Watson (Pittsburgh, Pa./Shady Side Academy) has already cemented his name in Villanova athletics lore by winning the individual championship at the Rehoboth Beach Invitational last spring. Watson continued his strong play over the summer, earning the recognition of Sports Illustrated.
Watson represented Villanova by appearing in the Sept. 29, 2003 issue in the "Golf Faces in the Crowd" section for a round he played at the Fox Chapel Golf Club. Watson had two holes in one on the front nine. He used a 5-iron on the 207-yard par-three third hole, and a 4-iron on the 192-yard par-3 sixth.
Watson and the 'Cats recently completed the fall portion of their schedule at the Georgetown Invitational. Watson recorded his best finish of the fall season, placing 23rd with a three-over par 75.
