Watson has enjoyed the perks that come with success. He’s ready to add to the resume.

“Being a major champion, it’s great,” Watson said. “But I don’t know, that was like four or five months ago, so we’ve got to try to do something else now.”

Watson played just once in July, finishing 23rd at the British Open. He opened with a 66 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week before fading to 19th.

No one knows how difficult the adjustment back to solid golf can be than the PGA Championship’s last winner, Keegan Bradley. He said he barely slept the week after his triumph at Atlanta Athletic Club because he was so excited. His game was over the top at times, too, as Bradley struggled to regain the steadiness that won him the major.

It took him nearly a year to discover it again, when Bradley won the Bridgestone Invitational last weekend.

“It’s just a matter of getting back to what you’ve always done and that’s play golf and not put too much pressure on yourself,” he said.

Watson believes the pressure is off, particularly after completing the legal hurdles and paperwork to make Caleb’s adoption complete.

“We got that done,” Watson said. “And now we’re on to trying to win this tournament, trying to play good golf, trying to get better in the game.”
