Ben Crenshaw says 2015 Masters will be his last
The former champion is calling it quits after next year.
Two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw said Saturday that next year's tournament in Augusta will be his last.
"I made the decision that next year is my last year," Crenshaw told the Golf Channel. "It is funny, on Amen Corner on the 13th hole on the first day, I hadn't told Carl yet, but I said, 'Carl, I've been thinking about this for a long time and next year would be a good year.'
"I'm very, very happy with it. I've thought about it for a long time. A lot of times I thought that I could have stepped down earlier. It is hard. Very hard. But I have been so fortunate. I have to look at the good things that have happened. I have to pull over and watch. I'm very resigned to being an encourager for everybody as much as I can."
Crenshaw, 62, has played in every Masters since 1972. He won the tournament in 1984 and '95.
Aside from his wins, Crenshaw has finished in the top 10 nine times.
