Eight-time major golf winner Tom Watson’s wife Hilary died Wednesday after fighting a two-year battle against pancreatic cancer.
She was declared cancer free after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation in 2017, but the cancer came back two months later.
‘The void she leaves will be filled by memories which will always remain as they leave indelible marks on our souls which we will never forget,’ Tom Watson told Golf Digest.
