Tom Watson got backed up on the 17th tee, giving his fans time to offer all sorts of advice about the hole he famously birdied in 1982.

"The play is to the left of the green Tommy," one fan said.

"I would just like the hit the green once," Watson answered.

The 60-year-old former Open champ at Pebble Beach likely played his final U.S. Open round on Sunday. Watson couldn't replicate the magic of a year ago at Turnberry, his sterling first-round at Augusta earlier this year or Friday's second round when an even-par 71 gave Watson two more rounds on the course he loves.

Watson shot a 5-over 76 on Sunday to finish 11 over for the tournament.
