A larger than life-size sculpture of professional golfer Tom Watson. Watson was a major force in raising money for Children's Mercy Hospitals through his annual Children's Mercy Golf Tournament. Through his efforts and the tournament, Watson raised millions of dollars for a wide array of hospital programs and services. The sculpture stands over seven feet tall and features Watson holding a child in his left arm and holding a putter in his right hand which the child is also holding.
