Two-time Masters winner Tom Watson will be honored at the Mayor's Masters Reception on April 2, 2012.

The 14th annual event will be held April 2 at 6 p.m. at the Augusta Common with more than 40 restaurants participating.

“Tom Watson is one of the true gentlemen of the game of golf and serves as the embodiment of a champion,” Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver said in a prepared statement. “It is truly a privilege to have the opportunity to honor his Masters wins in 1977 and 1981 at this year’s Mayor’s Masters Reception.”

Watson won eight majors in his career and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1988.
