A two-hour rain delay greeted the contestants in the final day of the Tom Watson Challenge at The Country Club of Loch Lloyd. Massive thunderstorms moved into the Kansas City area overnight, pushing the starting times back to 9:30 a.m.

Harry Higgs and Zac Dittmer the overnight leaders at one under par, shared the tee with PGA Professional Robert Streb who began the day at even par. In wet conditions Streb showed the spectators why he is ranked 71st on the Fed Ex Cup standings. He had a bogey free round making eight birdies on the day to become the 2014 Tom Watson Challenge Champion.

Legendary Kansas City golfer Tom Watson began the final round at two over par. His second place finish included five birdies and no bogeys, to end the championship at three under par. As he started on day one, he birdied the first hole, then 3 and 6 on the front nine, and 13 and 16 on the back.

Zac Gaviak and Jon Troutman finished the tournament at three under par to share second place with Watson. Troutman began the day at one over par and made birdies at 4, 5, 7, 10, and 11 before posting a bogey on number 13. He then birdied 15 and made another bogey on 16 to finish at three under par. Zac Gaviak also began at one over par and made birdie on 2 and 3 then bogey on 4, finishing the front nine with birdies on 5 and 8. On the second hole of the back nine, he made bogey and then went on to post birdies on 12 and 14.

The Tom Watson Challenge is an annual event to determine the best golfer in Kansas City and benefits the First Tee of Kansas City.
