Watson has five pieces for sale, each of them signed, matted and framed along with a certificate of authenticity. A portion of the proceeds go to the Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research.

The most expensive of the pieces offered is a 2009 Open Championship flag on which he has written the years of his five British Open victories. It sells for $1,495.

He is selling them only through his website, tomwatson.com.
