Beer-Truck driver wins Senior event March 23, 2005, 4:08 pm

Chris,
Your either an idiot, or you know absolutely nothing about making it on tour. The senior tour is like having a chance at a second life. It is awesome to see a person with a dream and enough guts risk it all and fullfill what he aspired to be. Secondly the senior tour is not boring. It is great entertainment, with only the strong surviving. It gives an average PGA tour player a chance to be great. Case in point Hale Irwin. Hale was at best average on tour. When he turned 50, he dominated because he was in superior shape and mind. As he approaches 60 he can still compete with young PGA touring pros. The Senior Tour in many people's view is as, or more exciting than the regular tour. Also Chris, my money is on them beating the pants off you in a 5$ NASSAU.

Stop trashing the Senior Tour. Nobody is FORCED to watch it. Turn it off if you don't like it. I happen to enjoy it.

I, for one, appreciate the Champion's Tour. I agree, they aren't the players they used to be, but, it's still pretty good golf.
As a 50-year old, many of these guys are the guys I watched in their prime. I enjoy seeing them play. I think you are wrong about the boring nature of the tour.
The way I see it, they are simply playing in a different handicap category. We all do that at our regular courses. However, these guys still play some good golf and I enjoy watching them.
I don't know how old you are, but, I was taught to respect my elders. I think that the idea of seniors still being able to play and compete and have an audience, is fantastic!
Thanks, for reading my comments.
Signed,
New Geezer

"Champion's" tour March 23, 2005, 1:42 pm

If your tongue is not deep in your cheek you are un American!
It is a shame that other sports can not have the equivalent competitive environment for their "Seniors" who have graduated (by advancing age) from being able to compete with youthful players.
The players on the Champion's tour still play golf better than 98 percent of the rest of the golfing world

This is about living in USA where people from all walks of life is able to complete their AMERICAN DREAM and compete in GOLF. It is not about the tour, it is about GOLF. What a donkey you are.

I would watch any sport that had it's very best still playing well. I don't want to see these great men fade away. I love the Champions Tour and enjoy attending an event that I could possibly talk to a 76 year old Arnold Palmer or a 65 year old Jack Nicklaus or maybe a three time open champion like Hale Irwin who is still playing great.
You, my friend are writing about a sport that you obviously have no feeling. If I were the editor, you would have to go!

It's obvious that you went to Sports Journalism School with the lights out!!! How you could even possibly write for this Golf site is beyond belief.....someone with a third grade education could do a better job...it's obvious that you are out of your league when it comes to what golf is all about. I'll bet your hat size is the same as your backside...you are one big sorry IGNORAMUS. Mark Johnson, the beer man, has more quality and integrity in his little finger than you do in your ENTIRE body...it's obvious that you're not Beevus!!!

WEll obviously you are still under forty and think as I did that you will never make it past forty. I am now fifty nine and love the champions tour. By the way if you are such a golf buff yourself, go ahead and ask if they will let you play with them. Some of those over the hill dudes will whack you good.
I can't wait to hear you in another fifteen years when some young uspstart is telling you to get out of the way. Oh by the way the baby boomers you are talking about are going to rock your boat for at least the next fifteen years since they are the largest cohart of people in the nation. Good luck with your future hearing aid by the way.

Wow, such cynicism! Sometimes me wonders if you just try to get people worked up to keep your job! The beauty is, you're not unAmerican when you voice your opinions or make choices! That's only one thing about this great country of ours that makes it great! You can choose...... not to watch! As you can choose to write cynical, bombastic, sarcastic articles! You say "who cares?" Apparently the millions who still attend the tournaments or occasionally tune in to watch them on T.V. Or the thousands or perhaps millions who have benefited from their charity. Golf does not force you to do anything! Tune out! Apparently you don't play. Comparing golf to the NCAA's is an injustice; each have their own following. If you do play, and I obviously have no idea of your game, I'll take the worst player on the 'old man's tour' and put them up against you anytime. But, conversely I wouldn't expect them to win any literary prizes either! Hmmmm, for the time being I'll reserve my expectations of you in that area.
