No kid wants to be a golfer for a Halloween: The PGA Tour's nightmare on main street
The kids just don’t care about golf.
Did anyone in the entire country see a kid dressed up as a pro golfer?
That Tiger Woods craze is long gone. Kids today are much more interested in being Dwyane Wade, Derek Jeter or in some parts of the country, even Matt Leinart. (Thankfully, not even the youth are on the Ben Roethlisberger bandwagon any more.)
Going as a golfer is apparently more lame than that old Friday the 13th mask that somehow’s stuck around for years.
And talk your cake costume for the lazy kid. Pull on a red Nike shirt, a black Nike hat and grab your dad’s old iron and you’re Tiger. Slap on a short skirt and a sparkly watch, put a never-opened new rulebook in your pocket and grab a broken putter and you’re Michelle Wie.
What an easy road to a huge candy stash!
And yet, you don’t see kids hitting Halloween as golfers. That shows you plenty about where golf is as a sport.
By the way, there’s no truth to the rumor that I wrote this blog just to have one about Halloween costumes on this big board that actually made sense.

I'm always amused at this obsession we have with growth. The economy has to grow, golf has to grow, etc. Nothing grows forever.
And I'm happy that golf is contracting. It means that the courses will be less crowded, and that suits me just fine.
