The Champions Tour has about had it in my view. I'm a very big golf fan and follow all the tours except that one. My feeling is the players make way too much money and they don't deserve it. The way to save it is introduce a cut to get rid of the dead wood and get a qualifying system like the PGA tour. But even then all they have is something akin to minor league baseball.

This newest qualifying system developed by the PGA should achieve their objective of eliminating the unknown golfer from making it on the champions tour. I have been a long time supporter of the various tours but this latest manipulation by the powers to be to make sure the old guard gets to play is unbelievable. Why not just hand pick those you think will ring the cash register for the champions tour and leave it at that.

Two very astute comments! My former teaching pro is number 28 on the $$$ list...he's a great guy, but perhaps not the "live wire" that the Great and Powerful Oz wants to sell tickets and tv time. Truth of the matter is, club pros need to adjust to the rigors of traveling. I almost think that career amateurs might adjust better, given their travel schedules. As regular PGA tour members make more and more cash at younger ages, fewer will want to play the Senior Tour. Remember how thrilled guys like Don January and Miller Barber were back in the 1980s, to once again be competing for legitimate cash? Those days are gone!!

Ron Monkey, I am truly pulling for you to
get your game together. Kicking your
ass weekly, while getting paid to hang
out in Europe, would be a dream come true.

Don't let me down!

Why not add to the Champion's field?
Let amateur men 25 and up play--and
let any woman compete. It could
become a restricted eligibility Tour
that could pit players from 3 different
groups. That could add to the interest.

RON;This is communism in the good o USA.there are so many good golfers out there that could compete on the senior tour thats its not even funny and they know it.ilike the underdogs but its obvious that the pga doesnt.this is a closed shop and should be challenged. One day someone will and will win.Its so obvious what they are doing.this is not competition its an exhibition plain and simple.If they want real competition open it up and let more club pros in and anyone that is good enough and you would have some great storylines and you would see how many OTHER great golfers there are in this country.o yea how about the foreigneners the just eliminated them.
