I’d agree, but it’s a particular shame with Seve. He’s been like that for 10 years, and he’s only 50 now! If he was a horse, he’d have been put down by now. His back troubles are one of golf’s big travesties.
I’m not in agreeance with the whole ‘past champions’ thing. It just keeps out younger, hungrier players who may actually compete. The whole thing just reminds me of when old racehorses get paraded at big meetings.
Unfortunately, I don’t even think he’ll get much joy there. Look at Craig Stadler & Tom Watson; they still look respectable against the young guns, and they aren’t even the very best on the Senior’s tour.
