PGA vs Sr PGA
« on: November 02, 2017, 06:34:00 pm »

Unless I am mistaken, and that is entirely possible......golfers on the Sr. tour can play regular PGA tour events but the golfers on the regular PGA tour that are under 50 years of age are not allowed to play events on the Sr tour. Is that correct? If so to me that is kind of BS. Once a pro golfer reaches 50 years of age, which is the age they can play on the Sr. tour, they should declare each year which tour they are going to play in and then be restricted to that tour. Jmo but it isn't right for a Sr golfer to have the ability to win on both tours but the regular tour player only have a shot on the regular PGA.

How many Sr. Tour players have won on the PGA tour? And why would a regular tour player want to play in a Sr. tournament? Seems like a dumb topic to me.

I'm pretty sure you're correct about age and playing down but I'm with majestic (now that we're not on the politics board  ;)). Don't see any reason why someone under 50 would want to play up.

Not a big deal, how many 50+ have a legitimate chance on the regular tour, has it happened, pretty sure, but it's a rarity. The reason regular PGA  tour guys can't play on the SR tour is simple, they aren't 50.

My point wasn't that those under 50 should be allowed to play up. More so that those over 50 should not be allowed to play down. Mickelson is 3 years away from turning 50 and he will still have just as much ability to win on the regular tour as any of them imo.

Was Raymond Floyd over 50 and on the Senior Tour when he won Doral?  I know Davis Love III was.

Well, I guess we should just tell Freddy to stop playing the Masters because he can't win.

You're out, hoss.  Because hogville says so.

I might be confused. I'm all for letting the older guys play regular tour events. Tom Watson nearly won the British Open a few years back. The regular tour is where the money is. Why would Rory want to play in the Senior Open?

Where did I post that regular tour members should want to play in the Sr. events? In fact I have pretty much clarified in my earlier post that it was the Sr.'s that shouldn't be allowed to play on both tours. No idea why that makes you think I am saying that players on the regular tour should be allowed to play Sr events.

Craig Stadler won on the regular tour after he joined the Senior Tour.  Love and Floyd too.  There may be one or two others.

Oh, and GoHogs says Langer would win every regular tour event if he chose to enter them.
