So says Rick George, president of the Champions Tour. "… to look at everything critically. We looked at [changing] the minimum age. We looked at carts. How do we make this product better?"
When you think Champions Tour, do you still mentally substitute "Seniors Tour"? Do you think of players who've started to decline in their physical abilities, but who still both love to compete and are fun to watch as athletes and personalities?
Do you think to yourself, "Those old bums should be walking, not loafing about in their golf carts!"
Evidently, the Champions Tour board seems to think that's exactly what we think, and they're out to change our minds.
In what could best be called a counter-intuitive decision, Champions Tour president Rick George is moving forward with the decision to ban golf carts during Champions Tour events. He's nice enough to 'accomodate' golfers like Casey Martin who must ride in a cart due to physical disability.
