“You would think there would be a way to make the whole Ryder Cup experience that much better by including something for the former greats,” said the 51-year-old.
“People would love to watch Tom Watson tee it up in a singles match against Sandy Lyle or Bernhard Langer. That would be really fun for the fans to see.
“If it was part of the lead up to the actual Ryder Cup it would be a lot of fun. It would be competitive. It would be somewhat inspirational.
“There’s only one Ryder Cup and that’s for the young bucks.
“But to bring back some of the golden oldies – people would love to see their long-time heroes play in a Ryder Cup-type event, as long as it didn’t detract from the real thing. That always need to stay front and centre as the biggest event in golf.”
I totally agree. There’s a crop of “senior” golfers out there (and coming up) with tremendous name and face recognition. It would be huge.
