Old and New: Kite and Na

Greg Stoda in the Palm Beach Post has written a column contrasing Tom Kite—perhaps the oldest regular on the PGA Tour and Kevin Na—the youngest.

Greg writes:

The Na vs. Kite comparison is the kind of thing that makes golf wonderful. It also happens to be the kind of thing that makes golf odd at the highest level…

…  Na, who already has earned $804,105 this season, knows nothing other than huge purses from which to collect loot. Here’s how ancient Kite is: The PGA Tour’s total purse his first full season in 1973 was a couple of million dollars less than what Vijay Singh won all by his lonesome last year.
