I’m taking this (almost) completely out of context, but in a recent interview Tom Watson called out what he calls the “Tiger Tour”:
“The regular tour is basically a Tiger Woods tour, and some people say that’s getting old,” Watson said. “But our tour doesn’t get old. Every year you have new names coming out. That makes it new and exciting. People will tune in to see how Seve Ballesteros does or to see how Mark O’Meara does. That gives us great viability.
The most important thing about our Champions Tour is that every year somebody of note comes out, usually more than one or two. That gives a new story every year about the tour.”
Watson was, of course, simply trying to hype the steady influx of new (and yet familiar) players onto the Champions Tour. But there’s definitely an edge in those comments.
