This last Saturday, during the Champion's Tour event Insperity Championship, they had a tournament within a tournament. They staged a scramble with the "Greats"

On one team you had Don January, Dave Stockton and Miller Barber on another team you had Lee Trevino, Gene Littler, and David Graham, and finally the headline team, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Players.

We do not talk much about the Champion's Tour but if they continue to have events like this it will get more chatter. I just happened to record it this weekend and it is pretty good.


The one thing that stands out, aside from watching four guys with 198 PGA Tour victories and 40 major championships betweeb them, and the fact that they seemed to really enjoy themselves, was the politeness they showed their caddies. "Would you hand me the towel, please." "Thank you." etc... They were fun to watch.

Palmer, Nicklaus, and Players won the scramble -11 on 18 holes, not bad. But they already had the tournament won by a stroke and they took their time and made the birdie to win by two.

They finished up and were greeted on the 18th green by the top 30 players on the Champion's Tour.

Great show, I would like to see a yearly event but these guy are getting old. It was billed as possibly the last time these three played together.

    I heard a rumor that Golf Town in Canada is going out of business. They will be shutting stores and going online only. Has anyone else heard this? Is there any truth to it?

    Wood Bros Persimmon, has anyone done a comparrison of the distance that they managed to hit old Wood Bros drivers. I recently obtained a Kool Kat ads have found that it is only about 5-10 yards shorter than my gamer Callaway 815 Alpha. I have just turned 50 so grew up with persimmon and still enjoy playing them occasionally but most of the 50's clubs are about 20 yards behind , I normally carry the Callaway about 235-240 as my swing speed has come down to about 95mph. Would be interested...
