It is not many times where I discuss senior men’s golf.
But the Champions Tour schedule is significantly wacky. Why? Well the United States Senior Open is exactly a week after the British Senior Open and has been since 2008.
Having the British Senior Open and United States Senior Open on back to back weekends, in my opinion is even more challenging than the Tour de France.
The players would strike if the PGA Tour scheduled the PGA Championship the weekend directly after the British Open! Woods and Mickelson would be doing temper tantrums! Wait, I think we’ve seen Woods do a few of those already.
It is an outstanding mental exam to play two major tournaments on back-to-back weekends and it is even more remarkable that German Bernhard Langer was able to accomplish the double victory a year ago several time zones apart.
