Now here’s a suggestion that surely can’t fail – a Ryder Cup for senior golfers.
As Bernhard Langer captured the Senior British Open at Carnoustie at the weekend, the idea was put forward by runner-up Corey Pavin, the current American Ryder Cup captain.
"It would probably have a different feel but it would be very competitive - players would want to win just as bad,” said Pavin.
And with more and more household names turning 50, there’s little doubt that such an event would capture the imagination.
For Europe, there are players of the quality of Langer, Ian Woosnam, Sam Torrance and Mark James, while even Nick Faldo may be persuaded out of the commentary booth.
For the US, there are the likes of Pavin, Fred Couples, Tom Lehman and Mark O’Meara.
Be honest – you’d rather watch most of those than some of the journeymen yanks who will play in the Ryder Cup this year anyway. Fred Couples or Matt Kuchar, anyone?
