i was looking at the pga seniors tour. they start seniors at age 50, but it sounded like it was confusing to determine who qualified to play. i think it could be easy in bbq, anyone over 50, meeting some grand championship qualifications(5?). i think this has been talked about to some degree in the past. seems like it would be a cool draw to bbq contests, to isolate "the legends".
these young guys in bbq today have a decided advantage with technology. some are also in their prime earning potential(disposable income). we(over 50) didn't have computers in high school, and they involved stacks of cards when we were in college. granted, older people can learn new tricks, but the older i get, the less i want to learn, the less i want to work, and the less money i have to work with. judging by my vast experience(which isn't very vast), most teams rise and fall within about 2-5 years, and compete maybe 5-10. i'm featuring the senior tour being made up of guys that have been doing it for 10-20 plus years,over 50, and have some grand championships under their belt. that would be cool.
