Why are players like Davis Love and Goosen still bothering with the tour?

They rarely make cuts. They would be better off playing on the Champions Tour and making a load of more money and playing with old buddies such as Lehman, Mediate, Daly, Monty, Parnevik, O'Meara...etc.

Oh wow that's such a mean question!

Davis Love won the Wyndham not 3 years ago in Greensboro.  Older and Wiser will always be relevant and always in power.  Why are most US senators 70 and over?  You have to pay your dues.

I have an image in my head of Goosen getting turned away with a fake ID as he tries to get into a Champions Tour event...come back next year son!

1) I am not a davis fan


Any particular reason that you would expand on?

Nah but my points are no fanboy posts regarding why I believe a player like him would still pursue the regular tour. Mostly, he has earned it

See thats reasonable. i marveled at his length in the early-mid 90s. Watching him majestic 1 irons on the range was very impressive. Like you, not a fan but hes earned it. 21 wins and a major is nothing to sneeze at
If you're talking about Goosen, he has two majors. Shinnecock and Southern Hills US Opens.

Nicklaus won 8 senior majors. He didn't stop playing until he was 63. If he did it I am not sure why Tiger and Phil wouldn't.
