AUGUSTA, Ga — The average window of opportunity for most players, even the very good ones, to win on the Champions Tour is four or five years.
You turn 50, you’re one of the kids out there, and you get to take advantage of your relative youth against the guys whose bodies are ever more rapidly succumbing to Father Time.
Bernhard Langer has long been an exception to this rule among the senior set, still a good bet to win every time he tees it up, even at age 58.
But it’s different here.
This place, this tour, where the kids bomb it 350 yards and win majors when they’re 21 — the place Tiger Woods inspired — is no country for old men.
Isn’t that right, Bernhard?
