PALM BEACH GARDENS — To witness one of their tournaments is to relive history. The PGA Seniors Tour is another time, another era brought back to life.

There is Arnold Palmer, charging again, his army living and dying with every shot.

There is Gary Player, dressed in black, his intensity as obvious as his methodical swing.

There is Doug Sanders with his classic short backswing, blinding galleries with his purple or green or orange attire.

There is Billy Casper, Orville Moody, Ken Still, Miller Barber, Tommy Aaron, Al Geiberger and a host of others….. forgotten players making a living again playing golf.

The greats come to PGA National today to play for the $25,000 first prize in the PGA Seniors Championship.

“The Senior Tour is a traveling golf museum,” said Bob Brue, 53, who joined the tour in 1986. “Just about every big name in golf can be seen out here. I think it’s wonderful.”

But the tour, which is in its ninth year, has become much more than a nostalgic glimpse at one of golf’s most colorful eras.

What started as a short series of old-timers’ gatherings in 1980 has grown into a full-fledged, money-making business.

This year’s tour will consist of 37 tournaments, with a total prize money of $10,500,000.

Players who would have long ago faded from view on the regular PGA Tour are getting rich out here.

Three — Miller Barber, Don January and Gene Littler — have earned $1 million in their second careers. Six others — Peter Thomson, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Bruce Crampton, Lee Elder, Billy Casper and Orville Moody — are closing in on $1 million.

“The Senior Tour is like a new life for me,” Rodriguez said. “It is the greatest thing that has ever happened and I just hope I can give some of this success and happiness back to the fans.”

Since joining the tour in 1985, Rodriguez has won 10 tournaments, including seven last season as he became the tour’s most dominant player. At the same time, he has become perhaps the most popular, most identifiable player in professional golf.

“I think a lot of golf fans out there identify with us better than they do with the players today on the regular tour,” Geiberger said. “We have guys out here who were the big names in golf not that long ago. They’re names that people remember.”

Geiberger is part of the new generation of senior players. He joined the tour after turning 50 last September and promptly won his first tournament (the Vantage Championship). He finished the year with three victories and $264,798 in earnings.

He is considered one of the favorites in the PGA Seniors’ Championship at PGA National this week.

“During the first few years of the Senior Tour, I didn’t even think about it being there or that I might be playing on it one day,” Geiberger said.

The majority of tournaments have corporate sponsors, and major network television coverage has expanded to eight events for this season. As many as 13 events will be on cable.

The tour’s poplularity has grown dramatically, right along with the competition.

Once viewed as a laid-back get together among old golfing buddies, the Senior Tour has become intense and highly competitive.

And winning becomes more difficult each year as more regular tour players turn 50. Geiberger, Dave Hill and Bruce Devlin are now full-time players on the tour. Lou Graham, Phil Rodgers and Bert Yancey will become eligible during the 1988 season and Lee Trevino, Frank Beard and George Archer become eligible in 1989.

“It’s as tough to win out here as it was to win on the regular tour in the mid-1960s,” Geiberger said. “It’s a lot harder out here than it was a few years ago because there is so much depth on the tour now.”

Jack Nicklaus becomes eligible for the Senior Tour in January 1990. But he has stated he will not play on the tour.

“I think Jack will change his mind when the time comes,” Geiberger said. “The Senior Tour is a great way to keep your name in the public eye. When you’ve got as many other interests as Nicklaus does, it’s vital to keep your name in the public eye. No matter what you’ve done in the past, people can forget you quickly.

“I think it would be great for Jack and for golf if he comes out here. All of a sudden Jack’s back, and boom, there will be all kinds of interest. People would get excited about that.”

Rickie Fowler, 2017 winner © The Honda Classic

The Honda Classic is the PGA Tour’s Palm Beach area event on the schedule. This is the 17th  PGA Tour -sanctioned event of the 2021-2022 PGA Tour schedule. The event is part of the Florida Swing , which runs through the Sunshine State in March.

The Honda Classic became a PGA Tour event in 1972, known then as Jackie Gleason’s Inverrary Classic . It originally was associated with the actor and comedian, as events often were back in the day.

In recent memory, the tournament has been sort of hosted by Nicklaus, with hospitals and children’s charities bearing his name benefiting from the event. Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller , Mark Calcavecchia and Padraig Harrington are tied with the most wins in this event’s history, with two each.

The Honda Classic format

The Honda Classic is played over four days, and there is a cut for the qualifying field. The field of 144 is reduced to the top 65 players and ties for the final two rounds of the event. At the end of the 72-hole event, the lowest score wins. All players who finish four rounds of the tournament will earn money.
