Why doesn't the PGA open this thing up to a real-life Rocky? This year's field would have been much more attractive with a guy like, say, Lance Ten Broeck (his name alone should earn him a chance), who is near the bottom of the Tour season money list at about $88,000, some $1.4 million behind Azinger. Or if you want a senior, why not a Lee Elder, who played in 25 events yet cashed only $75,761, instead of a Palmer, whose legend and bankroll are secure. Then it would really mean something when Vin Sculley said, as he did after Palmer narrowly missed an eight-foot birdie putt worth $60,000, "Golf is a cruel game."
