Have the majors lost their lustre?
Mon, May 14, 2007

Tradition, outstanding golf courses, a star quality to the fields and a big purse are factors that once defined a major, but these days, there are a lot of events that fill many of those prerequisites. It's easier now to figure out what isn't than what is a major.

The Canadian Open -- with its difficult date, no title sponsor and forecasted mediocre field in 2007 -- is definitely not a major, even though it was considered close to that status at one time. While much has been written about the plight of such tournaments, the top of the heap is becoming generic, too.

Sheesh! Just because a big name doesn't win the Masters, we start lamenting the decline of Majors! Get a grip! Certainly, the Canadian Open is on the decline, but it never was a major to start with. Being "close" to a major doesn't count (unlike horseshoes and hand grenades). If anything, with the advent of high definition television, the majors are even BETTER than what they once were. What big names are missing them?
