It was Veterans Day Friday at the CN Canadian Women’s Open.

Well, not officially.

Every day on the tour is Kid’s Day in today’s era of women’s golf.

There’s all sorts of young girls barely old enough to shave their legs who are ripping it up on the LPGA Tour these days.

Kids like Lydia Ko of New Zealand, who became the youngest player to ever win a LPGA tournament at the event in Vancouver last year at age 15. And 17-year-old Charlie Hull of England who became the latest sensation of her nation with her performance at the Solheim Cup,

But yesterday was a day for the 50-something, 40-something and 30-something set, a.k.a. the golfers you’d heard of the last time the tournament was here in 2007.

And as Gordie Howe used to say when he was having a good stretch playing with his sons in the WHA, a lot of the tour veterans were feeling “frisky” at the Royal Mayfair on Day 2 of the event.
