It will always be the Bob Hope to me

The third round of what has been called the Careerbuilder Challenge for the past 10 years is under way. But I’m beginning to feel like a dinosaur… I can only think of these famous tournaments as how they were called when I first started in golf. it made it all the more glamorous that these tournaments had the names of famous entertainers in front of them. The tournament at Pebble Beach was the Bing Crosby, Glenn Campbell had the Los Angeles Open, Sammy Davis Jnr had the Greater Hartford Open and the most showbizzy of all was the Bob Hope Desert Classic the film above celebrates. The current PGA tournaments have some hideous names, thanks to the need for millions of tournaments invested by sponsors, the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Farmers Insurance Open being amongst the least glamorous. One tournament name which I think will never change will be the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but that to me will always be Bay Hill, just to be awkward.
