Not sure if the wikipedia notice of his death was an intentional or unintentional pun as he reportedly died of complications from a stroke.

The upcoming Open Championship and the announcement of Seves long overdue retirement led me to wonder what old golfers are still out on the course but trudging towards the great clubhouse in the sky. The DL has a half decent record with golfers in past years (Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson) and while most of the games legends are either gone or not old enough (Nicklaus, Palmer, Player), there are currently, to the best of my knowledge, just 7 men who have won a Major still alive at 80+. No idea how their health is, but step forward:

Tommy Bolt, 89
Kel Nagle, 86
Doug Ford, 85
Jack Fleck, 85
Jack Burke, 84
Roberto de Vicenzo, 84
Bob Rosberg, 80

None would be famous enough for the DL, but might be a consideration for other pools.

Now now, don't all run at once to get involved in such a blockbuster of a thread...

Kel Nagle finally in his own hole in the ground.. http://www.theguardi...er-dies-aged-94
