Because, to them, it's not work....it's their life blood! Basically, if they retired, they'd just get bored and fade away!
I'm a decided Parrot Head (Jimmy Buffett fan) who is 74, worth at least $600M and has been touring to arena crowds all year - playing 4 or 5 shows every 2nd or 3rd day in each month. Plus a 10 day trip to Antarctica in support of one of his favourite 'projects'...ocean conservation. Seriously into Golf too!
My dad was in charge of the Champions Locker room at Muirfield when Faldo won.
He really did not have much time for the guy before then.
He left the Jug with my dad after the main presentation then came back after about 20 minutes in a real panic as he had forgotten where he put it down.
They sat down for 5 minutes, just the two of them [three if you include the jug]. They went through the names and had a good old heart to heart.
Meant such a lot for Faldo to win that Championship.
When I'm knighted, I absolutely won't be using the "sir" in public. Every time Jim Nantz exudes it, I cringe inside.
I've huge respect for his golfing achievements, but I find that his commentary is often rambling and incoherent. The odd nugget here and there, but Johny Miller he ain't. I see a lot of the US telecasts, so I suspect I've listened to more of them than is good for me.
