The oldies were mostly goodies on the PGA Tour in 2003, while the young guns that were so highly touted in 2002 fired a few blanks.
Eleven players 40 or older earned victories last season, compared to just six 20-somethings. Additionally, six 40-somethings made the top 20 on the money list, while just three players in their 20s found their way into that club.
How the kids measure up to the gray-hairs in 2004 will be a theme to watch in the upcoming season. We've broken down the key players from both camps in our Gen X and Geriatric all-star squads, along with the progress they've made over the last couple years and what we see in our 2004 crystal ball.
Disagree with our All-20-something and All-40-something teams? Think we left someone out? Let us know.
