61-year-old to play for college golf team

Most of us would probably also be eligible in a similar vein. Dare to dream my friends, who knows maybe someday you too can make a mockery of collegiate sports, higher education, and you know, the overall spirit of competition. :lolz

Don Byers has already heard all the cinematic comparisons. About how his story is part-"Old School," part-"Caddyshack," and a whole lot of "Back to School."

He insists, though, that there's at least one minor difference between himself and the Rodney Dangerfield character from that last cult classic who left the business world to return to college and perform the triple lindy.

"I'm not a diver," he deadpans, then offers his infectious laugh.

Byers is a golfer -- and this spring, the 61-year-old will be a collegiate golfer, competing alongside teammates four decades younger than him at Bellevue University in Nebraska...

This is my new goal in life. Play collegiate golf when I retire.

I think your Titleist affiliations would make you ineligible and put your new school on probation.
I will stand in the fairway, I want to be out of your range.

No, it's my lack of ability that would make me ineligible! :facepalm
