Dana Quigley's 8 year streak to end

For the first time in eight years, Dana Quigley will be doing something different during a Champions Tour event -- watching on television.

A nagging hip injury and travel delays caused by weather forced Quigley to abandon hopes of playing this week in the Senior British Open, ending his streak of playing every tournament on the 50-and-older schedule at 264 in a row.

The eight-year streak dates to August 1997 at the Bank of America Championship in Massachusetts and went through the Senior Players Championship two weeks ago in Michigan, where Quigley played despite his hip injury and tied for fifth. He currently leads the money list on the Champions Tour.

``I can't tell you how much I hate not going, but the decision has been made,'' Quigley said. ``The streak has meant a lot to me. I enjoy being known as the ``Iron Man.'' I've been astounded by how many people know about the streak and seem to care about it.''

Quigley told tour officials Monday that he would not go to Royal Aberdeen because of storms on the East Coast that kept him from leaving Rhode Island for Scotland and the British Open.

He said he would seek treatment for his hip in West Palm Beach, Fla., this week, then start a new streak the following week in Ohio at the U.S. Senior Open.
