    Perry tells big stars to play more

    PGA Tour stalwart Kenny Perry has called out big stars Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson to play more - and increase the pot for everyone.

    "We've all been sitting around in the locker room, wondering what the future of the PGA Tour is going to be and what it's going to look like in five years," said Perry, 13 times PGA victor.

    "It's tough out there, and it's up to us to help promote it. We need upper-echelon guys to really step up. I know that sounds a little unfair to Tiger (Woods) and Phil (Mickelson), but those guys are going to have to step in and help us out."

    So let me get this straight - he wants the really talented and big name guys to help the just-plain-old-talented guys earn a whole lot more money via the additional exposure they bring? Finishing second behind Tiger could well be more lucrative than finishing first to a field of journeymen...
