Maz said:Excuse my ignorance, but how come this was such a shock? Snooker isn't exactly a strength or stamina sport. Davis has won the snooker championship many times before. If anything, with time and experience, shouldn't he be more relaxed and play his natural game?
Not trying to be agumentative, just curious.

Greedo said:I kind of see what you're saying, but the thing with snooker is it's not that physical. Where golf is far more physical and the older you get the less supple you are. Even when I was younger than my 37 years I always felt tired after a round of golf so god knows how tired the older golfers get.
