Connors was winning tournaments as late as 1989 when he was 37. What really derailed him was in early 1990 when his wrist blew out. He pretty much lost the entire year, eventually getting surgery and then rehabbing for his 1991 "comeback"...no events won, but some pretty gripping matches at the FO and USO that year from him, no question.
