2014 U.S. Senior Open Golf PGA Tour
The long and storied history of the PGA
Tour dates all the way back to 1929, although it was not until 1968, after a dispute over the division of ever increasing
revenue as a result of television contracts, that it split from the PGA to deal only with tour players instead of additionally
working as an organization for club professionals. The U.S. Senior Open was originally open only to golfers 55 and over, but
it is currently open to all golfers over 50. As with all other senior PGA events golfers have to walk the course unless they
are given a medical exemption to ride in a cart. Amateurs are able to qualify for the event, but it is mostly made up of professionals.
The U.S. Senior Open annually offers one of the biggest purses on the senior tour and is one of the most prestigious events
in all of golf. StubHub is the place to go to get tickets to all of the best golf tournaments in the world including the U.S.

Nicklaus, Billy Caper, Gary Player, Miller Barber, Allen Doyle, and many more. All of the best golfers in the history of the
sport feel that the U.S. Senior Open is one of the most important stops on the tour and you will see exactly why upon entering
Oak Tree National on the day of the event. Each and every golfer participating in the U.S. Senior Open is looking to play

Of course it can be fun and relaxing to watch golf on your nice flatscreen television
back at home, but you cannot really get a feel for the action or an understanding of the elements against which the golfers
are battling unless you are out there on the links. Spending a lovely summer day outside walking a beautiful course and seeing
the best golfers in the world battle one another is an experience you will never forget and one which will likely have you
wanting to never have to settle for watching from your couch again. As the days and holes wear on, the drama builds and each
stroke becomes more and more vital. The nervous tension in the air builds and this can be felt both by the golfers swinging
their clubs and the fans following them from hole to hole holding their breath with each approach to the ball.
first winner of the U.S. Senior Open was Roberto De Vicenzo from Argentina who won the event at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck,
New York in 1980. The oldest winner was Allen Doyle who won the tournament two weeks prior to turning 58 in 2006. Miller Barber
has won the U.S. Senior Open the most times, having won the tournament three times, while four other golfers have won the
tournament twice: Jack Nicklaus, Allen Doyle, Hale Irwin, and Gary Player.
