Final Results and comments on the Senior Open

Some days you just don’t have it with the putter, today was that day. The good news is that I played well enough to secure the low amateur honors and the Silver Metal from the R&A. It was another special day that I won’t soon forget!!

The galleries here were amazing, they know and love their golf. I was treated like a touring pro, that was a real treat for the week. I actually rode the range shuttle the last to days with Bernhard Langer, we chatted and he actually though we were playing together today (he got Lehman instead). Today was the usual reminder why I don’t play the game for pay, the pressure was immense, and the heat was on. I struggled at times with my tee shots, and certainly the putter which resulted in a ZERO birdie day for me. But who’s complaining, I’ve got my second silver metal and I’m off to Toledo Ohio for the US Senior Open tomorrow.

My friend Russ Cochran ran the table for his second 67 on the weekend and won by two. I spend a good half hour on the practice green with Russ on Friday eve chatting about life and golf. The -10 over the weekend is very impressive and I think Russ will do well next week at the US Open.

Below I’ve attached many pictures that were taken at this years Senior Open that were shared with me.

And maybe most importantly my good friend and pal Reiner Binsfeld that flew to the UK to caddie for me in this event and in next weeks Senior US Open, I can’t thank him enough for his support as my ace caddie, it wouldn’t be as much fun without him!!!

Stay tuned for the US Senior Open from Inverness
