Wisconsin native Steve Stricker (2019) along with Jim Furyk (2021) and Padraig Harrington (2022) have won the previous three U.S. Senior Opens, each in his first appearance. Stricker’s six-stroke victory obliterated several championship records, including the 72-hole scoring mark (261). Furyk placed his name alongside some of golf’s greats when he became the eighth player to win both the U.S. Open and U.S. Senior Open. Harrington is the first player from the Republic of Ireland to hoist the Francis D. Ouimet Memorial Trophy.
SentryWorld, a public parkland course in central Wisconsin, was developed by Sentry Insurance in 1982 as part of a sports complex that includes indoor tennis courts, banquet space and restaurants. At the heart of the 200-acre property lies the championship layout, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. In 2013, Jones oversaw a major renovation that was led by architects Bruce Charlton and Jay Blasi.
The U.S. Senior Open Championship (www.ussenioropen.com) is for golfers age 50 and older and is open to any professional and any amateur with a Handicap Index® not exceeding 3.4.
