ABOUT THE U.S. Senior Open

The U.S. Senior Open is one of 13 national championships conducted by the USGA. Open to amateurs and professionals who have reached their 50th birthday as of the first day of the championship.

The Senior Open was first played in 1980 with a purse of, get this, just $100,000. Roberto Vincenzo of Argentina was the inaugural champion (winning $20,000), and Arnold Palmer was a popular winner the following year in 1981 at Oakland Hills. The purse has since grown to almost $4 million with the winner taking $675,000.
