LIVE SCORING: U.S. Senior Open underway at Saucon Valley
Open season continues.

Just a week after the amazing finish at The Country Club, Pennsylvania's Saucon Valley Country Club will host the game's best "over-50" pros and amateurs. With four of the 15 amateurs making the cut at Brookline last weekend, the senior ams are going to have their work cut out for them as they compete against the likes of Scott McCarron, Steve Stricker, and even David Duval.

Defending champion Jim Furyk is the man to beat, and in a unique pairing, the USGA has him going off alongside Steven Dodd of Wales, and the No. 2-ranked amateur in the world, Gene Elliott.

Good luck to our longtime member and friend Gene Elliott and all the rest of the ams in the field. AmateurGolf.com will be following them all week.

If this playoff results in a tie, the tied players will immediately continue to play off hole-by-hole until the winner is determined.

ABOUT THE U.S. Senior Open

The U.S. Senior Open is one of 14 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.
