| ||This week marks the first of two consecutive majors for the Champions Tour.
At last year`s Senior British Open, Loren Roberts hit the fairway and green
on three consecutive playoff holes and made par at the third to knock off
Mark McNulty to win his 10th Champions Tour title and fourth senior major.
Fred Funk, who set two scoring records during the week, also made the playoff
but was eliminated on the first hole when he was the only one who didn`t make
a birdie. Roberts captured his second Senior British title in four years. He
will be joined in the field this week at Carnoustie by some other recent
champions, including three-time winner Tom Watson, Bruce Vaughan and Pete
Oakley. ESPN will have coverage of all four rounds this week beginning at 12
p.m. (et) the first two days, at 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Next week is the third major of the season, the U.S. Senior Open, which was
won by Funk last year. Tom Lehman won the season`s first major, the Senior
PGA Championship, in a playoff over Fred Couples and David Frost.
