NOTES
A week after the 140th British Open, the seniors take their turn at the same event in the 25th Senior Open Championship at Walton Heath Golf Club. In its ninth year as an official Champions Tour event and the third major on the tour, the Senior Open Championship has an impressive list of former champions, including defending champ Bernhard Langer. Langer won the ACE Group Classic in February before undergoing thumb surgery that forced him out of action for about two months. Since his return at the Toshiba Classic, he`s missed the cut in two of his four events along with an 11th place finish at the Berenberg Bank Masters and a 28th place showing at the Toshiba Classic. Langer still boasts 14 Champions Tour victories, including two major wins in 2010. The favorite has to be Tom Watson, who has won this event three times since it became an official Champions Tour event in 2003. Watson has six senior major titles, including the Senior PGA Championship this year. He won the Senior British Open in 2003, 2005 and 2007 to add to his impressive five claret jugs. Other former champions in the field include Gary Player (1988, 1990, 1997) Loren Roberts (2006, 2009), Bruce Vaughan (2008), Pete Oakley (2004), Noboru Sugai (2002), Christy O`Connor, Jr. (1999, 2000). This is the first time the tournament is being played at Walton Heath Golf Club, which served as the host for the 1981 Ryder Cup. Next week the Champions Tour shifts back to the United States for the U.S. Senior Open, where Langer will defend the second of his two major titles.
