The U.S. needed only a 1 1/2 points in the eight singles Sunday to retain the Cup, but two to win it outright.  continue>>

Liu becomes youngest USJA champ

Jim Liu rallied from an early deficit.
Ada, MI (Sports Network) - Jim Liu earned a 4 & 2 victory over Justin Thomas on Saturday to become the youngest winner in the history of the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship.

The 14-year-old from Smithtown, N.Y., beat Tiger Woods' record to become the youngest winner in championship history.

Woods, who won three straight U.S. Juniors from 1991-93, set the previous mark at 15 years, six months and 28 days when he captured his first championship. Liu doesn't turn 15 until the middle of August.  continue>>

Fred Funk
Last Week's Pick to Win
(Dan Forsman) - Finished tied for 18th
Last Week's Darkhorse
(Fred Funk) - Finished tied for 3rd

The third major of the Champions Tour season, the U.S. Senior Open Championship takes center stage this week, as Fred Funk defends his title in the 31st installment of this storied event. A stellar field is scheduled to battle the beautiful Sahalee Country Club in Washington, as 37 of the top-40 on the money list are expected to compete.

Tom Lehman captured the first major of the season, the Senior PGA Championship and Bernhard Langer won last week at the Senior British Open.

Sahalee Country Club played host to the 1998 PGA Championship won by Vijay Singh and the 2002 WGC - NEC Invitational captured by Craig Parry. Funk might have the upperhand this week, as he tied for second in 2002 with four consecutive rounds of 68.

This will be the 22nd USGA championship to be conducted in the state of Washington. It last welcomed the 2007 U.S. Girls' Junior at Tacoma Country & Golf Club in Lakewood. The 2010 U.S. Amateur will be staged at Chambers Bay in University Place at the end of August.

Last year, Funk blitzed the field, defeating Joey Sindelar by six strokes en route to a record-setting performance. His total of 20-under-par 268 was the lowest total in relation to par in the history of the championship. Funk, the only player in the field to post four rounds in the 60s, closed with a 65 for his first USGA title in his third Senior Open appearance. Amateur Tim Jackson made plenty of headlines earlier in the week, as he opened with rounds of 66-67 to take the lead, however he faded to tie for 11th with weekend rounds of 73-76.

Not only did Funk dominate the field, but he mastered the Crooked Stick Golf Club, making 24 birdies, hitting 47 of 56 fairways and finishing second in greens in regulation (55-of-72). With a one-shot lead heading into the final round over Greg Norman and Sindelar, Funk steadily pulled away as he posted a bogey-free round. Crooked Stick played to 7,316 yards, making it the longest course in Senior Open history.

In 2008, Eduardo Romero, playing in just his second Senior Open, defeated Funk by four shots to become just the second Argentine winner of the championship, joining Robert De Vicenzo (1980). Playing on now the second longest course in championship history (7,254 yards) on the Broadmoor Resort's East Course, Romero shot rounds of 67-69-65-73. Leading by two heading into the final round, Romero increased his lead to three by the time the duo reached the 11th hole. Despite four straight bogeys, Romero's lead swelled to four, as Funk struggled, including a devastating triple-bogey on 13. Romero parred his final four holes for the win. Romero led the field in birdies (17) for the week and in greens in regulation (55 of 72). Mark McNulty, who finished third, was the only player in the field without a three-putt.

Brad Bryant fired a four-under 68 in the final round in 2007 to win the U.S. Senior Open, as third-round leader Tom Watson collapsed on the back nine. Bryant collected his first major championship win, as he finished at six-under-par 282. Bryant, who trailed by five strokes at the beginning of the final round, notched the second biggest final-round comeback in U.S. Senior Open history. Allen Doyle closed with an eight-under 63 in 2005 to overtake D.A. Weibring and Loren Roberts for a one-stroke win. Watson got to nine-under with a birdie on the par-four 10th, but dropped six strokes over the next five holes. Watson posted a seven-over 43 on the back nine en route to a six-over 78 at Whistling Straits that left him alone in fourth at one-under-par 287.

Allen Doyle shot four rounds in the 60s back in 2006, including a 68 in the final round to come from three shots back to successfully defend his title at the U.S. Senior Open at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Kansas. Doyle edged hometown favorite Tom Watson by two shots for his 11th Champions Tour title and fourth major championship, finishing at eight-under-par 272 to become the third repeat champion in tournament history, joining Gary Player (1987-88) and Miller Barber (1984-85). Doyle also became the oldest winner in tournament history at 57 years, 11 months and 17 days. Roberto DeVicenzo previously held the record at 57 years, two months and 15 days.

In 2004, Peter Jacobsen posted a three-under 68 in the final round to win his first career major, and his first Champions Tour event, at the U.S. Senior Open. Jacobsen finished the event at 12-under-par 272, one shot clear of Hale Irwin. Jacobsen became a major champion in only his third start on the elder circuit and just three months after undergoing hip surgery. Jacobsen became the seventh player to win the Senior Open on his first try. Other players to accomplish the feat are: DeVicenzo (1980), Arnold Palmer (1981), Dale Douglass (1986), Lee Trevino (1990), Larry Laoretti (1992) and Don Pooley (2002).

Douglass will be the oldest player in the field at the age of 74 and will tie Arnold Palmer for the most appearances at the U.S. Senior Open with his 25th consecutive start. Douglass has made the cut 14 times with three top-five finishes.

The 2002 Senior Open produced one of the most exciting tournaments in event history, as Pooley outlasted Tom Watson in a playoff to capture his first over-50 title. Pooley became the first Senior Open champion to make the field and win after going through sectional qualifying.

When Bruce Fleisher captured the 2001 title, he joined Palmer and Nicklaus as the only players in history to win the U.S. Senior Open and the U.S. Amateur. Fleisher's 33 years between USGA championships betters a record previously held by Marlene Streit of 29 years.

In his 14 appearances at the Senior Open, Hale Irwin has two wins, two seconds, a third, two fifths and has finished outside the top 25 only four times. Irwin finished tied for 32nd in 2006 and 2009, missed the cut in 2007, and tied for 40th in 2008. Not surprisingly, Irwin is the all-time leading money winner at this event with $1,406,030 in earnings. Doyle is second with $1,326,767.

There are seven players who have won both the U.S. Senior Open and the U.S. Open: Orville Moody, Gary Player, Billy Casper, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Irwin.

Since 1990, player(s) leading or co-leading the U.S. Senior Open after the third round have gone on to win the championship 10 times, including each of the last two years. Allen Doyle's comeback from nine strokes in 2005 is the best come-from-behind win in U.S. Senior Open championship history. It is also the second-greatest comeback in any major championship. Paul Lawrie came from 10 strokes back to claim the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie.

The championship is played at stroke play over 72 holes. There are 156 players in the championship field, comprised of those advancing from sectional qualifying, and those exempt from sectional qualifying. After 36 holes, the field is cut to the 60 lowest scores and ties and anyone within 10 strokes of the leader. If a playoff is needed, the U.S. Senior Open will use a multiple-hole, aggregate score format. A three-hole playoff will follow immediately. If the playoff results in a tie, play will continue hole-by-hole until a champion is determined. There have only been five playoffs in U.S. Senior Open history. Since 1990, the player who has held the third-round lead has gone on to win the event nine times, including a string from 1992-1997 and last year.

Player, Tom Weiskopf, Doyle and now Funk are the only players to post four consecutive rounds in the 60s and win -- Player in 1987, Weiskopf in 1995, Doyle in 2006 and Funk last year.

Miller Barber has won more U.S. Senior Open titles than any other player (three). Barber was victorious at the Portland (OR) Golf Club in 1982, Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY in 1984 and at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club in Stateline, NV in 1985.

Foreign-born players have captured the U.S. Senior Open a total of six times. South African Player was a two-time winner (1987-88), while Argentina's DeVicenzo (1980) and Romero (2008), South Africa's Simon Hobday (1994) and Australia's Graham Marsh (1997) each won it once.

The first U.S. Senior Open in 1980 was originally for golfers 55 and older. The age minimum was lowered to 50 in 1981, and Champions Tour "rookie" Palmer won the event at Oakland Hills Country Club in Michigan.

First played in 1980, this is the 31st U.S. Senior Open Championship. A total of 24 players have won the first 30 championships. Twenty-eight clubs have hosted the championship with Oakland Hills Country Club in Birmingham Hills, Mich., and Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pa., having served twice as a Senior Open site. In 2009, the USGA accepted 2,794 entries. The record was 3,101 in 2002. The Senior Open is open to any professional or amateur with a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 3.4 who turns 50 on or before July 29, 2010. Entries closed on June 9.

Only two players have won the U.S. Senior Open after also claiming the Champions Tour event the week before. Marsh was the first to do it when he claimed the 1997 Nationwide Championship and then won the Senior Open at Olympia Fields Country Club near Chicago. In 1998, Irwin won the Ameritech Senior Open and then claimed the Senior Open near Los Angeles at Riviera Country Club.

The Champions Tour moves to Minnesota next week for the 3M Championship, where Bernhard Langer is the defending champion.
