Welcome to the 2011 USGA Senior Amateur Championship, being conducted at the sunny, but soggy, Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va. As anyone who lives along the East Coast knows well, the past few weeks have been very interesting, with an earthquake, hurricane and tropical storm to deal with. The past two storms alone have dropped nearly 12 inches of rain in the greater Richmond area. The grounds crew at Kinloch and the USGA staff have worked incredibly hard to get this course into playable conditions, and under today's sunny skies, the pristine course looks to be in fine condition. Michael Trostel and I will be here all week, bringing you stories and information about the 156 players gathered here at Kinloch to compete for this national championship.
