It’s Tuesday of U.S. Senior Open week. The weather is perfect, the players are making their practice rounds and the crowds are enjoying the action.
From the Rules of Golf perspective, we have the hazards on the course marked, the hole locations selected and our Rules Committee is starting to arrive to get their first look at Sahalee Country Club.
We have many committee members from across the country and around the world. Tai Kawata of the Japan Golf Association has probably traveled the farthest to volunteer his time as an invited official. Other invited officials include representatives from the Royal Canadian Golf Association and the Mexican Golf Federation along with the Champions Tour staff. In all, we have 67 officials here assisting.
On Wednesday afternoon, we’ll meet with all of our officials to go over the championship and some Rules items as they pertain to the golf course such as the grandstands and television towers which we refer to as Temporary Immovable Obstructions.
The excitement is building in the air and we should have a great U.S. Senior Open Championship in the Pacific Northwest. – Wendy Uzelac
