US Senior Open Round 4
It's going to be a great finale to the US Senior Open today.
The last threesome is Kansan and leader Tom Watson, last year's US Senior Open champion Allen Doyle, and Loren Roberts, who yesterday shot 62--a record for any USGA event.
Yesterday during the third round, my Dad and I sat in the first row of the bleachers at the #1 tee and watched each one begin their round. When Watson appeared on the tee, the crowd roared with excitement. You could feel the electricity for the home state favorite.
It may come down to #18 (pictured above) to determine the winner. It's only 390 yards, but it requires a precise iron to a plateaued, unjulated green.
