US Senior Open Golf
Allen Doyle became the oldest U.S. Senior Open Champion in 2006, winning two weeks before his 58th birthday.
In 2011, the prize fund was $2.6 million, with $500,000 awarded to the champion, Olin Browne. The total purse was the highest of any senior tour event until the Posco E&C Songdo Championship, a new and since-discontinued Champions Tour event held in South Korea, launched in 2010 with a $3 million purse. However, the first prize in the U.S. Senior Open remains the highest on the Champions Tour. In 2012, the prize fund increased to $2.75 million, with winner Roger Chapman earning $500,000. Like other senior majors, players must walk the course unless they receive a medical exemption to use a cart. Winners gain entry into the following year's U.S. Open.
