US Senior Open Golf

 The U.S. Senior Open is one of the major championships in men's senior golf. It was first played in 1980 and is administered by the United States Golf Association and is recognized as a major championship by both the Champions Tour and the European Seniors Tour. Initially the lower age limit was 55, but it is now 50, which is the standard limit for men's senior professional golf tournaments. The event is open to amateurs but it is dominated by professionals. It has been played on several different courses.

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.
