SENIOR MOMENT: GOLF WORLD's Bill Fields notes the total attendance for the U.S. Senior Open at Omaha Country Club last week "wasn't quite the equal of Des Moines -- 157,126 for three practice rounds and four days of competition -- but more than 30,000 people were on hand each of the final two rounds and 8,000 showed up on Monday." Moreover, thanks in part to the "presence of five Fortune 500 companies in Nebraska's largest city, the USGA set a Senior Open record for corporate hospitality with sales of" $5.6M. There were "more than 3,000 volunteers, the list to help having been closed nine months prior to the event" (GOLF WORLD, 7/22 issue).
