The Seniors Amateur Championship
America’s leading Senior golfers will be bidding to maintain their stranglehold over The Seniors Amateur Championship when it is staged for the first time at Ganton on August 6-8, 2014.
Last year George Zahringer, a 60 year-old from New York, emerged victorious to become the fourth successive American Champion and to extend a remarkable sequence that has seen the trophy won by an American player in 13 out of the last 18 years.
Ganton is widely regarded as one of GB&I’s finest tests of golf and in the past it has staged The Amateur Championship, the British Ladies Championship, the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup, the Jacques Leglise Trophy as well as numerous English national Championships.

The 58-year-old from Las Vegas closed with a 78 for a four-shot victory over Yorkshire’s Stephen East who finished on 228 after a 79.Three players shared third – Americans Michael Mercier and John McClure and England’s Tony McLure.
