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 at Northern Ireland’s Royal County Down from 5-7 August, 2015.
Last year Brady Exber, a 58-year-old from Las Vegas, emerged victorious to become the fifth successive American Champion and to extend a remarkable sequence that has seen the trophy won by an American player in 14 out of the last 19 years.
Royal County Down is widely regarded as one of Great Britain and Ireland’s finest tests of golf and it was voted fourth on Golf Digest’s 2014 list of the World’s Top 100 Courses. It staged the Senior British Open from 2000 to 2002 and the Walker Cup in 2007, and is the venue for the 2015 Irish Open hosted by The Rory Foundation.
American Brady Exber, one ahead at the start of the final round, overcame challenging conditions to pull away from the field and win the 2014 Seniors Amateur Championship at Ganton in North Yorkshire.
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.
