John Elway has been named honorary chairman of the 39th U.S. Senior Open golf tournament that will be played at The Broadmoor Golf Club’s East Course June 28-July 1 2018.
“I’m very proud and excited to be named honorary chairman,” Elway said in a statement. “The Broadmoor has been such a big part of Colorado golf history and a longtime supporter of the game. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed playing the East Course and have so many memories.”
Elway has played in the two Colorado Senior Opens and is part president of Cherry Hills Country Club, which has hosted the U.S. Open three times.
In his honorary role, Elway will support the eighth USGA championship to be played at The Broadmoor, and the sixth at the East Course. The Senior Open is for golfers 50 and older and is open to professionals and amateurs.
