James and Smyth Spearhead European Challenge in the US Senior Open
Mark James of England, the last European to win a Senior Major Championship, and Des Smyth, the Irishman who went closest to repeating the feat, will spearhead the European Seniors Tour challenge in the 27th US Senior Open Championship at Prairie Dunes Country Club, Hutchinson, Kansas. James registered the biggest success of his Senior career when he won the Ford Seniors Players’ Championship in 2004 – one of his two titles on the US Champions Tour – while Smyth lost in a play-off by Tom Watson at last year’s Senior British Open Championship, presented by Aberdeen Asset Management.
