Sahalee Country Club in Seattle hosts the US Senior Open for the first time a week after The Senior Open Championship presented by MasterCard. Last year American Fred Funk produced a sensational final round 65 to finish six shots clear of Joey Sindelar. It came after he lost in a play-off to Loren Robers in The Senior Open Championship at Sunningdale. Sahalee Country Club hosted the 1998 US PGA Championship when Vijay Singh captured the title, one stroke clear of Steve Stricker. Previous winners include Gary Player, Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus.
