Six Canadians To Compete For 39th U.S. Senior Open Championship Including BC's Jonas, Yonomoto and Ames

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 23, 2018) – The United States Golf Association (USGA) today announced tee times for the first two rounds of the 2018 U.S. Senior Open Championship, Thursday (June 28) and Friday (June 29), at 7,264-yard, par-70 The Broadmoor (East Course).

The U.S. Senior Open is a 72-hole, stroke-play competition. A field of 156 players will play 18 holes of stroke play on June 28 and 29, after which the field will be reduced to the low 60 scores and ties. This year's field includes a total of six players from Canada including BC's Phil Jonas, Kendal Yonomoto and Stephen Ames.

Those players making the cut will play 18 holes on June 30 and July 1. If there is a tie upon the completion of 72 holes, a two-hole aggregate playoff will immediately follow. If this playoff results in a tie, the tied players will immediately continue to play off hole-by-hole until the winner is determined.
