At 72, Dale Douglass of Castle Rock is the elder statesman of the field at the 29th U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs this week.

He won the tournament in 1986 in his first try just four months after turning 50, the minimum age for the senior circuit.

Douglass joked that he was hoping Gary Player would be at the tournament this year as the oldest player. Douglass is four months younger than Player.

Douglass first played The Broadmoor at the 1959 U.S. Amateur championship that launched Jack Nicklaus's career. He is playing in his 23rd Senior Open, two shy of Arnold Palmer's mark.
