Every morning is an early morning for grounds keepers at the Broadmoor's East Course during the U.S. Senior Open.

Hundreds of thousands are expected to attend the tournament to watch legends of the game, but getting ready for event has been going on for months.

Headlights from a convoy of mowers lit the course early Thursday morning. Cutters, rakers and waterers can rely partially on those headlights, but mostly on their habit and memory in the dark.

The Broadmoor employs 95 workers to do the job. Those workers have only two hours every morning of the tournament before tee off to make sure the course looks perfect for such a huge event.

East Course Superintendent Michael Sartori says they have been out there with rulers and tape measurers to make sure all 18 holes are up to par.
