SENIORS OPEN AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP – 6TH TO 9TH AUGUST 2014
144 competitors play 36 holes on the Wednesday and Thursday, after which the leading 60 players and ties play a further 18 holes on the Friday.
The Seniors Open Amateur Championship was launched by The R&A in 1969 to help select a Great Britain & Ireland side to play in the World Senior Amateur Team Championship run by the World Amateur Golf Council. While the Seniors, played for the first time at Formby, was an instant success, the team event did not survive beyond 1969. Charlie Green has been the most successful player in the history of the event, winning six times in seven years from 1988.
