“Colorado Springs has been host to some of the most successful USGA championships in history,” said Russ Miller, director of golf. “We believe with the incredible field, the beautiful scenery and the Broadmoor Centennial milestone that the 2018 U.S. Senior Open will draw crowds larger than ever before on the East Course.”
