Grab a spot in sight of a leaderboard and hold on to your hat for Sunday’s final round of the U.S. Senior Open at Del Paso Country Club. Bernhard Langer and Jeff Maggert share the lead, but there are 10 players within one shot of the top and 16 within two. “If you love golf ... this is what it’s all about, a lot of good players with a chance to win,” says Grant Waite, one of eight players a shot behind in second.
The 16th, 17th and 18th holes at Del Paso Country Club have been among the course’s most difficult this week. Those holes should add to the drama of what could be a bunched finish for Sunday’s final round.
