The Bee highlights 22 golfers that are scheduled to play in the 2015 U.S. Senior Open at Del Paso Country Club on June 25-28 in Sacramento.

Olin Browne is looking to regain form from earlier in the season, when he placed in the top 10 in four of the first six tournaments – plus one 11th-place finish – capped by a victory in the rain-shortened Greater Gwinnett Championship in April.

Browne’s only other Champions Tour victory was the 2011 U.S. Senior Open Championship in which he beat Mark O’Meara by three strokes at the Inverness Club.
