The Bee highlights 22 golfers who are scheduled to play in the 2015 U.S. Senior Open at Del Paso Country Club on June 25-28 in Sacramento.
Irwin, who has his own course design business, completed his 20th season as a Champions Tour member last year, one in which he recorded his 210th career top-10 finish.
At last year’s 3M Championship, Irwin bettered his age in all three rounds (68-66-68). He was the first to accomplish the feat since Gary Player in 2009.
