RI’s Faxon to call US Senior Open
The Rhode Island native is still playing on the champions tour part-time, but he is preparing to be a part of the Fox Broadcast of the US Senior Open in Peabody.
"It's really exciting, you know, having grown up in New England and knowing how big of a course Salem is in the history New England golf," he said.
The event will also feature Brad's good friend and CVS co-host Billy Andrade.
"I think he'd be a guy that will be on anybody's top five list for favorites,” Faxon said of Andrade. “After 19 years, one of us finally won the CVS Health Charity Classic. He teamed up to win that last Monday and he's been on a roll where he's playing well, it seems, like every single week.”
The US Senior Open will be heading to Rhode Island in 2020 at Newport Country Club.
"Newport Country Club was one of the founding clubs in America back in 1895,” Faxon said. “It held the first US open, the first US amateur.”
This year’s event from Salem Country Club will tee off on Thursday.
