Is John Elway nervous about traveling to Colorado Springs May 28 to try to qualify for the Senior Open?
We asked Elway this question last Friday at Dove Valley. Elway was there to welcome Case Keenum to Colorado.
“No,” he said quickly before adding a laugh. “I have nothing to lose.”
Elway will be trying to qualifying at The Broadmoor’s East Course. He said he has traveled to play at the East Course “not very often.” Elway played the East Course once with Peyton Manning.
“I’ve never played it very well,” he said.
“The greens,” he answered. “I think I had 42 putts the last time I was down there.”
He laughed again, but it was not a happy laugh. Those greens, he said, are unpredictable and unforgiving.
Elway, 57, is scheduled to compete in the Open’s sectional qualifying May 28. The Senior Open is scheduled for June 28-July 1, 2018 at The Broadmoor’s East Course.
