So now we have the ideal spring itinerary for Broncos boss John Elway.
Lure a stud quarterback to Colorado.
Nail the Broncos' 10 selections the NFL draft.
Qualify for the U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor.
Elway already was the honorary chairman for the U.S. Senior Open that will unfold on the fabled East Course from June 28-July 1. Now the 57-year-old (players must be 50-plus to play in the Senior Open) is scheduled to compete in sectional qualifying on May 28. Elway filed his entry Wednesday morning.
Eligible players must have a USGA handicap index of 4 or below. Elway's played in a pair of Colorado Senior Opens and is a past president of Cherry Hills Country Club. Hopefully his short game's in shape; it's shaping into a banner spring for No. 7.
