John Elway will attempt to qualify for the Colorado Springs-hosted U.S. Senior Open on Memorial Day, teeing off at 10:10 a.m. at The Broadmoor’s East Course.

The Denver Broncos general manager and Hall of Fame quarterback, 57, will be among 84 hopefuls attempting to get one of two qualifying spots on Monday.

It's open to the public and free of charge (free tickets available here).

This is only the fourth time that a U.S. Senior Open site will also host sectional qualifying. There are 34 qualifying sites around the nation.

Colorado Springs residents Robert Athey, David Delich, Michael Dominguez, Gregg Jones, Mike Northern and John Olive will also be in the field with Elway at The Broadmoor.

Don Dooley in 2002 is the only player to win the U.S. Senior Open after qualifying through sectional play.

Olive, of The Broadmoor Golf Club, edged three-time Colorado Golf Association Senior Player of the Year Robert Polk of Colorado Golf Club, 1 up, on Tuesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the CGA Super-Senior Match Play Championship at Black Bear Golf Club in Parker.
