The 27th annual Washington State Senior Men’s Amateur Championship and the sixth annual Super Senior Men’s Amateur Championship both tee off this morning at Everett Golf &Country Club.

The two tournaments will be held concurrently over 54 holes of stroke play.

Among the players competing in the senior amateur is two-time defending champion Tom Brandes of Bellevue. Last year, Brandes swept the region’s championships. In addition to the senior amateur, he won the Washington State Men’s Mid-Amateur, the PNGA Men’s Mid-Amateur, the PNGA Men’s Senior Amateur and the Washington State Senior Men’s Champion of Champions. Also in the field is Bob Burton of Everett, the 2009 Washington State Golf Association Senior Men’s Player of the Year.

In the Super Senior Men’s Amateur Championship, Ron Petersen of Coquitlam, B.C. returns in search of his third straight title. The field also includes Jeff Remington of Edmonds, who won the Washington State Senior Men’s Amateur Championship in 2003.

Amateur golfers who have reached their 55th birthday and who have a USGA Handicap Index of 12.4 strokes or lower at a WSGA member club are eligible to play in the senior men’s championship.

To be eligible for the super senior, golfers must meet the same handicap requirements and be at least 65 years of age.
