Bellerive to host 2004 US Senior Open

The 2004 U.S. Senior Open Championship will be played at Bellerive Country Club.

The tournament will be played from July 29 to Aug. 1. Bellerive was the site of 1965 U.S. Open (won by Gary Player), the 1981 U.S. Mid-Amateur (won by Jim Holtgrieve), and the 1992 PGA Championship (won by Nick Price).

Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Jay Haas, and Lanny Wadkins are among the current touring pros who will be eligible for the U.S. Senior Open when it comes to Bellerive. Past champions include Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, and St. Louis native Hale Irwin.

Jerry Ritter, former chairman of the St. Louis Blues, was named general chairman of the tournament.

The Bellerive course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, and it plays 7,503 yards from the back tees.
