Golfweek is opening the door to the exclusive Forest Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida, for the top senior players in the nation. The Golfweek Senior Tournament of Champions will be played Dec. 2-4 on the Bear Course. The field features 96 of the nation’s top senior players 55 years of age and older, broken into four divisions: Seniors (55-64), Super Seniors (65-69), Legends (70-74) and Super Legends (75 and older).
The high-calibur field includes some of the game’s top senior amateurs, including Gene Elliott, the top-ranked senior player in the world. The Des Moines, Iowa, resident recently played in the inaugural East West Matches with some of the game’s best amateurs, and before that, captained the winning team at the Golfweek Senior Challenge Cup.
With only three Senior National Ranking tournaments left in 2020, each division is still up for grabs except the Super Legends where Walt Martin has locked up the first ever Super Legends National Trophy. The Senior National Rankings can be found here.
In the Senior Division, former Georgia state representative Allen Peake trails Craig Hurlbert of Magnolia, Texas, by 1,732.5 points. With 2,800 points still up for grabs in 2020, Peake needs to run the table to overtake Hurlbert.
In the Super Senior Division, Mark Fried of Solon, Ohio, leads John Armstrong of Frostburg, Maryland, by 349.2 points but with Fried sitting out the Senior TOC, there is a good chance Armstrong will take over the No. 1 spot.
In the Legends Division, two other Maryland players are fighting for the top spot. John Blank of Frostburg, Maryland, leads George Washburn of Frederick, MD by 977.5 points. Both are in the field at the TOC and both have been playing well.
In the first year of competition for the Super Legends Division, Walt Martin of St Augustine, Florida, has the title locked up with a 2,788.3-point lead over Charlie Busbee of Stockbridge, Georgia. Both are in the field in Ft. Myers.
