I live in Mays Chapel North and now have an elementary school in my backyard. Come a few weeks from now and our peaceful senior development will be chaos, with school buses and screaming children ("Kamenetz is a bully; put him in his place on election day," Aug. 9). We raised our children and are mostly grandparents, so we have nothing against kids, just politicians who are power hungry and are the closest thing to dictators. Our beautiful 10-acre park was destroyed by bulldozers along with our peace and quiet.

What is the U.S. Senior Open? Like the regular PGA Tour's Open, this U.S. Golf Association-run tournament is considered the quintessential major golf championship for the Senior Tour, since any golfer in America with a 3.4 handicap or less can enter. Of course, you have to turn 50 by Thursday to be eligible for the four-day event. This year, there were a record 3,101 entries received for the 156-player field, but 71 golfers were exempt, meaning they automatically qualified because of past performances in other tournaments.

PINEHURST, N.C. -- When the 15th U.S. Senior Open begins this morning over the world-renowned No. 2 Course of Pinehurst Country Club, no one in the 156-player field will have local knowledge to compare with Jay Sigel.Sigel may be a rookie on the PGA Senior Tour, but he is a veteran of No. 2, having played it more than 100 times. Couple this with a record 66 appearances in U.S. Golf Association events and a slew of national and international titles, and it adds up to a position as one of the tournament favorites.

Caves Valley is pretty as a picture. That will be plain to the professional golfers and the 150,000 or so spectators expected later this week for the 2002 U.S. Senior Open. What will not be so obvious is the care and seeding that have made Caves Valley, opened for play in 1991, such hallowed ground for golfers in such a short time. Manicured to perfection and with babbling brooks, rolling hills and wildlife, its a lovely setting for a major golf championship. But the 7,000-plus yard, par-72 layout is no walk in the park.

Dennis Satyshur has been to hundreds of tournaments in his nearly 30 years as a golf professional, yet his trip to this year's U.S. Senior Open in Peabody, Mass., will take on a special meaning. In the past, Satyshur has been at events as a participant or a spectator. This time, Satyshur will be there to scout. Satyshur, the head professional and director of golf operations at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, will be among a party of 45 going up to Salem Country Club this week to get a firsthand look at what it takes to run the biggest Senior event in the world.

Tom Watson, who came within one putt of making history at the British Open last month, will return to the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship at Baltimore Country Club's Five Farms course Sept. 28-Oct. 4 after a year's absence. Had Watson made his par putt on the 72nd hole on the Aisla Course of the Westin Turnberry Resort last month, he would have become golf's oldest major champion at age 59. Instead, he missed the putt and his bogey forced a playoff that ultimately was won by Stewart Cink.

Tom Watson, the craggy-faced legend who came within an 8-foot putt of winning a major championship at age 59, remains an inspiration for senior golfers everywhere. Count John Howson among his most fervent admirers. Howson, 50, a vice president of engineering for Black & Decker's DeWalt division in Towson and one of the best amateur players in the state, is gearing up to play in the big Middle Atlantic Amateur Golf Championship at Four Streams Country Club in Beallsville in October. But he's still buzzing from his performance in the U.S. Senior Open last weekend, where he finally got to meet Watson just weeks after Watson electrified the golf world by nearly becoming the oldest player to win the British Open in Turnberry, Scotland.

As a band played, hundreds of seniors and visitors ate slices of cake, celebrating the opening of a new senior center by filling a dining room that, in its old location, would barely have been able to seat half of them. On Friday morning, Carroll County opened the North Carroll Senior & Community Center, a 25,000-square-foot facility in Greenmount that is more than four times the size of its former location. The additional space will allow an increased number of activities for seniors, as the new building has separate areas designated for various activities, such as crafts, games, exercising and billiards.

The Sun's Travis Haney spoke with Dennis Satyshur, director of golf at Caves Valley Golf Club since its opening in 1991. Q: How did you hear about the course before it opened? A: I was the golf professional at Baltimore Country Club Five Farms and the word was getting around town that a new club was being built that was going to be a national club, a destination club. The more I learned about it, the more interested I became. Q: What was your initial reaction in 1997 when the USGA decided to bring the Senior Open to Caves?

Professionals Gary Anderson and Butch Butler each registered 1-under-par 69 to take the lead in the Senior Open at the Chevy Chase Club, and C.J. Reeves returned a 1-over-par 74 in the Women's Open at Holly Hills Country Club. Yesterday's play marked the first of two rounds for each event, both of which are sponsored and conducted by the Maryland State Golf Association. Anderson, the head pro at The Hamptons Golf Course in Hampton, Va., had two birdies and one bogey in shooting 34-35, and Butler, the head pro at Cedar Point GC at the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, turned even, birdied the 10th, then ran off eight straight pars for 35-34-69.
