Jeff Maggert is a USGA Champion
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/29/15
Jeff Maggert won the United States Senior Open on Sunday at Del Paso Country Club in heat-torched Sacramento, California. That is the first breath.
We at SkyGolf are reasonably sure that Maggert is pleased to have taken the trophy from USGA president Tom O'Toole and not from former USGA president David Fay. This is because the award-winning author John Feinstein, in his book in his book Open (at right), Feinstein tells of when Maggert was upset at Fay over course conditions during the second round of the 2002 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black. Maggert managed to avoid bogey that day, but after his round, he had some rather choice words for Mr. Fay. Feinstein takes it from there:
As he accepted the card, Maggert said to Reinhardt, "Oh and you can tell David Fay I said he's a f------ idiot." Reinhard wrote down the quote, leaving out the profanity, and said he would be sure to pass Maggert's regards to Fay. When he heard the comment, Fay shrugged. "Maybe he's mad because a couple of years go I told someone that I was concerned that, the way we were setting up our golf courses, we might end up not identifying the best players in the world but the Jeff Maggerts of the world."No kidding, Feinstein. Maggert finished in third place at both the 2002 U.S. Open and the 2004 U.S. Open at
Fast-forward to Sunday and the final round of the U.S. Senior Open. Maggert started the final 18 holes tied with Bernhard Langer for the lead, one shot ahead of defending champion Colin Montgomerie and seven other players. One of those was 65-year-old Tom Watson, who was trying to become the oldest winner of a senior major championship.
The final round ended up as a horse race; Maggert shot a Sunday 65 to Monty's 66, edging him by two strokes. New Zealander Grant Waite and the aforementioned Langer finished T-3, while Billy Andrade and Lee Janzen were another shot back, T-5.
Maggert has captured two of the five senior majors this year; last month he won the Tradition at Shoal Creek in Birmingham, Alabama. Intrestingly, Maggert, Montgomerie, and Langer combined have won the last eight senior majors.
After two thirds at the U.S. Open and two more third-place finishes at the 1995 and 1997 PGA Championships, Maggert is understandably elated:
"It's satisfying just because the guys out here on the Champions Tour are the same guys that I was trying to beat 20 years ago.Maggert is also undeniably happy that his wife Michelle and twin 10-year-olds, Madeline and Jake, flew from South Caroline early Sunday morning to be there. None of the three had been present at any of Maggert's three other Champions Tour wins.
And now, the 51-year-old Maggert has a $675,000 winner's check, some nice hardware and, to top it off, he is now exempt into the 2016 U.S. Open Championship at the fiendishly difficult Oakmont.
