SentryWorld will challenge golfers at the US Senior Open

STEVENS POINT – Some of the world’s best golfers have come to Stevens Point in the past few weeks for what for most was their first look at SentryWorld.

The Sentry-owned golf course — which was designed by Robert Trent Jones, opened in 1982 and has been renovated several times since — is hosting its third USGA Championship and by far its biggest event ever with this week’s US Senior Openwith practice rounds Tuesday and Wednesday and the 72-hole championship Thursday through Sunday.

With so few of the 156 players in the field having any experience playing the par-71, 7,177-yard park course, no one really knows what to expect.
