One hole cost Blaine’s Keith Henderson dearly on the front nine during the first round of the 2017 U.S. Senior Open.
Henderson triple-bogeyed the par-3, 206-yard fifth hole and made the turn at 3-over 38, tied for 112th place. Henderson also scored a bogey on the par-4 second hole, but recorded a birdie on the par-4 eighth at the Salem Country Club in Peabody, Massachusetts.
Henderson, who was the former head pro at Loomis Trail Golf Course and has worked at Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club, is playing in his first major and his first tournament outside the Pacific Northwest PGA. He qualified for the Senior Open by finishing second at a qualifier held July 12 at Bellingham Golf and Country Club.
