MILITARY APPRECIATION DAY

The Boeing Classic is honored to recognize the men and women that serve our country with the tournament's second annual Military Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 26. In an effort to have as many service men and women take part in the celebration, active, retired, and reserve military as well as their dependents will receive free admission on Sunday and throughout the tournament.

Military personnel will play a vital role in the tournament's events and operations. In addition to receiving free admission and parking, there will be a special performance of the national anthem with U.S. Armed Forces color guard prior to the first tee times at 10:30am. Also, the first tee player announcements will be made by military personnel. The U.S.O. will host The Patriot’s Outpost at the top of the 18th green, offering free food and drink for military families, all while flying the stars and stripes as the pin flag on the 18th green.

The Boeing Classic looks forward to giving back to those who have given so much. For additional information, please visit www.BoeingClassic.com.

 

THE CANYON CLUB

The Canyon Club is located on the most exciting vantage point at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, where you can watch your favorite Champions Tour pro take the risk and drive the ball over Bears Canyon or play it safe and lay it up right in the fairway. It's a risk-reward hole like no other at the Boeing Classic that provides great drama, impressive views and extra perks. This is truly the best seat in the house!

For just $35 you can purchase a Canyon Club Party Pass that includes several great perks such as one free beverage, the opportunity to purchase upgraded concessions, a comfortable seat in the shade with a great view of the 14th hole tee to green, and an ideal spot on the sun deck from which you can also watch the pros tee off on the 18th hole. Take advantage of Birdies for Beers, with half-off beers for ten minutes every time a Champions Tour Pro makes a birdie! The Canyon Club is the place to be at the Boeing Classic!

U.S. SENIOR OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

Only two majors remain on the Champions Tour in 2012, the Senior British Open at Turnberry and the U.S. Senior Open Championship this week at Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, Michigan. Indianwood's old course previously hosted the 1989 and 1994 U.S. Women's Opens.

An unlikely Olin Browne narrowly defeated Mark O'Meara at last year's Senior Open. A bogey on the eighth by Browne dropped him into a tie with O'Meara, but he played the final 10 holes of the tournament in one under while O'Meara had two costly bogeys. Browne won the 2011 Senior Open by three strokes, capping off his first tournament win in five years with a 30 foot putt. Browne is only the fifth player to win on the Champions Tour, the Nationwide Tour, and the PGA Tour.

This week's U.S. Senior Open includes several names that will also be at the Boeing Classic later this summer, such as the 2010 winner of both tournaments Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, and Seattle's own Fred Couples. Exciting pairings to watch for are the groups of Nick Price, Corey Pavin, and Tom Lehman as well as Paul Simson and Bernhard Langer. Watch all of these great golfers at the 2012 U.S. Senior Open held this Thursday July 12th thru Sunday, July 15th. Tournament coverage is on ESPN and ESPN2 this Thursday and Friday from 12pm-4pm PST, and on NBC Saturday and Sunday from 12am-3pm PST.
