Senior Open Championship Times... Finally!

First of all, it took me forever but I finally found the TV schedule for the Senior Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. All four days -- ESPN2 will show it from noon till 2pm ET. It's not much, but it's all we got.

The weather looks like it's going to be much easier than it was at Muirfield last week, but that doesn't make picking a winner any easier. This is the 3rd straight major for some of the seniors, and none of them have played particularly well. Fred Couples was low man at Muirfield and he finished T32 at +9. O'Meara won there in 1998, but after two good opening rounds I wasn't that impressed with his weekend at Muirfield. It's hard to pick any of the seniors from Muirfield to show up big this week.

Likewise, while Kenny Perry won the last 2 senior majors, I don't expect him to light it up at Royal Birkdale. I could be wrong of course -- I've heard several commentators say Kenny's draw will play perfectly there. But he'll have to prove it to me; 3 straight majors for anybody not named Inbee Park is a stretch for me.

Instead, I'm going with a name no one has mentioned: Bernhard Langer. So far this season he's got 2 wins, 2 seconds, and 2 thirds... and yet nobody seems to know he exists when it comes to talking majors. I think he's due.

So remember -- Senior Open Championship, noon till 2pm ET, ESPN2. That's the ticket.
