John Elway named Honorary Chairman of 2018 U.S. Senior Open Championship

DENVER, Colo. — John Elway was announced the Honorary Chairman of the 2018 U.S. Senior Open Championship at The Broadmoor Wednesday.

Elway has led the Broncos to several Super Bowl victories as both a player and a general manager.

FOX21’s own Joe Cole emceed the event.

Elway said he’s excited for the opportunity and he can’t wait to watch the sport. He admits he didn’t play a lot of golf until he moved to Colorado, playing it more in the off-season.

He pointed out a few differences between his football skills and golfing abilities.

“I think in football you can try hard and try to make things happen, especially in certain situations, but one thing I learned in golf as soon as you try to make something happen, in golf, it usually [golf] you have more time to think and that’s why it’s probably better for me to play football and there was more reaction,” Elway said.

The 2018 U.S. Senior Open Championship will take place June 28 to July 1 on The Broadmoor Golf Club’s East Course.
