He probably won’t win, but you never know!  Among the famed golfers at the 2017 U.S. Senior Open, such as John Daly, Fred Couples, Nick Faldo, Tom Watson and Vijay Singh, a golfer from Fort Collins will be there to take his swing at winning!

Dale Smigelsky is the PGA professional at Collindale Golf Course in Fort Collins. Dale’s been golfing for years, with tournament wins in Nebraska, Florida and here in Colorado. In early June of 2017, Dale finished with a 68 (4 under par) at the Colorado Senior Open at the Meadows Golf Club in Littleton.; by doing so, Dale will now be on the list of pros competing at the U.S. Senior Open!

You may see other stories about Dale being in the Senior Open, but none of the other stories will be telling you this: Dale used to run the Runza franchises in Loveland and Fort Collins! He was my boss when I worked at the Loveland location in the late 80s/early 90s!

It’ll be fun to watch the TV coverage of the event, looking for Dale! Good Luck, Boss!
