Oakland head men's and women's golf coach Russ Cunningham will be making his first appearance in the United States Senior Open Championship. Although it will not be as a competitor, Cunningham will be caddying for longtime friend Randy Lewis in the 2012 U.S. Senior Open at Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, Mich.
“I first met Randy at the 2000 USGA Mid-Amateur Championship,” said Cunningham. “We’ve played several rounds together over the years and in 2009 he asked me to caddy for him at Hawk Hollow for the U.S. Senior Open qualifier, which he finished as the first alternate and later got into the championship.”
The 54-year-old Lewis was named the GAM Golfer of the Decade for the 1990s and Cunningham earned that distinction for the 2000s. Both players have established themselves in the amateur world and Cunningham was excited when he received the phone call from Randy to carry his bag in the 2012 U.S. Senior Open.
