COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Former University of Colorado All-American Hale Irwin is teeing up at the U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor this week.

It’s a homecoming of sort for the 73-year-old World Golf Hall of Famer. Irwin met with the media on Wednesday afternoon and talked about how the Broodmoor played a role in his decision to ultimately choose golf over football.
