Forsgate CC's Frank Esposito, will compete in this week's KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa Oklahoma. "I've never been to Southern Hills but I'm really looking forward to competing there and seeing how well I compete against the best seniors in the world", said the Staten Island native when asked what he was most looking forward to. The last time Esposito competed in a major was at the 2019 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York. Unfortunately Esposito missed the cut in 2019 but will look to change his track record this week at Southern Hills.
"Winning the 2020 Senior Player of the Year especially in the New Jersey Section is a special thing. I played really well at the right time. I came into last year not playing great but winning the MET Senior Open got things going for me early in the season. I'm still struggling with the driver a little bit but my putting has been really consistent and my irons and as good as ever".
"I'm really looking forward to getting back out on the course with some of my old friends who are playing on the Senior Tour. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with them and kicking it around with them again this week. I was originally going to have Aaron Asedo caddie for me but he and his wife just had a baby so now I'll have a club caddie for me this week".
Round 1 begins on Thursday, May 27 at Southern Hills CC. Stay tuned for Round 1 tee times, features and coverage of Frank's week at Southern Hills.
Good luck Frank!
