COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) Hale Irwin knows all about switching from the gridiron to the greens, so when he heard John Elway might try to qualify for the U.S. Senior Open next year, he just shook his head.

"Good luck. He'd better throw some tight spirals, I'm telling you," Irwin cracked Tuesday at the tournament's launch party at The Broadmoor.

"John's an accomplished athlete, of course, but there's been a number of guys that came out and were rudely awakened to how well these guys can play because they're coming out now with very accomplished skills, very refined skills.
