Defending Champion Paul Claxton leads a 264-player field of 50-and-over PGA Professionals from across the nation gathering this week in New Mexico at the 2022 Senior PGA Professional Championship.
Claxton twice parred the 18th hole at PGA Golf Club, once in regulation to cap a final-round, 2-under 70 and again 20 minutes later, in a playoff, to win the 2021 Championship over Mark Mielke.
Two of the most celebrated golf facilities in the SouthwestーTwin Warriors Golf Club at Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa and Santa Ana Golf Club, both in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexicoーwill host the National Championship, which gets underway on Thursday, Oct. 13.
The low 35 scorers earn a berth in the 2023 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship to be contested next May at PGA Frisco in Frisco, Texas.
