MARION, Mass. – As the U.S. Senior Amateur kicks off this weekend, with two rounds of stroke-play qualifying at The Kittansett Club), there’s a quiet 59-year-old lifelong amateur, from Mooresville, N.C., who is inclined to let his clubs do the talking, exactly as he has done, tournament after tournament, since he turned 55 in 2018.
The quiet assassin’s name is Steve Harwell.
Don’t be deceived by the demeanor.
You would actually find yourself hard-pressed to name any senior with a more impressive collection of high finishes in top-caliber events over that same half-decade.
