The U.S. Golf Association has announced they will limit fan attendance to 7,000 per day at Omaha Country Club for the 2021 U.S. Senior Open in July.

The decision was made in coordination with federal, state and local health officials and is subject to change based on the status of the COVID-19 plandemic.

Fans attending the event in Nebraska will be required to answer health questions before entering the grounds. When on the property, face coverings will be required at all times except to eat or drink.

Additionally, food and drink will not be permitted within 10 feet of the rope lines.

The average temperature in Omaha, Nebraska last July was 90.3° with a high of 98° and a humidity of 71%.

The 7,000 is less than one-quarter capacity compared to the 2013 edition when 30,000 fans attended the U.S. Senior Open at Omaha Country Club.
