A native of California, Loren Roberts has been a resident of Memphis since he began playing the PGA Tour in 1980. He won eight times on the PGA Tour before joining the Champions Tour when he became eligible at the age of 50. He quickly became one of the leading money winners on the senior circuit. He started 2006 with three straight wins, but his fifth senior title was the biggest of his career—the 2006 Senior British Open Championship, a title he won again in 2009. In 2007 he won the Charles Schwab Cup and a $1,000,000 annuity. In addition to being one of Tennessee’s best ambassadors, he played on one Ryder Cup team and one President’s Cup team.
