 After the battles of Sunday at the Australian Open, Peter is in the more relaxed environment of Coolum on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland as he prepares for this week's Australian PGA Championship, a title he has won on three previous occasions at this venue.

The Palmer Coolum Resort has proved controversial and today Peter got a chance to again see some of the cause of the controversy. Jeff the dinosaur is placed alongside the 9th green and there are many signs painted onto the fairway but that aside the golf course is presented as well if not better than it has been in many years.

"The golf course is good," said Peter as he played his practice round with guests and members of the Sunshine Coast council.

"Last Sunday was a bit of a disaster but hopefully this is a whole new week," said Peter contemplating his chances and referring to his battles on the final day at the Australian Open. My game is a bit hard to pick at present but hopefully things can improve from my exhibition at the Lakes.

 Brendan has a 12.10 tee time on day one when he will play with Brett Rumford and John Senden.

 Peter has completed a final round of 79 at the Emirates Australian Open and finished well back in the field.

It was a disappointing week for Peter especially given that the event was played on his home golf course and in conditions that would normally have suited his style of play.

Peter had rallied late on Saturday with three late birdies after he had experienced a quadruple bogey nine at the par five 11th but an early double bogey at the 1st on day four set the done for a long day.

Peter will now head north to Coolum on the Sunshine Coast where he plays the Australian PGA Championship, an event he has won on three previous occasions at the Hyatt Regency Coolum. The venue is now renamed the Palmer Coolum Resort but the layout is essentially the same and Peter will be keen to utilize his fond memories of the Resort to get his game heading in the right direction.

Peter is unsure as to just how things will go this week when he plays his first Australian Open since 2008 but one things is for sure he will not lack local knowledge.

 Peter is a member of the Lakes Golf Club where this week's Emirates Australian Open is being played and although he has not played comeptitively and very little overall since the Second Stage of Qualifying for the PGA Tour School three weeks ago he is hoping that his game is good enough shape to do well.

Peter has been a member of the Lakes Golf Club for several years and when back in Sydney practices here religiously but he only just returned from the USA last weekend.

"I had a poor finish to the year and hopefully I can get things heading in the right direction here and at the PGA next week.

"I know this course well which obviously helps but you have to play well also."

"My season was frustrating as I would play well then have a bad nine hole stretch on a regular basis so that is something that I need to work on - namely minimising the mistakes. 

"Peter will head back to the USA in January to play as many of the early season Web.com Tour event he can get a start in and hopefully be well positioned when the re-rank comes.   

Peter plays tomorrow at 7.50am with Queensland amateur Cameron Smith and South Australianj Nick Cullen.

Peter is heading home to Australia after missing out on advancing to the Final Stage of Qualifying for the 2013 PGA Tour.

 After an opening round of 68 had him well enough placed in the 72 hole event in Panama City in Florida, Peter proceded to slip down the leaderboard and eventually finished well outside the required top 19 and ties who made it through to the Final Stage.

Peter will now head back to Australia with only limited status on the Web.com Tour for 2013 and will play the Australian Open at his home club at the Lakes in Sydney and the Australian PGA Championship at Coolum on a golf course over which he has won on three occasions. 

Solid start for Peter at Stage Two.

Peter has made a promising start at Stage Two qualifying at his venue in Panama City in Florida, an opening round of three under 68 leaving him in 15th position at the completion of day one.

Peter made a shaky start with a bogey at his very first hole of the day but very importantly finished strongly with two birdies in his last three holes to made a big difference to his score and his standing heading into day two.  

 The leading 19 players and ties will progress to the Final Stage in late November so the good start will need to be maintained over the closing 54 holes.
