Peter forced to withdraw in Miami

Friday, 12 October 2012

Peter has fallen victim to a back spasm in the middle stages of his first round at the Miccosukee Championship in Miami and has been forced to withdraw from the event after playing just ten holes. It could not have come at a worse time given the need for Peter to play his way at least inside the top 60 from his current 72nd position on the money list in order to make the field for the Tour Championship in two week's time.

It was a frustrated Peter who contemplated his fate after walking from the course. At that point he was well enough placed at 1 over although it was clear he could not continue on this day.

"I played the first nine quite nicely," said Peter. "One three putt bogey and two birdies to be 1 under at the turn to have my back blow out on the 9th hole. "I played the 10th and bogeyed it but knew the damage had already been done so decided to withdraw." 

"Now I am just going to spend the next few days trying to sort it out by next week," said a very disappointed Peter.

Peter's one last shot in his attempt to make the Tour Championship and hopefully avoid Stage Two of Tour School will be at next week's Winn Dixie Jacksonville Open in Ponte Vedra Beach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Peter needs quick improvement

Peter has returned from the corporate commitment he attended last week and is ready for this week's Miccosukee Championship in Miami.

 Peter has only two events to improve from his current 72nd position on the money list to the top 60 at worst as that will secure him a start at the Tour Championship in Dallas in three weeks time from where he can still make the top 25 with a big week.

"This is one of my favourite stops all year," said Peter on the eve of the event. 

"The course is one of the best of the year and going to be a serious test. A pretty damp summer has led to plenty of thick rough making hitting fairways very important.

"The fairways,in theory at least, should be easier to hit cause of the softness of the fairways but it will play extra long just to make up for it.

"I think we may end up playing lift clean and place for the whole week.

"Golf-wise I am very happy with the way I'm playing and just need to score for all four days in a row, something I haven't really done all year..

"It's two very important weeks coming up so hopefully I can play well."

 Peter has an early tee time on day one. 

 
Peter fuflils coporate commitment

Peter will play next week's Miccosukee Championship in Florida after missing this week's Web.Com Tour event in Washington.

Peter had a long standing corporate commitment that he was not prepared to back out of despite the need for him to improve his money list position.

 With just two more events before the Tour Championship, next week's tournament and the Jacksonville Open the following week become crucial in the chase for the additional $20,000 or so he will need to be inside the top 60 in order to play the Tour Championship in Dallas.   

 
Another near miss at Chiquita Classic

Peter has once again suffered a near miss at the Chiquita Classic in North Carolina. After an opening round of 72 on Thursday had him outside the top 100, Peter made a good start to his afternoon round on day two when he birdied three of his first five holes and at that point had moved inside the potential cutline.

From that point on however it became a frustrating stretch for Peter as he hit many greens over the next 13 holes but was unable to convert. A bogey at his 17th hole had him definitely missing the cut and even his birdie at the last saw him miss by just one after the cut score improved by one. 

Peter has missed the cut by narrow margins on several occasions this year and he must now look to the few remaining events on this year's Web.Com Tour to get things on track.

 Peter will play the Neediest Kids Championship at the TPC Avenel in Maryland beginning on Thursday 4th October.

 

 

   

 
Big month ahead for Peter

Peter is in North Carolina this week for the Chiquita Classic at the Club at Longview in the Charlotte suburb of Weddington.

The event is the 5th to last event of the 2012 season although the final event of the year, the Tour Championship at Craig Ranch in Dallas, is restricted to the leading 60 players on the money list. 

Peter remains in 67th position where he has been for the past two weeks despite indifferent efforts in Boise and Idaho so his first task is to ensure he makes it to the Tour Championship.

"Last week was the course I'd been waiting for all year", said Peter today. "Unfortunately I didn't back it up with some good golf..

"All my fault of course.I didn't play great the first day but held it together till about the 16th when I three putted and then caught a branch on 17 and hit it in the water on my way to a triple.That was about it you could say...

"This week is a new week and hopefully I can win the most improved!! It's a nice course.Pretty wide off the tee so the scores will be very low again I would think."

 

The event is a new one on the Web.com Tour schedule and as a result is an unknown for the field. The event will become one of the Web.com Tour finals in 2013 under the new qualifying system. 

The Jack Nicklaus designed Club at Longview was opened in 2003.
