Peter has end of year schedule worked out
Written by Bruce Young   
Tuesday, 24 September 2013

Peter will play several events in Australia over the next two months while incorporating Stage Two and hopefully the Final Stage of Web.Com Tour School into his schedule.

Peter has been back in Sydney for three weeks attending to family business and indicated today that he will play the West Australian Open, the Perth International, the Australian PGA Championship and the Australian Masters before heading to Stage Two of qualifying for the Web.Com Tour in California.

"After the Second Stage I will head back to play the Australian Open at Royal Sydney, then provided things have gone ok at Stage Two I will be on my way back to the Final Stage of Qualifying," said Peter today.

"It will be a busy schedule but I have worked out I can fit it all in. It is a shame I didn't start to find form a little earlier on this year's Web.Com Tour but I was happy with the way I was beginning to play so hopefully I can pick it up where I left off."

 Peter is of course a previous winner of the Australian PGA, the Australian Masters and the Australian Open so is delighted to have been able to build them into his schedule and still  play the Tour School

 

 
Peter considering options

With his 2013 Web.Com Tour campaign done and dusted, Peter now looks ahead to the options he has remaining in terms of where he will play over the next few months.

His brave bid for a last minute inclusion in the top 75 who would get to play the Web.Com Tour finals came to an end late in the final round of last week's Cox Classic. Knowing he need a top three to earn a place in the four event Finals, Peter worked his way into a share of 3rd with nine holes to go before a late bogey put paid to any chance he might have had.

Still, given the manner in which he has been playing to date this season, the last two or three weeks have shown considerable improvement and gives cause for some level of confidence as he considers a return to Stage Two of the Web.Com Tour School in mid November. 

"That was a close one.I actually played great but was probably pushing a bit to hard in the end to catch the leaders," said Pete.

"Unfortunately I three putted from about 15 ft on 16 which really hurt after a pure 2 iron into the par 3.Then drove it 350 yards down 17 into long rough through the fairway.Never dreamt i could hit it that far.

"At the end of the day I needed one shot less to finish in the top100 which was an important number as well.

"I have made a few equipment changes of late and adjusted the anti-inflamatory medication I have been on for my back and hip issues and I seem to be a lot more focused. I also switched my putter to an extra long short putter and a new method adopted to accomodate that and it seems to have made a difference.

"Now I must decide what I will do over the next couple of months. I have the option of playing Stage Two of the newly introduced Web.Com Tour School which I am seriously considering but it may be that I will play a few events back in Australia beforehand.

"This has been a disappointing year although recent signs have been encouraging and have made me realise there is some life in the old dog yet and although it has been a case of too little too late at least there is some light at the end of the tunnel. 

 


 
Peter fights to the finish in Nebraska

Peter has staged a remarkable late run at retaining his Web.Com Tour status and keeping his PGA Tour hopes alive during the weeknd at the Cox Classic in Omaha in Nebraska.

A third round of 64 had Peter on the edge of contention and whe he moved to 5 under for the day and 16 under for the tournament in today's final round his goal of a top three to make the top 75 and the Web.Com Tour finals was looking a genuine possibility.

A bogey at the 16th put an end to any hope in that regard but his 9th place finish was his best of the season and follows some improved form late in the season. It is however a case of too little too late in his quest for a place in the Web.Com Tour finals and so Peter is likely to return to Australia before possibly teeing it up at the Web.Com Tour School in December.

...More later. 

 
One last chance for Peter

Peter has one last chance of retaining his Web.Com Tour status when he tees it up at the Cox Classic in Omaha in Nebraska this week.

In order to reach the Web.Com Tour finals starting next week in Fort Waye in Indiana, Peter needs to improve from his current 148th on the money list to, at worst, 75th. In order to do that he will need a top three finish so while it is a big ask there was enough to like about the way he played last week in Knoxville to suggest it is not a forlorn hope.

Peter produced 18 birdies in his 72 holes last week and was bought undone really by just a couple of holes before finishing 30th.

Working in his favour is the fact that Peter played this tournament well last year, especially early in the week. 

 

 

 

 
Late fightback keeps Peter alive in Knoxville

Peter has staged a great fightack in round two of the News Sentinel Open in Knoxville, four late birdies forcing his way into the weekend field and keeping his hopes alive of adding further to his chances of improving his money list position before next week's regular season ending Cox Classic in Omaha.

After a solid if unspectacular opening round of  70, Peter had a late tee time today and began horrendously with a double bogey / bogey start to his second round. By the time he reached his 11th hole he was four shots from the cut mark but his strong finish has him playing the weekend.

Importantly Peter has a start at next week's Cox Classic so a big finish this weekend and a good tournament next week keeps his slim hopes alive of scraping inside the top 75 who get to play the Web.Com Tour finals.
