Great start to Senior career for Peter
Written by Bruce Young   
Saturday, 29 July 2017

Peter is tied for 7th and just three shots from the lead at the Senior Open Championship at Royal Porthcawl in Southern Wales.

As was the case on day one, Peter started slowly with two early bogeys but steaded the ship and was well positioned with just a few holes to play but bogeys at the 15th and 17th holes cost him a chance of potentially leading the event into the weekend. 

It has been however a very encouraging start to his career in the over fifties and in a share of 7th place and close to the lead anyway he has a chance over the weekend to improve further. 

"I was just holding on the whole day pretty much I think," said Peter. "It was really difficult to get the ball close, even if you did get it on the greens. Of course with the wind, the rain squalls, made it pretty difficult to hole some putts. I was hoping to get it in a couple over.

"I was a couple over with probably four to go, and 15, 16, 17 are probably the toughest, the tougher holes on the course, if you stay away from 1, 2, 3, 4. I would have loved to have just get through that with one bogey maybe and then birdie the last. But it didn't happen.

"If the wind stays up, it's still going to be a reasonable score I think. It's playing pretty tough. As long as you can stay somewhere around par I think coming into Sunday, you'll be in with a shout."

 

 
Peter awaits Senior Tour debut

Peter has arrived in Wales for this week's Senior Open Championship and has already fallen in love with the Royal Porthcawl layout where this week he will make his debut in over fifties golf.

Peter spent last week at the TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas preparing for this week but on arrival and after his first look at Royal Porthcawl he was impressed by what he saw.

"What a great golf course," said Peter today. The weather might not be so good however as it is predcited to be bad so it is going to be quite a test.

Peter is happy enough with the manner in which he is playing having put together several low rounds on the Web.Com Tour in recent weeks.

The event is jointly sanctioned between the European Senior and Champions Tour.

Peter plays his opening two rounds with Carl Mason and Steen Tinning 

 

 

 
A reasonable week ahead of Senior Tour debut
Written by Bruce Young   
Tuesday, 18 July 2017

The Utah Classic in Farmington was a low scoring affair and despite two very encouraging middle rounds of 65 Peter got lost in the rush on Sunday and slipped from a share of 16th through 54 holes to a final placing of 51st even though his final round of even par was not all that bad.

Peter has certainly shown encouraging signs ahead of his senior debut next week at the Senior Open Championship in Wales however and as he heads off to play that event and the Scottish Senior Open the following week at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick.

Peter turned 50 on July 17th and is now eligible to play European Senior Tour events but his debut will be a major championship in senior golf and what a place to start at Royal Porthcawl in Southern Wales.

A few days to prepare at one of the TPC courses in the US before heading for Wales is what Peter has in mind.
