Signs of bounceback for Peter at Australian Open

Peter is in good spirits for this week's Australian Open at the Australian Golf Club despite his missed cut at last week's UNIQLO Masters event in Melbourne, a return to one of his favourite golf courses not the only catalyst but an important one as he looks to re-gather after his lacklustre performance at Huntingdale.

Peter won the 2004 Australian Open at this venue and has always stated that it is on his favourite list of courses.

During the time he had off last weekend he did some extra work on righting the wrong that crept into his game last week and he was excited by the improvment.

Time will tell of course but after his impressive 4th place finish at the NSW Open he is keen to rebuild the momentum and record a good week at the Australian Golf Club ahead of next week's PGA Championship.

Peter also took part in a ceremony for 19 former Australian Open champions which took place during this week's 100th anniversary of the Australian Open where he and 18 other golfers ranging from the 85 year old Peter Thomson to the 22 year old Jordan Spieth played their part in what was a very special celebration of their respective victories.

Momentum slowed as Peter misses cut

In what has proven to be a disappointing week for Peter he has missed the cut at the UNIQLO Masters at Huntingdale after rounds of 75 and 72 left him two short of the required mark.

After an overall impressive week at the NSW Open last week it was frustrating that Peter was unable to build on that momentum. 

His opening round of 75 in the excellent morning conditions on Thursday left him well behind the eightball and although he showed signs of a recovery through his opening nine holes in Friday's second round, dropped shots over the closing stages cost him a chance to play the weekend.

Next up for Peter is the Australian Open Championship at the Australian Golf Club in Sydney next week. It is a golf course that is one of Peter's favourites and the venue for one of his two Australian Open wins.

 

 
Mixed emotions at NSW Open

It was with perhaps mixed emotions that Peter finished in a share of 4th position at the NSW Open at Stonecutter's Ridge in the west of Sydney.

Delight in as much it was his best performance in a tournament for several years but some level of frustration that he let an opportunity to finish much closer slip from his grasp.

Peter headed into the final round four shots behind the eventual winner Ben Eccles, the amateur from Geelong. Peter made a horror start, dropping three shots early but fought his way back and when he arrived at the par five last a birdie there might well have seen him finish in outright second. 

Unfortunately, however, Peter bogeyed the last and instead of finishing alone in second position he finished in a five way tie for 4th. 

Still it was a week that had followed two cuts made in the two events in Western Australia earlier in November.

Peter now heads to Huntingdale in Melbourne, the scene of his two Australian Masters Championship wins, and his encouraging form of late gives him reason to believe he could again do well.

Peter makes encouraging return to tournament golf

Peter has made a successful return to tournament golf after so long away with injury, making the cut in both PGA Tour of Australasia events he has played in Western Australia and a good start to this week's NSW Open.

 Like half the field at the Stonecutter's Ridge layout in Sydney's west, Peter is required to complete round two of the NSW Open on Saturday morning but opened with a round of 68 to be well enough placed before his second round gets under way.

"I am happy with the way things have gone and generally happy with my game and am looking forward to the next few weeks to try and build continuity but considering how long I have had away from the game I am pleased with the way things are going so far," said Peter.

Peter will play next week's Australian Masters which is back at Huntingdale this year where he has won the event on two previous occasions.

Then it is on to the Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club where Peter won the Australian Open in 2004 and finally he will play the Australian PGA Championship which he has won on three previous occasions although this time it is at the revamped RACV Royal Pines.

Peter plays well in New Zealand

Peter finished tied for 33rd at the BMW NZ Open in Queenstown to finish his summer of golf in Australasia, a final round of 68 and a final nine of 33 at the Hills seeing the season off in good style.

It has been a frutrating run for Peter this summer but an 11th place in Auckland the previous week and a solid week in Queenstown continues to provide hope for the year ahead.

Work on his chipping, an area of his game that has given much grief in recent times, after the Victorian PGA Championship, appears to have yielded some results.

It is expected Peter might play some OneAsia events and is still considering the possibility of playing some events in the US later in the year, taking advantage of the exemptions for players approaching the Champions Tour.
