Speaking from Thailand today, where he will join his good friend, singer Jimmy Barnes, in celebrating Jimmy’s 50th birthday, Peter is still suffering from the effects of a flu he picked up a couple of weeks ago. “I have been taking antibiotics and hope to have it cleared by the time I head back to the US on Monday.”

“At this stage, health permitting, I will play the next three weeks and hopefully get some momentum going. After Wachovia I will play in Dallas (Byron Nelson) and in Fort Worth (Colonial) then take a break then play the Memorial, the Barclays Classic and then try to qualify for the US Open.”

“Fortunately I have start at the British Open Championship at Hoylake because of making the Presidents Cup Team last year.”

Peter has his clubs with him in Thailand and is playing both today and tomorrow with Barnes who has become a golf fanatic

 
Peter disappointed at Hilton Head

Returning to the scene of his brilliant 2005 win at the Harbour Town Links at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina has not quite been the homecoming that Peter was hoping for

After opening rounds of 71 and 70 to be at one under and two shots inside the cut line heading into the weekend, Peter struggled throughout the final two rounds and eventually finished in 59th place.

In round three, double bogies at the 8th and 10th holes cost any chance of a reasonable round and on Sunday, although he started well with three early birdies he eventually finished with one under 71.

Having led for much of this event following his opening round of 62 in 2005, it was disappointing to have been unable to put up a better defence of his title. “It was still a great week despite not playing the way I wanted,” Peter said after the event. “It was nice to be here as the defending champion and to be part of the ceremonial activities that the defending champion is part of but I just could not get things going in the right direction momentum wise.”

Peter now heads back to Orlando before a fleeting trip to Thailand to help his good mate Jimmy Barnes celebrate his 50th birthday following which he will play the Wachovia Championship.

 
Peter struggles again at Augusta

Four starts at Augusta and Peter has yet to make the cut. In today’s second round of the 2006 Masters, Peter improved from his opening round of 76 by two shots but it was not enough to play the weekend for the first time around the hallowed Augusta National.

“I made such a poor start yesterday,” said Peter referring to his opening few holes of round one where he dropped four shots in the first five holes. This is not a golf course where you want to be chasing you tail trying to make up shots. In the end a round of 76 wasn’t too bad after the start that I had.”
“Today it was the back nine that caused the problems although despite a front nine of even par there was still a stretch in the middle of that nine where I dropped three consecutive shots. Surprisingly it was more my tee to green game that was the problem this year rather than my putting. I just didn’t hit enough fairways or greens.”

“I thought the course played well over these first two days with the firmer, faster, golf course counteracting the additional length this year.”

Peter now heads to the Verizon Heritage looking to defend the title he won twelve months ago. He missed the cut at Augusta last year prior to winning at Harbour Town.
