Mixed fortunes on PGA's final day

Peter made a strong late rally at the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines to put himself in a position to challenge for the title.

After being outside the cutline when playing his approach to the second last hole during round two, Peter holed his approach for eagle at the par four 17th then birdied his final hole to move two shots inside the cut of 6 over par on the demanding layout.

On Saturday he was unable to move froward in terms of scoring but such was the growing difficulty of the golf course that his round of 73 moved him forward on the leaderboard.

During Sunday's final round Peter birdied the 3rd and 4th holes and although he did not birdie again until the par five 15th, his run of pars between had him within just two of the lead when he reached the 17th. A birdie, birdie, finish could well have had him contending for the title.

His drive found the middle of the fairway but he pulled his approach (when caught between clubs) just off the left of the green and took bogey and then bogeyed the last to finish at 4 over. It was good enough for a share of 9th place and while a disappointing finish to the day it was another encouraging week.

Peter will play this week's NSW PGA Championship, his final event of the year, at the Riverside Oaks Golf Club near Richmond to the North and East of Sydney.
