Great start to Senior career for Peter

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."
