Great debut but perhaps a case of what might have been

It was a brilliant debut in senior golf for Peter but it was perhaps a day of what might have been at the Senior Open at Royal Porthcawl in Wales where he eventually tied for 3rd.

After beginning the final round five shots behind leader, Bernhard Langer, Peter fought all day with a superb display of driving and iron play but the putting, which had been so good for so much of the week deserted him on day four and it would be a three putt at the last that would be the final blow.

Peter arrived at the last tied for second with playing partner Cory Pavin, Billy Andrade and Fred Couples, the latter pair in the clubhouse.

The last was a reachable par five and Peter hit a fine drive and then found the green with his second some 25 feet short of the hole. Pavin who could not reach the green after finding the rought with his tee shot hit a poor pitch 25 feet short of the hole.

He putted first and holed for an unlikely birdie and moved into second outright before Peter attempted his putt for eagle which would have given him second outright on his own.

The putt was misread or mishit and he finished 4 feet short and right.  Peter would have been standing in Langer's line and so waited while the champion finished out and then proceeded to miss his short putt for birdie and a share of second.

Peter would tie for third with Couples and Andrade.

To add insult to injury Peter would later find out he was not in next week's Scottish Open after initially being told a good finish this week would get him in after missing out on getting his entry in on time originally.
