Peter misses out on Champions Tour card
Written by Bruce Young   
Saturday, 02 December 2017

Peter has finished 23rd at the Champions Tour Qualifying in Arizona, the result not enough to earn him a card to play on the lucrative tour in 2018 but it will allow him to attempt Monday qualifying for events next season.

Peter's brilliant third round of 63 moved him to the edge of contending for one of the sought after cards but he would have needed another similar round today if he was to get the job done.

It was always going to be a tough task for Peter given the numbers game involved but he will be bouyed by his overall showing and he will now consider playing the Champions Tour where he can earn a  start and the occasional event on the European Senior Tour where he does enjoy status.

With his newly arrived daughter Yvonne and wife Ali now part of a signficant change in Peter's life he takes to the fairways of the Australian Golf Club this week as he prepares for not only what will be hopefuly a good week but the opportunity to prpeare for the Champions Tour qualifying next  week in the USA.

Having played a solid tournament at last week's NSW Open in his first event since the Fiji International in September, Peter is keen to build on that momentum this week at a venue on which he has won the Australian Open previously.

Peter won the second of his two consecutive Australian Opens at The Australian Golf Club in 2004 and has always rated the layout as one of his favourites.

Peter heads out to the Arizona in the USA as soon as his involvement in this week's event is completed chasing one of the few spots available on the Champions Tour.

In his first start on the Champions Tour in July he finished third behind none other than Bernhard Langer and Corey Pavin at Royal Porthcawl in Wales highlighting that if he is able to get one of the cards available he is in for a good career at that level. 

Peter has an afternnon draw on day one when he will play with former Masters winner, Mike Weir, and American Zac Blair.

Peter is in Sydney at present and will be until mid October before heading to Queensland for the Queensland Open.

"I am playing the Australian events this summer although will not be able to play the PGA Championship on the Gold Coast as I am planning to be at the Champions Tour Qualifying School that week.

"I have access to the Final Stage courtesy of my PGA Tour career so am looking forward to the events leading up to that in order that I can have my game at its best.

I was disappointed with my effort in Fiji as after doing well at the Senior Open Championship and then making the cut in the PGA Tour event following I felt the game was in good shape but that's golf I guess."

Peter will play the Australian Open at the Australian Golf Club just ahead of leaving for the US   

 

 
Peter Fiji bound

Peter is back in Sydney for a few days following his recent efforts at the Senior British Open at Royal Porthcawl in Wales and the PGA Tour's Barracuda Championship in Nevada where he played well in both events.

Peter finished third behind Bernhard Langer and Corey Pavin at the Champions Tour event in Wales and then made the cut but finished well back in Nevada after finding out very late that he had a start in that event.

Peter is keen to keep the good form he showed in both events going and he will head off on Monday to the Fiji International, a jointly sanctioned event between the Asian, European and Australasian Tours in Natadola Bay in Fiji next week.

"I am playing well at present and am keen to keep it going while I can," said Peter from his home in Sydney today. "The last hole of the Senior Open Championship was a little gut-wrenching as it could have had implications as far as potential status on the Champions Tour but I was pleased overall with my debut in senior golf."

Peter three putted the last for par while his playing partner Coey Pavin holed from 25 feet for birdie to move ahead of him and into second place behind Langer.  

Playing options ahead of a tilt at the Champions Tour qualifying later this year are still being considered.

 
Peter starts well but finishes well back in Reno

After what had been an encouraging start to the PGA Tour's Barracuda Championship in Reno in Nevada, Peter has finished well back in a share of 54th position.

Peter was a late inclusion in the field and in fact was not advised until late Tuesday that he was to take one of the reserve places in the field. 

 "When they (the PGA Tour) called initially I thought they were referring to a Champions Tour event," said Peter earlier in the week.

"But was delighted to get another PGA Tour start after so long and was overall pretty happy with the way I played. While last week was encouraging (3rd on debut in senior golf)  the way I finished on the 72nd hole at the Senior Open in Wales was a bit gutwrenching but it was nice to have at least started well here and make the weekend.

"The final two rounds were a bit disappointing but that's the way it goes and on a golf course where scoring was overall very low I was not able to make the sort of progress I had holed for over the weekend."

Peter will now head back to Australia, his immediate schedule not yet determined.
