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.

Peter has received a late call up for the PGA Tour's Barracuda Championship and will play the modified stableford event in Reno in Nevada.

After the disappointment of the final hole on Sunday at Royal Porthcawl Peter does however know that his game is in good shape overall and his appearance in his first PGA Tour event since 2013 will be watched with interest. 

 

 

 
Great debut but perhaps a case of what might have been
Written by Bruce Young

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.
