Veteran Senior becomes oldest Australian Masters champion

by vlad on Воскресенье, Ноябрь 22nd, 2015

Peter Senior outclassed a host of challengers half his age to clinch his third Australian Masters title by two strokes on Sunday, and at 56 became the oldest winner in the tournament’s 36-year history.

The stocky veteran overcame a bout of nerves and withstood a late charge by Sydney professional Andrew Evans at Melbourne’s Huntingdale Golf Club before sealing the win on the 18th hole with a clutch five-foot putt for par.

Senior’s final round three-under 68 gave him an eight-under total of 276, sealing his third ‘gold jacket’ 20 years after his second at Huntingdale in 1995. He won his first in 1991.
