PETER SENIOR continues on his merry way with his sixth straight top 10 finish on the 2011 US Champions Tour.
The 51 year old Australian PGA Champion began his third and final round at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open in New York with three straight birdies and added three more at 10, 11 and 14 to be just one stroke behind the leaders in the mid stages.
A solitary bogey on 15 saw him finish with rounds of 70, 69 and 67, tied for sixth and six strokes behind the winner, American tour rookie John Huston.
Huston, a seven time winner on the US PGA Tour and playing just his third Champions Tour event, won by three strokes over Nick Price.
Senior has won US$547,000 on the tour this year and is ninth on the money list.
The Champions Tour moves to Canada this weekend for the 2011 Montreal Championship at the Club de Golf Fontainebleau in Montreal, Quebec.
