2015 ACE Group Classic Preview: Leaderboard
PETER SENIOR had a year largely to forget on the 2014 US Champions Tour, finishing outside the top 15 money list for the first time in four years.
In fact, he finished 44th with just two top ten finishes in the season and lost his full playing rights on the very lucrative over 50’s circuit.
Injury kept the 55 year old out of the final year tournaments in Australia so hopefully he will be fully rested and fighting fit when he gets a chance to bounce back in his first Champions Tour start for 2015 at the ACE Group Classic at the TwinEagles Golf Club in Naples, Florida, this week.
Senior had one of his best results of the year when he finished T11 at this event in 2014. The year wasn’t a total loss though with T9 finishes at both the US Senior Open Championship and 3M Championship and a season money winning total of US$ $383,551. (The three previous years were each well over US$1 million.)
One golfer who does seem to love this event is Germany’s Bernhard Langer, who won in 2011 and 2013 and finished runner-up in 2012 and 2014 – not a bad four year spread.
Langer finished T26 in the Champion Tour’s first full field event of the year at the Allianz Championship in Florida last week and will no doubt do is level best to keep his excellent record here intact.
The defending champion is Kirk Triplett while the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Rocco Mediate and last week’s winner Paul Goydos will no doubt be keeping everyone honest.
Live Fox Sports Coverage: 1st Round, Saturday 4.30am – 6.30am; 2nd Round, Sunday 7am – 9.30am; Final Round, Monday 7am – 9am.
