Peter Senior has best finish on 2015 Champions Tour

Peter Senior SBO 595

PETER SENIOR continued his late season resurgence on the 2015 US Champions Tour, sharing third place at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at the En-Joie Golf Club in New York.

The 56 year old Queenslander shot a final round 7-under 65 to finish on 10-under, four strokes shy of winner Jeff Maggert (66), and two behind his fellow American and second placegetter Paul Goydos (68).

Senior moved to 42nd in the season long Charl Schwab Cup points race and needs to continue the good form and get into the top 30 in the remaining three events to ensure his full status future on the tour.

Maggert is in no such predicament, with Sunday’s victory his fourth of the year.

“A great win,” said Maggert, who vaulted to the top of the standings.  “I played just like I wanted to on the front nine, tried to put some distance between me and the rest of the guys and let `em try to catch me.”

“Not so many birdies on the back nine, but I kind of hung in there, didn’t make any mistakes and finished it off.”

Maggert won the Regions Tradition in May and the U.S. Senior Open in July, both major championships, and took the Shaw Charity Classic three weeks ago in Canada.

Senior shared third with Corey Pavin (69), David Frost (64), Jerry Smith (67) and Ian Woosnam (70).
