Senior threatening at 2012 Pacific Links Hawaii Championship

Senior: “It’d be nice to have a win. I’ve come close.”
PETER SENIOR is tied for second going into the final round of the US Champions Tour’s inaugural Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

Still searching for his first Champions Tour title, Senior was four strokes behind lone leader Bill Glasson who shot a second round 7-under 65 to head the championship on 13-under.

Senior shot a 2-under 70 to follow up his first round 65. He led after the first round by a stroke.

“I scrapped around a bit today,” the Australian said after a second round that included four birdies and two bogeys.

Senior has had five runner-up finishes on the tour, losing three playoffs.

“I am going to go out there and give my all tomorrow,” he said.

Glasson too is yet to win on the Champions Tour but with seven US PGA Tour wins under his belt could be hard to run down if he gets going early.

Senior was tied for second with Ireland’s Mark McNulty (68) while Corey Pavin (67), Willie Wood (68) and South African David Frost

(67) were tied for third on 8-under.

The event is being telecast live in Australia on Fox Sports with the final round telecast scheduled for the very viewer friendly time of Monday 9.30am – midday.
