PETER SENIOR has again ended his golfing year on a high with back to back victories at the 2013 PGA Legends Tour Championship at Byron Bay Golf Club.
Senior showed a clean pair of heels to the field with a dominant ten shot victory. The US Champions Tour regular shot rounds of 65, 65 and 71 for a fifteen under par total.
“I played great the first two days, the course is in great shape and a real joy to play,” the 54 year old said.
Senior’s only two bogies for the entire tournament came in his third and final round.
“Today was a struggle but I scrambled well. If Gary (Burmister) had made a few more birdies early it might have been different but I couldn’t fault my game over the first two days”.
Queenslander Burmester finished in outright second on 5-under, posting the best final round with a two under par round of 70. Victoria’s Mike Harwood (73) was third on 1-under,
The tournament was the final event of the 2013 E-Z-GO Legends Tour which also culminated with David Merriman (NSW) winning the Order of Merit title. Merriman’s earnings have seen him finish up the season with total earnings of $64521.47.
After a well deserved break over Christmas, players will commence the 2014 circuit with the Col Crawford BMW Legends Pro-Am at Bayview Golf Club in Sydney on January 13.PGA Legends Tour Championship Results
