US Champions Tour: 2014 Allianz Championship Preview: Leaderboard

Peter Senior SBO 595

PETER SENIOR and STEVE ELKINGTON will fly the flag for Australia this week with the US Champions Tour playing its first full-field event for 2014.

Rocco Mediate is the defending champion at the Allianz Championship at the Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton, Florida.

Last year Mediate became the 16th player on the over 50’s US Tour to win on debut.

The effervescent now 51 year old sunk a 4-foot birdie putt on the final hole to hold off Tom Pernice Jr, ironically the previous player to have a first up win.

Unfortunately, that list of 16 doesn’t include Senior, now going into his fifth year on the Champions Tour, or Elkington, in his second year.

Senior has gone close on so many occasions, he’s finished second on six occasions, including this event in 2012 when he lost in a playoff against Corey Pavin. Hopefully, 2014 will break the duck.

Contenders this week include all those golfers already mentioned, plus the likes of Bernhard Langer, Kenny Perry, Mark Calcavecchia and another relative newbie in Colin Montgomerie.
