PETER SENIOR will be looking for a change of fortune on the US Champions Tour after another less than stellar performance at the latest event.
Senior shot a final round 5-over 77 at the Boeing Classic at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge in Washington State on Sunday to finish the three rounds on 4-over, tied for 64th in the 80 man field.
That was 20 shots behind the winner Scott Dunlap (63), who took his maiden senior tour title after a one hole playoff over fellow American Mark Brooks (65).
Senior has been a star performer since joining the tour in 2010 – coming just about as close as possible to winning an event without actually getting his hands on a title – but has struggled somewhat this year.
He has had just two top ten finishes this year (that does include a T9 at the US Senior Open) and seven top 25’s, but will need to get a move on to ensure playing privileges next season.
Senior is currently 39th on the Charles Schwab Cup points list and needs to be in the top 30 to be guaranteed an ongoing card. By comparison, last year he finished 13th and had nine top tens in his 25 events.
But one thing the Queensland native is known for on the golf course is being a fighter, and he still has the pointy end of the Champions Tour season to go to inspire him further.
The tour moves on to Calgary, Canada, this week for the second annual Shaw Charity Classic at the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club.Boeing Classic Results
