Golf Australia Express : GA Express 225
E VERYONE knew the end was coming for Peter Senior, who was due to retire after the Australian PGA Championship. But the 57-year-old’s troublesome hip couldn’t carry him for another hole, let alone another week, when it flared up during the second round of the Australian Open in November and forced him from the course mid-round. His dramatic retirement gave us all a couple of days to reflect and give one of golf’s good guys the due credit he deserved for a stellar career that included 23 Australasian PGA Tour victories – including his record-breaking Australian Masters win in 2015 – four European Tour wins and another three in Japan. Hard to think of many players who’ve given more to the game at home. W ITH golfing whiz kids emerging off the production line with increasing regularity, the days of wily veterans bobbing up for a PGA Tour win seemingly dwindle further by the week. But 47-year-old Rod Pampling didn’t read that script, belying age and a decade-long PGA Tour drought to win his first US event since 2006 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. It was one of the feelgood stories of the year, and Pampling will now be giving fossils worldwide hope until at least 2019, when his new PGA Tour exemption ends.
