Senior becomes oldest Australian Open champion at 53 years of age.
Peter Senior won his first Australian Open in 1989 and now, 23 years later at the age of 53, he has again won the Stonehaven Trophy in a day full of drama at The Lakes in Sydney.
"I really thought these days were over. Golf is such a funny game. One minute you think you are down and the next minute you are up. I did not play particularly well this week but I got it up and down all week and today was no exception." Senior said.
Senior's victory was remarkable considering the conditions. He did not miss a fairway on a cold, blustery day which saw only six players finish under par for the tournament. Senior estimates he only missed around three fairways all week in what must be a triumph for senior golfers all over the country.
