SE­NIOR’S WIN FOR THE AGED

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside the Ropes -

Pro­fes­sional golf’s youth move­ment took a hit when 56-year-old Aus­tralian Peter Se­nior with­stood a fi­nal­round charge by US Am­a­teur cham­pion Bryson DeCham­beau, 22, to win the Aus­tralian Masters at Hunt­ing­dale in Mel­bourne. He last won the Masters in 1995, when DeCham­beau was two. Se­nior now has a re­mark­able hat-trick of wins in Aus­tralia since turn­ing 50. He won the 2010 Aus­tralian PGA at 51 and the 2012 Aus­tralian Open at 53.
