24 years after he first won the Gold Jacket and 20 years after he last slipped on the iconic blazer, Peter Senior has once again emerged victorious winning by two shots with a tournament total 8-under 276.

“It’s just amazing. I’m still blown over winning this tournament. The guys played pretty well.”

Playing solid golf all week, Senior entered the final day tied third alongside Michael Sim, John Senden and Matthew Guyatt.

Right from his first tee shot Senior looked the man to beat, opening his final round with back-to-back birdies.

A couple of early bogeys on the 4th and 5th didn’t sway the Queenslander, holding his nerve he reignited the pace with two back-to-back birdies on the 6th and 7th.

With three holes to play Senior held a three shot lead, however a birdie from Andrew Evans on the 16 and a dropped shot from Senior on 17 saw the pair tied as he teed off on 18.
