World number one Jordan Spieth today complimented Peter Senior on his win, saying when he's 56 he won't have Peter's passion for golf and would rather be on a beach somewhere, having a beer.
"What Peter did was really cool," was Spieth's final word.
For those Roarers who didn't rate the field, and reckoned nobody outside Australia would care, the USPGA website, widely read worldwide by multi-millions of golfers, gave Peter Senior a big rap, under the heading "Senior wins Australian Masters at age 56".
In the 19-par piece, Senior was congratulated on becoming the oldest Masters champion, three years after being the oldest Australian Open winner, and winning the Australian PGA at age 51.
Senior could only beat what's in front of him, and seeing he's ranked 755 in the world, and most of the field own better rankings than him, it was a bloody magnificent effort.
No-one has mentioned why the Australian fast bowling contingent has been a never ending story of breakdowns, especially Pat Cummins who is a dedicated trainer and gym participant, yet has been on the physio table far more than on the field.
