Senior: First title in two years

Senior: First title in two years

Peter Senior rolled back the years to take a one-stroke victory at the Australian Open.

The 53-year-old Senior conquered gale force winds to see off the chasing back and secure his first title in two years.

John Senden took a two-shot lead into the final round but as was the case 12 months ago, he crumbled after holding the 54-hole lead, shooting a miserable 82 to finish in a tie for 18th.

Senior had no such troubles, erasing bogeys on the 5th and 7th with birdies on the 10th and 12th for a level-par round of 72. An overall total of four-under put him one shot clear of fellow Aussie Brendan Jones.

On a day in which play had to be suspended for three hours after conditions where deemed unplayable as balls where blown off fairways and greens and scoreboards toppled over, Senior hold firm while others faltered.

Justin Rose one of those more famous names who were unable to produce the goods when necessary. The Englishman trailed Senior by one shot with two to play, but instead of producing the birdie he needed, the world number four slipped up with a double-bogey.

As a result Rose finished one-under, tied for fourth with Kieran Pratt and Kim Felton. One shot ahead of them was Australian Cameron Percy, alone in third spot.
