Peter has another Senior Moment in Sunshine 

Coast Masters
Australian Masters champion Peter Senior has continued a successful summer back home, taking out the inaugural Sunshine Coast Masters title with a final round score of 5-under par to finish on 14-under par over the four rounds.

The unique event saw PGA Legend Professionals compete at three separate E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour pro-ams throughout the week where the players with the best three aggregate score contested the final round at Twin Waters Golf Club, where their score would then be added to result in a four-round combined score. 
Hosting the Legends over the week have been the Sunshine Coast courses Noosa Golf Club, Peregian Springs Golf Club and Twin Waters in Queensland.
Starting the day at 9-under par, Senior was five shots clear of his nearest rival Tim Elliot who fired a three-under round at the Cricks Twin Waters Pro-Am to move up the overall series leaderboard. Also in the lead group was Richard Backwell who was the outright winner at the same event and one shot behind Elliot on the overall standings.
Already a winner this week at the Noosa Legends Pro-Am and narrowly missing out in a play-off at the Australian Legends Championship at Byron Bay, Senior was at his consistent best.
"This has been a great week for me and I can only congratulate all the players on the performances this week in making it a wonderful series of events," said Senior.
"It's great to have golf on the map in the area again and thanks has to go to Ian Baker-Finch for his efforts in getting this off the ground with the host golf clubs."
Senior will now look to take a break over the Christmas period before returning to the US at the end of January to compete on the Champions Tour for the 2016 season.
