Senior wins back-to-back titles

GOLF: Retirement looks good on Queenslander Peter Senior.

The former professional golfer returned to Bargara this week to win his second-straight Legends Pro-Am at the course.

But he didn't have it all his own way.

The three-time Australian Masters winner shot a 69 on the first day to be one shot behind two golfers.

Showing his true class, Senior responded on Wednesday's final round to shoot a 65 and win by two shots over Martin Pettigrew.

John Onion, who shot 140 overall, finished third ahead of four golfers who finished in a tie for fourth.

Senior said it was good to come back after retiring from the sport professionally last year.

"I really enjoy coming to Bargara,” Senior said.

"The course really suits my game and the condition of the course was outstanding, especially given the dry conditions in this part of the state.”

Senior wasn't the only former professional golfer in action last week.

Rodger Davis, the 1986 Australian Open champion, competed and shot a 69 on the second day to finish inside the top 25.

Tomas Mezera, who won the 1988 Bathurst 1000, finished inside the top 30.
