As much fun as it was seeing geezer Peter Senior compete with the flatbellies in recent weeks Down Under, it doesn't sound like that'll be the case this summer since the Australian Open winner earned a spot in the WGC at Firestone.
The Aussie Golfer featured Senior's quote...
"Already last week I got into the World Championship at Firestone but I won’t be playing. Firestone is just ridiculously long for me. I played Doral two years ago, it all depends, yeah I am quite happy to go back to Doral, it’s not overly long and I feel that I can play there. But Firestone, some of the holes they have really taken back. I don’t want to blaze away for four days and be 55th and that is pretty much how it would be because the course just doesn't set-up for me."
"Holes like number eight, when I first played Firestone back in 1990 that was the first time I ever played it, that was like driver - seven iron, now I’d be going in with driver rescue, the greens are so small and nearly every hole that I'm hitting I'm landing onto the uphill in the fairway and I just stay there, all the other guys are carrying the hills and getting 30-40 yards run and they are going in with a nine and eight iron."
Prompting the Aussie Golfer to ask a fair question: Whatever happened to the days when the old could compete against the young on the golf course?
Maybe all of that core work the young guys are doing?
