THE 2012 PACIFIC LINKS HAWAI’I CHAMPIONSHIP is having a Senior moment. Australian Peter Senior is the first-round leader at the Champions Tour event after putting together a 7-under 65 at Kapolei Golf Course in Kapolei, Hawaii.
“It was a good hitting round and I putted extremely well for the first 15 holes,” Senior said.
After five second-place finishes (including three playoff losses) on the 50-and-older circuit, Senior is certainly overdue for his maiden victory. Bill Glasson and Jay Don Blake, the recent winner of the Boeing Classic, are one shot back.
There are two rounds to go in the $1.8 million event. The winner will receive $270,000 and probably have a lei put around his neck.
