Chalk One Up for the Old Guys

If you didn't watch the Australian Masters because Adam Scott wasn't a factor -- his driver deserted him this week -- you missed seeing a bit of history.

You see, all 56-year-old Peter Senior did was win his third Australian Masters gold jacket.

Peter Senior

Peter is no stranger to making history. In 2010 he won the Australian PGA Championship at age 51. Then in 2012 he won the Australian Open -- the event Jordan Spieth won last year -- at age 53.

And now he's won the Australian Masters again -- 20 years after his second win -- by 2 shots. Do you understand what he's done? He's won all three legs of the Australian Triple Crown in his 50s. That's just impressive beyond belief.

Just as a side note, one of the three players who finished in second place was amateur Bryson DeChambeau, who won both the NCAA Division I championship and the US Amateur this year. This finish certainly bodes well for him. He left school to try and play his way into shape for Augusta next year before turning pro, and this is definitely a good start.

In the meantime you'll probably be hearing plenty about this over the next week because it's just such an unusual accomplishment. Peter has yet to win on the Champions Tour... but I'm pretty sure this win will minimize his disappointment!
