the golden oldies!Peter

  • 23 April 2019
    Sky Sports commentator Richard Kaufman looks back at the weeks European Tour and PGA Tour action, where it was the putting from golfs old guard which left him most impressed. Last week after the Maybank Championship Malaysia, my attention was focused on a couple of youngsters who took the eye. This week, its the golden oldies!Peter Senior teed it up for the first time this season at the Perth International. Struck by a virus, he was unable to play any of the early events on the Champions Tour and so he arrived at Lake Karrinyup in Western Australia about to try something in competition he hadnt used in 29 years - a short putter! Peter Senior once again rolled back the years on the European Tour After three decades of sticking that broomhandle putter up against his chin, a style that brought him reward even as late as November 2015 when he remarkably won the Australian Masters, he was heading into the unknown.As Adam Scott managed to show in Florida at the weekend, what was all the fuss about? So well did Peter Senior putt he actually said after his third round, when he came home in a six-under-par 30, he wondered why he never changed to the short putter earlier!Senior finished inside the top-10 and was fifth in the putts per round statistics, taking on average 28.5 putts on tricky, sloping, fast greens. Vijay Singh posted his best PGA Tour finish since 2013 at PGA National It was interesting to note while Adam Scott took the spoils in Florida, another of the over 50s brigade who also liked to anchor, Vijay Singh, also managed to finish in the top-10. It makes you wonder if the anchoring ban might have done one or two players a favour.Its fair to say if there has been any weakness in the Louis Oosthuizen armoury, its been with the putter, especially over those four to five footers. Louis Oosthuizen claimed a one-shot win ahead of Alexander Levy in Perth Adopting the claw grip, he looked rock solid all week. Hes such a joy to watch when hes swinging the club, I find it remarkable that a player of that talent hadnt won outside of South Africa until Sunday since 2012! Now that his putting looks solid, dont be surprised if he wins for the first time this season on the PGA Tour.Oosthuizen is off to Doral this week for the first of the WGC events. Itll be a week of watching Sky Sports for me, before returning with two more co-sanctioned events in Thailand and India.Watch the WGC-Cadillac Championship throughout the week live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.
