Peter Senior confirms retirement


Australian golfer Peter Senior has confirmed his retirement from golf after a 40-year career due to suffering hip problems.

The 57-year-old veteran was on the course at the Australian Open on Thursday and managed to complete his first round. However, he was forced off the field after five holes of his second round, before immediately deciding to call it a day as a professional player.

Senior won 34 tournaments in his career, with the majority of them coming on the PGA Tour and Japan Tour. But with his hip issues causing so much trouble, he feels there’s no other option other than to quit the game.

Speaking to reporters, Senior said: "This will be my last professional golf tournament. It's just horrendous, I can't hit a golf shot out there. It's no good me being out there annoying the other guys because they're playing pretty well so this is it for me. I'm not playing any more golf.

"I've had a great run, a great career. I've enjoyed every minute of it. "I don't enjoy playing like this. I can't hit a shot. Every time I hit the ball I get a bolt of pain through my hip."


We wish Peter Senior all the best in the future, whatever he decides to do next.
