Who could upstage the big names this week at Kingston Heath?
The favourites for the 2012 Talisker Australian Masters are reasonably straight forward, but there are a few other golfers who have a good chance of causing an upset this week. Starting with one of the elder statesmen of Australian golf, Peter Senior.
Peter Senior $41
Peter Senior is definitely considered senior these days but he can still mix it with his juniors. The two-time Australian Masters champion (1991, 1995) finished 15th on the Champions Tour this year and included 18 top-25’s from his 23 starts. As consistent and resilient as anyone else in the field, Senior is a sneaky chance of winning a third gold jacket.
Alistair Presnall $23
Michael Hendry $51
Kiwi Michael Hendry has had a great year with a number of victories including the New Zealand PGA Championship earlier this year. Hendry has just come off two top-10 finishes including a fantastic fourth place at the Perth International and will arrive at Kingston Heath with confidence.
Scott Laycock $81
