Aussie Peter Senior signing off on PGA Tour Champions

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Australian golfer Peter Senior is quitting the PGA Tour Champions after seven seasons in which he failed to win a tournament.

Golf Australia's website on Wednesday quoted his longtime coach, Gary Edwin, as saying Senior will retire to the Gold Coast south of Brisbane and quit touring because of injuries to both elbows.

Edwin said Senior expects to continue playing tournaments in Australia, adding ''I think he's made a decision with (wife) June that it's about time.''

Senior won more than $5.4 million on the U.S. 50-over tour, with 40 top-10 finishes but no trophies.

A winner of 34 professional tournaments, Senior's victories include the Australian Open at The Lakes in Sydney in 2012 and the Australian Masters at Huntingdale in 2015.
