With eyes wide shut Peter O’Malley sharing 2015 Scottish Senior Open lead

Peter O'Malley Featured

A REVITILISED Peter O’Malley shared the lead of the Prostate Cancer UK Scottish Senior Open after the first round at the Archerfield Golf Links, revealing to locals he still keeps his eyes closed on short putts.

The former Scottish Open winner started his round on the tenth and was level par after ten holes before he eagled the second after hitting a seven iron to 20 feet. He went on to birdie the fifth but then dropped a shot at the short eighth.

He finished with a 2-under 70 to share the lead with English duo Gary Marks and David J Russell.

“I was one of those grinding days,” said the three-time European Tour winner. “I’m trying a new putting grip this week and it seemed to work. I decided to go left hand down and it seemed to help me hit the putts a lot more solid. I holed out really well which is what you’ve got to do in this weather.

“I don’t know if I should tell you guys this but I also hit the short putts with my eyes shut,” he revealled. “I have done for about six years. I line it up and then close my eyes just before I take it away. I have to. I got to the stage I couldn’t take the putter away so I had to try something. It’s worked because I certainly make a lot more than I miss.”

O’Malley is in his debut year on the European Senior Tour having turned 50 in June. This is just his fourth senior tour start with his best finish a T11 at the Swiss Seniors Open in July.

The next best placed Aussie is Peter Fowler, who shot a 2-over 74 to be sitting tied for 25th.
