Baker hoping to be British Master again!

Twelve years after he was victorious in the Dunhill British Masters played at Woburn Golf Club, and a couple of years since he played on the European Tour, his last event being the 142nd British Open Championship, Peter Baker is once again heading to the quintessentially British club to compete at the British Masters supported by Sky Sports and hosted by Ian Poulter. Having romped to a 7 stroke victory over Carl Mason, Peter lifted the then 47 year old title the second of his European Tour career only two months before his third and final victory on the main tour, to cap a stellar season and cement his place in the 1993 European Ryder Cup team. Peter hadnt had a victory on tour since his impressive playoff win against Nick Faldo to lift his first title at the Benson and Hedges International Open in 1988 but an opening round of 67 certinaly put Peter in the mix for the British Masters title, an event he was clearly keen to win, being a proud Englishman. Peter further increased his chances of taking home the silverware with a second round 64 rocketing him up the leaderboard and really into the mix for the weekends action. A third round of 72 wasn't in keeping with the scintillating golf Peter had played at the beginning of the week but no significant damage had been done and a decent final round would once again see peter in contention. What a decent round it was, not afraid to go and shoot a low number or win an event rather than wait for someone to hand it to him, Peter fired the lowest round of the week, a superb 63, to take the trophy home and establish himself as a European Tour multiple winner. This week Peter makes a return to the tour to see old friends and test his game against some of the players he has more recently been working with as an ambassador to the Euroepan Ryder Cup team as a team liaison, including Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald and Darren Clarke. Peter is also keen to get back into the professional groove as turning 50 in a few years, he has one eye firmly fixed on joining the European Senior Tour and competing with old friends including Paul Broadhurst, David Gilford and DJ Russell. Round one gets underway at Woburn on Thursday 8th October 2015, for live coverage please tune in to Sky Sports and to keep up to date with the live scores log onto the European Tour at http://www.europeantour.com/europeantour/season=2015/tournamentid=201507...
