Peter Cooke – Work hard / Play hard

Ranked 40th on the PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit, Peter Cooke has played 9 events in 2014 earning $28,068.67

A member of the Royal Adelaide Golf Club, Cooke was selected for the South Australian Men’s State Team from 2002-2007 and Captained the side in 2006.

Cooke turned professional in 2008, but has spent much of his time playing part-time and working for a cargo company at Adelaide airport just to make ends meet.

Cooke’s best result was at the US$2million Perth international at Lake Karrinyup in 2012 after firing a second round 66. He went on to finish tied 28th winning $15,466.28 in the process.

Cooke missed the cut by two shots at the 2013 Australian Open with rounds of 73-74 (+3). A top 20 finish in 2014 would be a great boost to his career and with a T2 finish at the recent WA PGA Championship its an achievable pursuit.
