John Senden tied for 18th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open two weeks ago and makes his second start of the 2014-15 season at the CIMB Classic.

Senden picked up his second PGA TOUR win at the Valspar Championship in March and added three other top-10 finishes since then. He did not tee it up at Kuala Lumpur G&CC last season, but this is potentially a good fit for his game. The course seems to favor solid ball-strikers, which as long been a calling card of his game.

John Senden returns to the TOUR Championship for his fourth look at East Lake Golf Club.

Senden's best FedExCup finish came in 2011 when he finished 13th at season's end. The Aussie has already set a career best in money earned during this season, and will have a chance to eclipse that 2011 FEC finish, as he enters the week ranked 17th. With finishes of 26th or better in four of his last five events, Senden has found some form ahead of this week's showdown with East Lake GC.

John Senden conjured up a bogey-free 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the new clubhouse leader at 11-under 273.

The Aussie started slowly, picking up a birdie from 11'4" on the par-3 third hole to go with nine pars on his first 10 holes at TPC Boston. He heated up late, adding birdies from 56'5", 18'4", 26'6" and 1'9" on the 11th, 12th, 15th and 18th holes. While it is highly unlikely that his number will stand up to those still on the course, he has cracked the top 20 in the FedExCup standings which could eventually result in a trip to the TOUR Championship.

John Senden spun a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of The Barclays and is the first man in the clubhouse at 5-under 279.

The Aussie dropped three of his six birdies from outside of 13 feet, highlighted by a 43'4" birdie at the par-3 15th. He surrendered just one bogey on his lap around Ridgewood CC. The ball-striking was solid, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 15 GIR. He also gained more than a stroke with his putter. He began his FedExCup Playoff quest in the 26th spot in the standings, and it appears he will end the first leg in about the same place. At this point, he is considered a lock to qualify for the Deutsche Bank Championship and BMW Championship, but is very much on the bubble for the TOUR Championship.

John Senden polished off his opening round of The Barclays with four birdies to post 3-under-par 36-32=68.

Let this be a lesson that a round of golf isn't over until it's over. Senden complete his first 14 holes in birdie-free 1-over before running the table at holes 15-18. The longest conversions measured 25'1" and 16'4" at the par-4 16th and 18th holes, respectively. Overall, the renown ball-striker split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He's the only golfer in FedExCup Playoffs history to advance to the TOUR Championship three times after starting outside the top 30 in points. Four others have done it twice. Senden won't be able to turn that trick again this time around since he begins 26th in the standings, but a trip to East Lake is no guarantee, either.

John Senden turns his attention to Firestone Country Club's South Course for this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Aussie is 17-for-21 on the season, with a win and three other top 10s to his name. That's good enough for 25th in the FedExCup standings, securely positioned for a deep run in the Playoffs. The Firestone CC history is mediocre, finishing T16 last year, and 45th in his 2007 debut. With a stacked field like we have this week, gamers should only take notice of Senden in the deeper formats.

John Senden returns to the John Deere Classic for his 12th start at TPC Deere Run.

The 2006 winner is 7-for-11 in his John Deere Classic career. Other than his victory, he also sports three additional top-15 finishes at TPC Deere Run. The Aussie enters the week ranked 22nd in the FedExCup standings, but has missed his last two cuts. With two weeks of rest, look for Senden to bounce back this week in Silvis, Illinois.

John Senden conjured a bogey-free 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational to end his week inside the top 10 at 7-under 273.

The Aussie offset 16 pars with just two birdies, both falling from outside of 30 feet. Though he hit just nine GIR, he gained well over four strokes with the flat stick and ranked second in SGP for the week at the time of his posting. Senden has traditionally been known as an excellent ball-striker and a below-average putter, but that trend is changing this year. He entered this week ranked 31st in SGP.

John Senden crafted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, improving to 5-under 205 for the tournament.

Senden's six birdies included bids from 17'4", 35'3", 17'4" on the fifth, sixth and 17th holes. He spread a pair of bogeys, one on each nine, throughout his trot around Colonial Country Club. The Aussies has four consecutive top-30 finish, two inside the top 11, and is well on his way to posting another respectable return. He landed 13 GIR and gained over two strokes with the flat stick on Saturday.

John Senden vaulted up the leaderboard with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, ending the tournament at 6-under 274.

Senden bombarded Las Colinas with eight birdies but gave four of those strokes back along the way. His 6-under aggregate surely won't stand as he's seven shots off the current leader on the course but will enjoy his stint as the clubhouse leader while it lasts. This top-25 finish will go down as another bullet point on the Aussie's fantastic comeback season.
May 18 - 2:53 PM

John Senden lapped TPC Sawgrass in 4-under-par 33-35=68 during the third round of THE PLAYERS to take the clubhouse lead at 9-under 207.

The Aussie lit up the par 5s to the tune of three birdies and a 75'10" chip-in eagle at the ninth, then added a 58'6" chip-in birdie on the par-3 third. He gave back bogeys at the par-4 fourth and par-3 13th holes. Known for his ball-striking, it's not a surprise that he could feast on the par 5s. In fact, he ranks inside the top five in driving accuracy and GIR this week. Considering he won his second PGA TOUR title at the Valspar Championship in Florida earlier this season, perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that he's contending this week as well.
May 10 - 6:02 PM

John Senden submitted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 for his second round of THE PLAYERS.

Senden was vintage today in striping 11 (of 14) fairways and hitting 15 greens in regulation. His only hiccup occurred at the par-5 ninth where he couldn't find the putting surface until his fifth shot and settled for bogey, but he picked off four birdies elsewhere to post 5-under 139 at the halfway point. That's seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. All of today's par breakers ranged longer than 10 feet, the highlight measuring 19'1" at the par-5 16th. Despite his profile, the Aussie arrived this week a mere 5-for-11 with only one top-35 finish (T22, 2005) at TPC Sawgrass. He's also never scored better than 69 (now three times) in 34 career rounds.
May 9 - 1:12 PM

John Senden looks to continue his good play this week at THE PLAYERS.

Senden is locked in right now hitting 64.76% of fairways, 69.08% of greens, and sporting a 0.474 strokes gained-putting average on the season. He hasn't missed a cut since the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in early February. The Aussie is 7-for-7 in that stretch with four top 30s, including a victory at the Valspar Championship.
