John Senden finished in a share of eighth place at last year's Masters and he makes his way back for another shot this week.
The Aussie may have been motivated by his fellow countryman, Adam Scott, finally winning a green jacket for Australia. Last year's top 10 was his fifth trip to Augusta National and it overtook his T35 from the year before as his best ANGC finish to-date. Senden enters the week ranked 92nd in the FedExCup standings but also on the heels of three straight missed cuts. Apr 7 - 9:31 PM

John Senden opened his title defense of the Valspar Championship with a 3-over-par 36-38=74.

Senden's form has escaped him for months now. Today's result was merely an extension of its absence. He split nine (of 13) fairways, but hit only 11 greens in regulation and corralled a lone birdie at the par-5 fifth. His only notable conversion dropped for par from 18'2" at the par-4 12th, and he squared two bogeys before walking off with a double bogey-6 at the ninth hole. This matches his highest aggregate of the season.

John Senden returns to Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course to defend his 2014 Valspar Championship.

The Aussie not only won here last year, he also finished runner-up in 2007 and again in 2008. Clearly he's a course horse. His recent form is average at best, with his only top 25 of 2015 coming at the no-cut Hyundai Tournament of Champions. The difference in 2013-14 and 2014-15 has been the flat stick. He ranked 13th in strokes gained: putting last season but is an abysmal 183rd this season.

John Senden enters the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines ranked 45th in the FedExCup standings.

Don't let the Aussie's lofty ranking fool anyone. His heavy lifting was done during the 2014 portion of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. Since the new year, he tied for 25th in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and finished 83rd in the Sony Open in Hawaii. He skipped this event last year, but tied for 27th in 2013.
Feb 4 - 10:28 PM

John Senden posted a 5-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, coming to rest just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

In his only previous trip to Kapalua, Senden manufactured only one red number, that a 71 in the finale of the 2007 edition, so today's success is a bonus. It's also a reminder of just how well he's played for the last 14 months. After trading five birdies with two bogeys through 13 holes, the Aussie strung together four pars before holing an eagle from inside six feet at the par-5 18th. His longest conversions of the walk measured 12'6" and 17'2" at the 10th and 11th holes, respectively, both dropping for birdie.

John Senden rides a moderate wave of success into the Hyundai Tournament of Champions this week.

The Aussie punched his ticket with a win in the 2014 Valspar Championship. His recent returns have included a pair of top-10 finishes in his last four outings, with the most recent a T9 in the Australian PGA Championship. He has played The Plantation Course at Kapalua in just on other outing, scoring a T19 in 2007 with nothing better than a 71 on the card.
Jan 8 - 1:07 PM

John Senden erased one bogey with five birdies and signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68 following his final round of the CIMB Classic.

It was a what-could-have-been week for the Aussie in Malaysia. He settled for an even-par 72 in the lid-lifter, and then beat 70 in each round thereafter. He'll take his form and talent to Shanghai, China for next week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions where he last played in 2012 but at Mission Hills. Sheshan International Golf Club will be hosting for the second consecutive edition.

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.
