I T MIGHT have taken John Senden 139 starts to break into the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour, but he’d be the first to tell you his victory at the 2006 John Deere Classic was well worth the wait. The Queenslander shot a pair of 64s on Thursday and Saturday around TPC Deere Run to ultimately win by one shot over a field that included some of the world’s best players. “I’ve been dreaming of this for a long time,” Senden said. “It is something of a dream that you can go out there and say, ‘hey look, I am a PGA Tour winner now’... It’s really exciting.” Senden’s success added to the terrific season Australians were already having on the PGA Tour; four others had lifted silverware that year, including Geoff Ogilvy, who won the US Open at Winged Foot. “It has been exciting for Australian golf, the US Open was extra special,” Senden said. “It is going to be a good second half of the year.” Adam Scott made that prediction a reality, winning the Tour Championship in November, before Senden himself claimed the Australian Open at Royal Sydney. Eight years later Senden won the Valspar Championship and added another trophy from the PGA Tour to his cabinet. Now 46, he is currently taking a leave of absence to be with his teenage son who is battling a brain tumour.
