Senden wins Valspar to end 7-year drought
PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — John Senden ended more than seven years without a victory by making two late birdies, including a chip-in from 70 feet on the toughest hole at Innisbrook, for a one-shot victory on a wild and windy Sunday at the Valspar Championship.
Senden, two shots behind going into the final round, closed with a 1-under 70 for his first PGA Tour win since the 2006 John Deere Classic. The timing couldn’t have been better. The victory sends the 42-year-old Australian to the Masters next month. Senden finished at 7-under 277.
Kevin Na had a long birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff, but it never came close. He closed with a 72.
