Veteran golfer John Senden successfully completed his capture of only the second PGA title of his 13 years of golfing career – the Vasper Championship which was being played in Florida. The Australian golfer had been facing a rough patch for quite some time now and his only title before this came almost eight years ago when he was able to clinch the John Deere Classic in 2006. He performed really well in the end stages of the tournament and was able to beat second placed American Kevin Na.
The main attraction of his victory at the Vasper was a spectacular 68 foot chip for birdie at the par four – 16th and it was followed by another magnificent birdie before he eventually finished it with a par.
Sanden announced his title aspirations by playing a seven under par at the end of Saturday and then he began the next day just behind over night leader Robert Garrigus.
But the lead was short lived as Garrigus fell apart in the ninth, and Senden took advantage of the situation by conjuring pick up shots at the first and the fifth which made him the leader before a bogey at the seventh could stop his advances by the seventh bogey.
The 42 year old again faltered at the 12 and also in the 13 which potentially meant all over for him, but he was able to recover in order to finish the famous victory with a great birdie.
Na had begun the day just a single shot behind Garrigus and he picked up a shot on the fifth before giving it back on the sixth.
This victory has been an excellent achievement for the veteran and it can easily be said that this can the exact result which prompts a return of form.

One of the most influential golf players of all times Thomas Bjorn will be looking to make a comeback for the Ryder Cup this year. On his 43rd birthday Bjorn said that he is looking forward to playing in the Ryder Cup and hopes that he will be able to win it.
Speculations are that the 43 year old will play for the captain which the committee chooses and of which he is the chairman. He also gave a hint that he would like to play for Paul McGinley’s Europe. Bjorn also said that last year was one of the best seasons he had since 2000/2001. However the main thing is he is setting short goals for this season. He has only focused on January so far and not beyond that.
2013 as he said was one of the most successful seasons so far in his career where he won in Sun City, the Nedbank Challenge. Apart from this he also achieved second place in the World Cup. In the beginning of the season during late summers Thomas Bjorn also won in Switzerland. He lifted the European Masters and has entered the top 25 list. From the hints which he gave to the reporters it seems that currently he was preparing for Durban for the Volvo Champions tournament.
He also talked about the hard work and toil that he had to undergo in order to make this comeback and he is quite confident about this season because of the form he had last year. He also indulged himself in golf politics and soon became the chairman in 2007 for the Tournament Committee. He also believes there will be some more changes in the hierarchy of the tour. And the change will be best for the tour itself.
