John Senden wins Valspar Championship to end 13-year PGA Tour title drought
John Senden was able to celebrate only his second PGA Tour title victory in 13 years after coming out on top at the Valspar Championship in Florida.
The 42-year-old Australian won by a single shot to defeat American Kevin Na after a one-under par 70 left him seven under.
Senden, who tasted prior success in 2006 at the John Deere Classic, holed a 68-foot chip for birdie on the 16th, which was followed by another birdie on 17.
Luke Donald finished in joint fourth, three shots behind the lead, after closing his game with a 70.
"It's something that makes you believe more that you can get it done again, rather than just once and thinking back then in `06, `Was it a flash in the pan?' I don't believe so," said a jubilant Senden. "But now it makes me feel (validated) from the John Deere."
