JOHN Senden made a strong start at the PGA Championship, carding a two-under to be tied eighth and among the leading Australians after the first round.
And he got a little help from gravity along the way, making one of his three birdies courtesy of a good putt and lot of patience.
When Senden’s long-range effort for par on 16th hole hung on the lip of the cup, he walked around slowly, stretching out the 10 seconds meant to be allowed before being forced to tap it in.
After 22 seconds, just when it appeared Senden had lost hope, his ball finally fell in the hole, much to his delight.
