John Senden took home the Valspar Championship with a final round one under par 70 to win by one stroke over fellow FJ Staffer, Kevin Na.  Senden shot up the leaderboard thanks to a third round 64 that left him two shy of the 54 hole lead.

Senden's Sunday chase  began with a birdie on the opening hole. Conditions, then, toughened as the winds picked up making scoring even more difficult across the brutal Copperhead course. But out in one under par 34, Senden had a chance to take home the title.  To heighten his chances at victory, he birdied two of the three difficult holes that make up the course's "Snake Pit". Adding a long two putt for par at the last gave Senden the lead in the clubhouse that sustained despite the players still on the course. 

No player could match the seven under par total giving John Senden his first PGA Tour Victory since 2006.   

"If I could just stay in the moment, I knew I was swinging well enough to give it a shake," Senden said of his chances to win.

The Australian relied on FJ Icon golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited glove en route to victory.

  • Way to squeeze out a win on a tough course in tough conditions.

  • Nice win.........Congratulations

  • Great ending and another FJ win!

  • Talk about a seesaw round of golf in the final round, this one was the best. Garrigus goes into the final day with a 2 stroke lead with Na close behind, Langley and Senden are back but not really showing anything at first and then Senden and Langley and Na all start coming thru and Garrigus losing his touch or just the pressure got to him. Then it was Senden, Na and Langley all vying for the lead until the Snake Pit. Just great golf all the way. Congrats to John on this win.

  • Made the shots when he needed to on a course that was playing very difficult. Congratulations on a well deserved victory.
