The Australian Open got under way today and it was the home favourite John Senden who is flying high at the top of the leaderboard after he shot a superb opening 66 to finish two shots clear of the chasing pack.
Senden from Queensland was out early and made the most of easy conditions and the six under target proved to be unassailable as nobody could catch him in the afternoon.
It wasn’t all plain sailing for Senden though, he started with a birdie but then had back-to-back bogeys at the second and third holes, but he recovered in fine style carding seven birdies in eleven holes from the 7th to the 17th which left him sitting on top of the pack.
Justin Rose is flying the British flag shooting a 68 finishing two back of Senden. He is level with Gareth Paddison, Richard Green, Kim Felton and Australian Brendan Jones.
Come on Justin finish the season in style!
