Senden takes early lead

It’s still very early in the opening round of the Northern Trust Open, but John Senden is your clubhouse leader -- for now.

The Aussie hit just nine fairways and 10 greens in regulation, but he scrambled well enough to make five birdies and just one bogey on his way to a 67 at Riviera.

Senden has missed each of his last three cuts, but just two years ago had a breakout season with a career-high seven top-10s and more than $2 million in earnings. Last season was a step backward for the 39-year-old, though, as he had just two top-10s.
