Senden joins the party

Moving near the top

John Senden birdies the 12th hole in the final round of the John Deere Classic.

John Senden has joined the party near the top of the John Deere Classic. Call him fashionably late, too. Senden, who has been hanging around for most of the final round at TPC Deere Run, just went eagle-birdie on Nos. 14 and 15 to get to 19 under, one shot behind leader Troy Matteson. Senden hit his tee shot in the right rough among the trees on 15, but hit out to within inches of the hole. He tapped in for a birdie 3. Previously, Senden sank an 8-footer for an eagle 2 on the 14th hole. Senden double-bogeyed the first hole, but has since carded six birdies and an eagle. Senden won the John Deere Classic in 2006, his only PGA TOUR win. Senden is tied with Zach Johnson, who has picked up birdies on Nos. 13 and 14. Steve Stricker is two shots back, but has found trouble off the tee on No. 14.
