Rd. 1: Van Pelt def. Senden, 6 & 5

MARANA, Ariz. -- American Bo Van Pelt, a sixth seed, defeated 11th-seeded John Senden of Australia, 6 and 5, in the first round.

Van Pelt now takes on Ian Poulter in the second round of the Snead bracket.

Van Pelt needed just one hole after Thursday's restart to end his match. He won the par-5 13th with a par, as Senden bogeyed the hole after an errant tee shot left him scrambling from the native area.

Senden did not record a birdie while suffering five bogeys on his card. He was 1 up through six holes but lost the last seven holes.

"We were kind of trading back and forth," Van Pelt said, "and (I) got on a little run right around the turn."

Van Pelt advances to the second round for the second time in three appearances here.
