John Senden Lofts Up, Wins Valspar Championship with TaylorMade Golf SLDR 12-Degree Driver

Australian Lofts Up to Win Event, Punches Ticket to Augusta

(CARLSBAD, Calif.) – Entering the final round trailing the leaders by two strokes, TaylorMade Golf Tour staff professional John Senden (@JohnSendenGolf) battled windy conditions and multiple lead changes to emerge victorious, posting a 72-71-64-70 277 total to capture the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida by one stroke.

In the same week that saw the first-ever 14 degree driver available at retail, Senden further validated the need to loft up for longer, straighter drives, playing his TaylorMade SLDR 430 Driver lofted up to 12 degrees to attack the narrow fairways in breezy conditions. On the greens, Senden buckled down to make critical putts down the stretch with his Ghost Tour Monte Carlo putter.

The win is Senden’s second career PGA Tour victory and first since the 2006 John Deere Classic. With the victory, Senden is projected to move from 83rd to 14th in the FedExCup standings.

TaylorMade was the No. 1 driver, fairway, hybrid and iron brand played at the event.

In Senden’s Bag:
* SLDR 430 Driver (12°)
* RBZ Tour Fairway (14.5°)
* Tour Preferred (2011) MB Irons (3-PW)
* Ghost Tour Monte Carlo Putter
