John Senden makes double-eagle at Deutsche Bank Championship
NORTON, Mass. -- John Senden made a double-eagle 2 on the 562-yard, par-5 second hole in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Saturday.
It was the third double-eagle on the PGA Tour in 2009. Senden used a 4-iron for the 250-yard shot.
"It landed about maybe 10 yards on the green and rolled right in," said Senden, who carded a 7-under 64 and was at 9-under for the tournament, three behind leaders Jim Furyk and Sean O'Hair. "I didn't see it go in, but it looked like it was just going to roll to the back of the green or just over the back, and then when I saw the cheers go up, I knew it was in the hole, so it was exciting."
Senden said he'd had one other double-eagle, at a state open event in his native Australia.
