Why Is No One Talking About John Senden?

Yes, yes, I know. Martin Kaymer has a major and Jordan Spieth has "it," and both are tied for the lead. Sergio already has one TPC and is only 3 shots back, a very real threat today.

But why is no one talking about John Senden? He's just 3 back too!

John Senden

John Senden is #54 in the OWGR and #15 in FedExCup points. He won the Valspar Championship in mid-March. This season he's #16 in Ballstriking, #43 in Scrambling, #22 in Strokes Gained Putting and #8 in Total Putting... and he's doing even better this week. Only 3 players scored better than him on Saturday -- and none of them were named Jordan, Martin, or Sergio.

And he'll be going out in the next-to-last group with Sergio, just ahead of Jordan and Martin. He could really make some noise there.

So why isn't anybody talking about him???

Here's a short video interview he did after his round. (If it didn't embed properly, you can find it on the video page. You can also click his name on the leaderboard and get a link to it.) He doesn't sound uncomfortable in this position:

Look, I'm not predicting anything. Three shots is a lot to overcome on the last day of THE PLAYERS, and there are lots of players capable of going low today. But it's not unusual for someone to come out of the pack and shoot, say, 66 in tough conditions and steal the thunder.

John Senden has gotten himself into position and nobody is talking about him. I'm just saying...
