Senden firing at 2012 Wells Fargo Championship

Senden ... seven birdies in the first round

JOHN SENDEN is just one shot off the pace after the first round of the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina.

The lanky Aussie golfer had an error free seven birdies on his card before bogeying the par four16th to finish 6-under on 66 at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte.

Sitting on top of a congested leaderboard were Americans Ryan Moore, Stewart Cink and Webb Simpson on 7-under.

Sharing second with Senden were Americans Rickie Fowler, D.A. Points and Patrick Reed, and England’s Brian Davis.

The field includes five of the world’s top ten ranked golfers with the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods Phil Mickelson and Jason Day having their first outings since the US Masters.

Aaron Baddeley was the next best Aussie on 3-under while Day, Robert Allenby were 2-under, Geoff Ogilvy 1-under, and Stuart Appleby and Gavin Coles on even.

McIlroy, back to World No.2 by a smidgin, was on 2-under, with Mickelson, Woods, Jim Furyk and Lee Westwood all on 1-under.
