He comes home to Brisbane and heads for keperra country Golf club where he honed his incredible skills. Recently, Senden spent time playing golf with his dad Gerry and a number of juniors including son Jacob. Then he volunteered his time to present trophies and prizes to delighted juniors at the Greg Norman Golf Foundation’s 36-hole Titleist Winter classic. “It’s always good to be back here at keperra,” Senden told Inside Golf. “I came home for a mid-year break to see the family, catch up with Ian Triggs (coach) and help out at keperra with the junior event,” he said. “I like to keep in touch with what happens at home and at the club. “and I think it’s a good break to get away from the tour.” Senden was the centre of attention at the presentation of trophies with the juniors and parents alike. He engaged with and encouraged some of the winners including 17-year-old Blake Dowling from Isis Golf club in central Queensland and coolangatta Tweed Heads Golf club’s Samantha Foley, 16. after the presentation, Senden spent an hour signing autographs and having his photo taken with the stars of the future. Dowling, who is as tall as Senden at 6’3” (190.5cm), easily won the major male competition with rounds of 72-72 for a 144 total – eight shots clear of Sam Luton of Pacific Golf club in Brisbane. Foley won the major female competition with rounds of 80-72–152. Sanctuary cove’s karis Davidson (77-79) finished runner-up – four shots back. Both winners, Dowling and Foley, complimented keperra on the excellent condition of the golf course.
