Aussies gumming up leaderboard


LOS ANGELES – Three Australians start play this morning tied for the lead after the first round of the Northern Trust Open.

Aussies Robert Allenby, Aaron Baddeley and John Senden all shot 4-under-par 67s to get into that logjam atop the leaderboard.

What’s up with the Aussies at Riviera Country Club?

“Maybe looking at all the big gum trees around the golf course makes this feel like we’re at home,” Senden cracked.
