Henley can get his quest back on track

Senden could be left trailing in his wake

Russell Henley can make a recovery in round two
1 of 1

Sky Sports 4, 8pm

Russell Henley needs to improve significantly if he is going to be a factor at the CareerBuilder Challenge this week, but he can make up some ground by getting the better of John Senden in their second-round twoball (5.20pm GMT).

Henley shot a disappointing one-over-par total in his opening round when he and Senden tackled the Nicklaus course in this three-track event.

He will have been particularly disappointed to have finished the round with three bogeys, while his playing partner climbed to one under after two late birdies.

It can be trying for professionals to deal with the slow play caused by them being accompanied by chief executives and other rich and famous amateurs in the four-ball structure.

However, Henley came into the tournament in decent form, having finished tied for 13th at the Sony Open where he is a previous champion and should be able to put those late mistakes behind him when playing the tougher Stadium Course.

His putting skills should stand him in good stead, while Senden has been going through a period of indifferent form.

The Australian finished 18th at the USPGA Championship but that is the only time he has claimed a top-20 spot since May.

And while he has claimed four top-ten finishes in 14 attempts at La Quinta, the last one was in 2012 and he has had two poor finishes (65th and 69th) and a missed cut since.

Recommendation
R Henley to win twoball
1pt 10-11 Hills, Ladbrokes
