Adam Scott's impressive win at the Honda Classic overshadowed another breakthrough Australian performance in Florida, John Senden's T10 finish a remarkable turnaround in a tournament where he had never finished in the top-25.
In six previous appearances at the difficult PGA National course, Senden's best result had been T27 back in 2009 followed by a T36 in 2011.
Though he had never missed the cut since the tournament moved to the current host venue in 2007, it had hardly been a happy hunting ground for the Queenslander with this week's result suggesting his game may be on the improve.
The 44-year-old hasn't been at his best in the 2015/16 season with T16 at last November's Shriners Hospitals event his previous best.
Four missed cuts in eight events, including his last two on the trot, pointed to a player struggling with his game so this week's good form will be a welcome confidence boost.
With some of the season's biggest events just around the corner, including the Valspar Championship where Senden was a winner just two years ago, the 2006 Australian Open champion
will be keen to keep the momentum going.
Senden was one of three Australians to make the cut at the Honda, Scott obviously winning and Stuart Appleby finishing mid-field.
Playing on a medical exemption after back surgery last year the Victorians game has shown much improvment over the past two weeks, a final round 67 at the Northern trust Open jumping him up the leaderboard and the same result this week after a Sunday 68.
Appleby jumped over 23 players with his 2-under final round and while still outside the all important top 125 on the FedEx Cup points list is making headway into the almost $600,000 he needs to earn to retain playing rights on the TOUR.
Appleby has played six of his allowed 20 events and amassed just shy of $70,000 with another $533,000 remaining to meet his goal.
The other three Australians who began the week all missed the cut, Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Jones and Robert Allenby all well outside the 36 hole total required to play the weekend.
