Brendan heads for two week break
Written by Bruce Young   
Monday, 13 October 2014
As Brendan heads for a two week break back in Canberra he looks back on the weekend where he made a signficant equipment change.

After a lengthy period of frustration on the greens Brendan made the decision to adopt the short putter and was pleasantly surprised how it went.

"I actually putted quite well," said Brendan from Narita airport. "I hit quite a few putts that I left short but in in the middle but I had fun and think I may stick with it."


Because of his absence from the Tour Brendan was not qualified to play in this coming week's Japan Open and so rather than go through the process of applying for an invite decided to take a two week break after four weeks on the road.


Brendan's next event therefore will be the Myanavi ABC Championship beginning on October 30th following which he will play the remaining events on this season' schedule and then the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast in mid December

Frustration sets in for Brendan

Brendan has safely made the cut at the Toshin Golf Tournament in Gifu but he left the course today as frustrated as he has been in some time in not being able to convert opportuities.

"I have putted diabolically over the first two rounds," said Brendan tonight. "It is one of the easier courses we play as the scoring would suggest and if you are not putting well around here you get lost.

"I'm struggling to see a line at the moment and then when I do I can't put the ball on it.  It's a shame that I have actually found my long game this week‏ but the rest is letting me down.


"Tomorrow I am planning to give th short putter a go as I have to find a solution as I m not enjoying my time on the course when things are like this."


Brendan is in 18th position at 8 under and nine shots from the lead although he is oly six shots out of seocnd position.


Hopefully Brendan can get improvement on the greens over the weekend as he heads home to Canberra on Sunday night for a two week break and then returns for some of the bigger money events on the Japan Tour.
