Brendan chasing game time in Fukushima
Written by Bruce Young   
Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Brendan is in Fukushima, about 200 kilometres north of Tokyo for this week's Dunlop SRIXON Fukushima Open as he chases more game time after his lengthy, injury enforced break away from the tournament scene.

 

Following an encouraging effort at the recent Sega Sammy Cup in Hokkaido where he made the cut in what was essentially his first tournament since last September.

 

This week's tournament is a new event and while carrying only a relatively small purse many of the Japan Tour's leading players are in the field because of the limited amount of events to date on the Japan Tour.

 

Brendan is managing his wrist well enough and as long as he takes pain killers it is not causing any concern.

 

"It felt good out there said Brendan this week referring to both his golf and the wrist."

 

A new caddie will be on Brendan's bag this week, Brendan Russell, his former caddie needing to work for another player during Brendan's absence and staying on with that player.



Brendan will play this event, then the Fiji International in Fiji before returning to Japan for a busy end of season schedule beginning in late August.

 
Brendan to play Fiji International

Brendan will play the Dunlop Fukushima Srixon Open beginning next Thursday as he chases continuity of play ahead of what will hopefully be a busy end to the season. 

 

Having played just two events this season, one of those where he was forced to wthdraw after round one, Brendan is keen to get as much play as possible especially now there appears to be no real discomfort from the wrist injury and surgery.

 

This week's event is one of the lower prizemoney events in Japan this season but Brendan realises the need to get tournament play under his belt ahead of a the bigger events in Japan from September on.

The stop start nature of the Japan Tour means there will be no further event until the end of August and so Brendan will take advantage of an invite to play the OneAsia and PGA Tour of Australasia's Fiji International in mid August.
