Brendan optimistic despite poor weekend
Written by Bruce Young   
Monday, 23 May 2016

Brendan has finished well back at the Kansai Open Championship after a weekend that did not really reflect how well he is playing at present.

Brendan never really felt comfortable over the Hashimoto Country Club layout and struggled over the final 36 holes. With this week's Gateway to the Open Mizuno Open and the JGT Championship at Shishido Hills to come over the next two weeks, both course where Brendan has played well previously, he is keen on his prospects in the upcoming events.

"I'm playing well and am excited for the next two weeks," said Brendan on Monday.

Brendan has won the Mizuno Open on two occasions and actually shares the tournament record over the JFE Setonaikai Golf Club layout in Okayama Prefecture.


While he has not won over Shishido Hills he has finished runner-up there previously so has reason to be confident in what lies ahead. The Gateway to the Open Mizuno Open also acts as the Japan Tour's Final Qualifying for the Open Championship, hence the name.

Brendan bounced back from his slow start at the Kansai Classic to record a round of 71 and just make the cut.

It provides Brendan the opportuity to build momentum over the weekend ahead of a couple of bigger events coming up and although this is not a golf course on which he feels comfortable he is keen to build on his start over the final two rounds.
