Brendan improves sharply at Mizuno Open
Written by Bruce Young   
Friday, 29 May 2015
Brendan has improved sharply on recent form with a second round of 67 at the Gateway to the Open Mizuno Open and heading into the weekend he trails the leaders by only two shots.

The Setonakai Golf Club layout is one on which Brendan has experienced success previously having won this tournament on two occasions.

His no bogey five under par round was highlighted by much improved putting and with the added bonus of a place at the Open Championship at St Andrews up for grabs to the leading four players this week not otherwise qualified it adds another dimension to the closing 36 holes.
Brendan chasing third Mizuno Open

Brendan is playing the Gateway to the Open Mizuno Open this week as he looks to get his 2015 Japan Tour season moving forward in a positive direction. It has been one of Brendan's slowest starts on the JGT since he joined back in 2001 but this is an event and a golf course he has played well on previously and one he looks to do well in this week.

Not only is the title at stake this week but by its very name the event is a qualifier for the Open Championship and if Brendan is able to finish in the first four players not already exempt for the Open Championship at St Andrews then he will be on his way to Scotland in mid July.

Brendan has won the Mizuno Open on two previous occasions in 2004 and 2013 and enjoys the layout at the JFE Setonakai Golf Club in Okayama.

This is the third of four consecutive events in this campaign for Brendan, next week's JGT Championship the final before a break back in Canberra.
