Brendan plays Casio World Open
Written by Bruce Young   
Wednesday, 26 November 2014
Brendan plays what may well be his last event of the 2014 Japan Golf Tour season, the proviso being that should he win this week then the door remains open for him to play the Golf Nippon Series event next week in Tokyo.

This week's Casio World Open in Kochi on the island of Shikoku carries a purse of just over A$2 million and although Brendan has not played this course all that well since the event moved there in 2005 from its long time home in Kagoshima, he has a good record in the event at its previous venue.

His current form suggests that this week might provide a better week for him.

After a very good 3rd place finish last week in Miyazaki, Brendan is excited about a continuation of his return to form.
Brendan frustrated but happy after near miss at Dunlop

Brendan has recorded his equal best finish of the season with a share of 3rd place behind winner Hideki Matsuyama and Hiroshi Iwata at the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Miyazaki in Japan.

Brendan tied with American Jordan Spieth for 3rd and in the process earned around A$130,000 taking him to 37th on the 2014 money list.

For Brendan it was justification of a decision to focus more heavily on applying a greater strategic plan to his game and course management.

"I'm disappointed that I came so close to winning and didn't," said Brendan this evening. "I had chances but couldn't make the ones I needed to make. I guess I should be happy but now it's still a bit raw‏.

"I had an 8 footer on 16 that I hit perfect and lipped it out. Then hit an unbelievable 4 iron into 18 that I thought was stiff but it just went over the back and I had a run at the chip and it went about 10 feet past. The putt was on line but just ran out of legs. I played better than where I finished which is disappointing."‏

Brendan will now play the Casio World Open in Kochi.
