A chat with Alex Mercer has Brendan on track

A chat with Alex Mercer earlier this week has made a difference for Brendan during this week's Mynavi ABC Championship near Kobe, Brendan within three of the lead as the event heads into the weekend.

Brendan's long time coach and mentor has often required just a few words to get Brendan back on track and that was the case this week.

"I've been speaking to Alex Mercer the last couple of nights and he has me working on some stuff I'd forgotten about," said Brendan this evening. "I owe him a lot!"


Brendan has been using the short putter in his last couple of events for the first time for a very long time and is happy with his putting. "It has been solid and I am feeling very good about things," added Brendan.

Brendan's second round of 66 included a homeward nine of 31 and an eagle at the final hole of the day.

Brendan plays familiar venue

Brendan has returned to Japan for the remainder of the season beginning with this week's Mynavi ABC Championship at the ABC Golf Club in Hyogo Prefecture.

That essentially means a run of five events but if he was to perform well and perhaps win one of those he would then also be eligible to play the season ending Nippon Series.

Those events include this week's event, the HEIWA PGM Championship in Kasumigaura, the Mitsui Sumitomo Visa Taihiyo Masters, the Dunlop Phoenix and the Casio World Open with the Nippon Series also on the schedule should he qualify.

Either way Brendan expects to be at the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast in mid December.

This week's event was the first Brendan won on the Japan Golf Tour back in 2002 and he is hoping that a return to a venue he has done well on previously might play a role in a fast finish to the season.

"I am not 100% happy with my ball striking at present but will grind if out this week and hopefully build form with some continuity of play," said Brendan on Tuesday evening.
