Brendan two back at Dunlop Phoenix
Written by Bruce Young   
Friday, 21 November 2014
Brendan is just two from the lead after 36 holes of the Dunlop Phoenix event in Miyazaki in Japan.

A second round of 69 leaves Brendan two behind Hideki Matsuyama and in a share of 4th position with Jordan Spieth and In Hoi Hur separating Brendan from the leader.

Brendan shared the lead at various stages through round two and a bogey at the last did not help his cause although he is still well placed.

Brendan has taken on a new attitude on the golf course this week in terms of a more strategic approach and thus far it appears to be paying dividends.
 
Bad Sunday for Brendan at Visa Taiheiyo

Brendan has finished well back at the Mitsui Sumitomo Visa Taiheiyo Masters, slipping to a final round of 77 after being on the edge of contention earlier in the week.

Brendan began the final round five shots off the pace of David Oh and began well enough on day four before things began to unravel around the turn. A double bogey at the 9th was followed by a further five shots dropped before a birdie at the last left him with a round of 77 and a share of 37th position.

"I am not playing like I did before my injury," said Brendan today. "I'm not as consistent as I have been previously and I've been making a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes on the course. When I've been in contention I haven't been thinking as clearly as I have in the past and it just hasn't clicked for me.

 

"I know it's there, it's just a matter of being a little smarter. My putting isn't allowing me to shoot consistent scores as I'm having really good days & not so good days. Yesterday I got off to a good start but didn't make the most of my good shots. Missed from 8 feet on four and 6 feet on 8 for birdies and hit one in the water on 6 so I couldn't get any momentum going.

 

"When I hit a poor shot or was out of position I would make bogey or worse. I'm planning on making it a priority this week to improve my course management and my thinking on the course‏."

 

Brendan and the Japan Golf Tour now head south to Miyazaki on the southern island of Kyushu where the Dunlop Phoenix awaits.


Brendan did not play the Dunlop Phoenix last year but has played the golf course well in earlier times, recording top fives in each of his last two visits.
