In-form Hendry fifth at Japan Tour event

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 1/07/2016

New Zealand's Michael Hendry is maintaining his hot form on the Japan Golf Tour, sitting in a share of seventh at the midway point of the latest event in Chitose.

Hendry is on five-under, four shots behind co-leaders Hideto Tanihara and Thanyakon Khrongpha at the Shigeo Nagashima Invitational.

Hendry has finished in the top five in each of his last three tournaments to surge to seventh on the Tour's money list with earnings of 25 million yen ($NZ341,408.83).

The 36-year-old is also a chance to qualify alongside Danny Lee as a second Kiwi golfer at the Rio Olympics. However, he needs strong results over the next two weeks to overhaul Ryan Fox.
