Kiwi golfer Hendry 12th on Japan Tour

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 1/05/2016

New Zealand's Michael Hendry has fallen five places on the final day to settle for 12th at the Japan Golf Tour event in Nagoya.

Hendry shared second place following the opening round of the Crowns tournament but gradually lost ground to tally even-par.

His final-round one-over 71 left him 10 shots behind Korean winner Kyung-Tae Kim.

It was the best performance of the season to date for fourth-ranked Kiwi golfer Hendry, who had placed outside the top-50 in his first three appearances of the season.

In Beijing, Ryan Fox lifted himself off the bottom rung of golfers with a closing five-under 72 at the European Tour's China Open.

Fox finished 63rd on even-par, 22 strokes behind Chinese winner Li Haotong.

Meanwhile, Kiwis Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson are also well off the pace at the weather-hit US PGA Tour event in New Orleans.

The Zurich Classic has been halted numerous times and officials reduced it to 54 holes when heavy rain washed out proceedings on Sunday.

Lee will resume on Monday at four-under through 13 holes of his third round in a share of 50th. Wilkinson is three-under through 12 holes.

American Brian Stuard shared the lead with Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas on 13-under. Both had played five holes.
