New Zealander Michael Hendry's rare foray onto the European Tour has been a fruitful one.

Japan Tour-based Hendry finished in a share of 13th place at the co-sanctioned China Open after closing with a four-under 68 in Beijing.

He climbed more than 20 places on Sunday, finishing seven shots off the pace on 10-under.

While compatriot Ryan Fox missed the cut by a shot, Hendry earned himself prizemoney of 39,637 euros ($NZ63,000).

France's Alexander Levy won the tournament for a second time, beating South African Dylan Frittelli in the first hole of a play-off after both closed on 17-under.
