Hendry defends Starwood in Fiji15 Jun 2013
Michael Hendry scored a final round five under par 67 today to hold off the challengers today in the final round of the Starwood Classic in Fiji.
Hendry was tied the lead with Daniel Pearce going into the final day but had the advantage of the easier Denarau course while Pearce was back at Natadola Bay.
Pearce could only manage a 76 in what once again proved to be very testing and windy conditions.
Nick Gillespie had the best score of the day with a 65 at Denarau to secure second place two back of Hendry.
Brad Shilton was alone in third after a 69, while Matt Perry made up some ground with the best round at Natadola, four under par 68, to tie fourth with Ryan Fox (68).
A couple of Australians in Steven Jeffress and Anthony Summers rounded out the top seven.
Hendry and Pearce tied in Starwood Classic14 Jun 2013
Michael Hendry and Daniel Pearce hold a narrow one shot lead over Brad Shilton in the Starwood Classic being played over the Natadola Bay and Denarau golf courses in Fiji. The final round is played tomorrow, Saturday.
However it is not as simple as that, in that Pearce has to play the difficult Natadola course tomorrow while Hendry is at Denarau.
In reality Hendry’s biggest competition looks likely to come from Shilton who is at the same venue.
