Hendry Tracking Troon Trip29 May 2016
Although he missed out on sectional qualifying for the US Open earlier in the week, Michael Hendry is giving himself every chance of making the Open Championship at Royal Troon in July. Current tied with Kyung-Tae Kim for the lead on -12 in the Gateway to the Open Mizuno Open, thanks to a stunning seven under par 3rd round 0f 65, Hendry is in line not only to win the tournament but also to secure one of the four Open Championship qualifying spots on offer. He started with three straight birdies, and will be looking for a similar effort today in the final round. David Smail and Eddie Lee are also playing and are at T43 on even par.
Over in the USA, Danny Lee is heading for another solid performance, currently lying T24 on -3 at Colonial, nine shots behind leader Jordan Spieth. Tim Wilkinson also made the cut, but slipped with a 3rd round 77.
Peter Fowler is at -5, T25 in the Senior PGA Championship, also 9 shots behind leader Rocco Mediate, with Colin Montgomery closing a couple of shots behind. Grant Waite had a forgettable 79 after making the cut at -4.
