Sparkling run continues

Former first-class cricketer Aucklander Michael Hendry, 3, has won the million-dollar Indonesia Open at Damai Indah golf club in Jakarta. In-form Hendry, who won the Fiji Open two weeks ago, finished with a four-round aggregate of 269, 19 under par, walking away with the $18, winner’s cheque. “This feels surreal. It will take some time to sink in,” Hendry said. “I was on fire out there today. I have worked really hard on my game over the past year and it has paid off. I know my mortgage is now going to be a lot smaller.” Hendry played cricket for New Zealand’s under-19 cricket team and later represented Auckland before opting to focus on golf when he was 24. He became a member of the paid ranks in 24. He is currently enjoying a sparkling run, winning back-to-back titles on New Zealand’s domestic Tour in May and leading the money list in New Zealand – an award he claimed last year for the first time.
