David Bransdon was the only Australian to survive all 72 holes of a brutally difficult Fujisankei Classic on the Japan Tour at the weekend.
A rookie in Japan this season, Bransdon scraped into the weekend on the number with a birdie at the 15th hole of his second round then moved up the standings over the final two days.
His eventual T33 finish was a good effort, particularly his Sunday round of 69 which moved him more than 20 places up the leaderboard.
The cut for the tournament came at 5-over-par, testament to the difficulty of the course, and the winning score was just 3-under.
Adam Bland and Matt griffin both missed the 36 hole cut by a stroke while Brendan Jones and Won Joon Lee were two outside the number.
Michael Hendry missed by three after back to back rounds of 75.
