A double bogey on the 16th hole has put a dent in an otherwise promising day for Michael Hendry at the Fiji International golf tournament.

The New Zealand number four was in a tie for seventh deep into today's second round at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Club, only to get into trouble on the 16th and drop two shots to card an even par 72 for the day.

After posting 70 yesterday, Hendry's halfway total is good enough to be in a tie for 12th, six shots behind Australian leader Jake Higginbottom - who has a two-shot cushion over compatriots Cameron Smith, Andrew Dodt and Steve Jeffress.

Fellow Kiwi and Auckland professional Ryan Fox was level with Hendry on one-under with two holes remaining.
