Barnes hits form on Japan tour

Australian Kurt Barnes finished in a tie for second at the Ana Open on the Japanese Tour on Sunday. The 31-year-old from New South Wales carded a five-under 67 on the last day but fell just short of the grand prize, with local player Hiroyuki Fujita claiming a one-shot victory. Fujita finished with an overall score of 16 under, with his last-day 68 enough to give him the win. Barnes ended up one shot off the pace in a four-way tie, with Japan&aposs Yuta Ikeda, South Korea&aposs Hyung-Sung Kim and China&aposs Wen-Chong Liang all scoring 15 under for the tournament.
