Golfer Mike Hendry has missed an automatic qualifying spot for this year's Open Championship in Scotland by a stroke.

Hendry had been in a tie for the lead early in the final round of qualifying in Japan, with the top four earning a spot in the major.

But he closed with a three-over par round of 75, to finish tied for fifth.
