New Zealand's Michael Hendry finished in a share of 24th place at the Korean Open on the One Asia Tour after a two-over par 73 in the final round at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club.

Hendry, whose best result on tour this year came when he finished one shot away from defending his Indonesian Open title, managed rounds of 75, 73, 70 and 73 for a seven over par total.

The North Harbour pro earned $8600 for his week as he finished 23 shots behind American Rickie Fowler, who emphatically claimed his first career victory and was 16 udner for the tournament.

Hendry remains in seventh position on the One Asia Order of Merit after earning $180,000 from seven events in 2011.
