New Zealand golfer Michael Hendry has won his first round PGA Tour qualifying tournament in Hawaii.

The North Harbour professional fired a final round four-under 68 at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu to win by three shots on 14-under par.

Hendry joins compatriot Danny Lee as the only New Zealanders to progress from the first stage.

Approximately 450 players will compete in second stage qualifying at six venues next month, the leading players from each venue going to the final stage of qualifying, with 156 players competing over six rounds for 25 places.
