Profile

North Harbour professional Michael Hendry shot to international prominence when he carded a final round 65 to win the Indonesian Open on the OneAsia Tour in 2010.
 
But that was only the start for Hendry who has since qulaified for the Japan Golf Tour and retained his card for the 2014 season.
 
 
His sweetest win came when when he claimed the inaugural New Zealand PGA Pro-Am Championship at The Hills by two shots.
 
The 34-year-old shot a four under par 68 in the final round for his breakthrough win at home.
 
in 2013 Hendry went on to make history at The Hills when he defended his NZ PGA Championship title and in 2014 he will be among the frontrunners to win the NZ Open in Queenstown.
 
Hendry is a former Auckland cricket rep, who has won four times on the Charles Tour in New Zealand, before taking his game to the world stage.
 
 He paid tribute to the Charles Tour for his international success.
 
"The Charles Tour taught me how to play four round events and handle the pressure of the week. It gave me some opportunities to win and regardless of the level you are playing at winning is a habit. It is a big learning curve knowing how to win and the pressure of being the leader at a Charles Tour event builds that experience and knowledge how to do it. It is the same skills on the bigger stages around the world. It is the same process and when I was playing cricket and I had to learn how to make 100s. I play them as often as I can when I am home and if I can get into contention then that experience is very valuable and helps my game a lot."
 
He is one of the most exciting professionals in New Zealand right now.
