QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand -- New Zealand's Michael Hendry beat Australian Scott Strange at the first hole of a playoff on Sunday to defend his New Zealand PGA golf title.

Hendry became the first player since compatriot Sir Bob Charles in 1980 to defend the title.

The 33-year-old Hendry shot a 5-under 67 while Strange finished with a 66 to be tied after 72 holes at 269, 19 under par. The pair then returned to the 18th where Strange found trouble at a greenside bunker, allowing Hendry to putt out for the title.

The pair exchanged the lead throughout Sunday's final round before both parred the 18th to require a playoff.
