Kiwi golfer Michael Hendry sits two shots off the early lead after his opening round of the Victorian Open at 13th Beach at Barwon Heads.

In his first event of 2017, the 37-year-old Aucklander fired a flawless six-under 66, including four consecutive birdies, to share second place with Queenslander Brett Rankin.

The pair trail clubhouse leader David Bransdon of Victoria, who made the most of calm early conditions to shoot eight-under 64.

Hendry's Kiwi compatriots Brad Shilton and Josh Geary were well astray of the leaders, both finishing on two-under 70.
