New Zealand's top ranked golfer Michael Hendry will play alongside the American Brian Gay for the first two rounds of the $10.5 million World Golf Championship event in Florida.

The pair will be first away in the opening round at the Blue Monster course in Doral on Friday morning.

Hendry qualifies after his stunning last season on the Australasian Tour, and he's fresh from a successful defence of his New Zealand PGA title.

The WGC event has an exclusive field of 60, including 49 of the world's top-50 ranked players.
