The Hamilton golfer Steven Alker has posted a one-under par 70 in the opening round of the 4-round second stage qualifying tournament for next year's PGA tour.

Alker was among the first 6 players in the field of 80 to complete their rounds, but already he's six strokes behind the leader.

Four other New Zealanders have yet to start their respective tournaments in Florida, Texas and California.
