Kennedy has two New Zealand Open titles to his credit, winning at Clearwater Golf Club, Christchurch in 2011 where he outlasted the great Craig Parry in a playoff.

After missing out to Michael Hendry in the three-way playoff in 2017, he won the NZPGA Championship in 2016 before his second victory at Millbrook in 2020 in a commanding performance of low-scoring.

The quiet-spoken Sydneysider currently plies his trade on the Japan Tour where he has won three times with career earnings of around NZ$5m in Japan alone.

He has always prospered at Millbrook at one of his favourite tournaments. As well as his second victory in 2020, he was T2 in 2017 and T4 in 2019.

Kennedy has 14 wins as a professional led by six on the PGA Tour of Australasia and three on the Japan Golf Tour, with his exploits in 2020-21 earning his the PGA Tour of Australasia OOM winner and voted Player of the Year.
