Next we're off to the seaside settlement of Kaikoura. Where locals have taken on the task, of trying to raise 3.7 million dollars to build a new hospital.

New Zealander Steve Williams says his relationship with Tiger Woods remains like a nasty divorce after spending 13 years as his caddy, and winning 13 major championships with the golfing legend. He says Woods sometimes treated him like a slave and left him to take flak from the media when news of Woods' extra marital affairs first came out.   The revelations come in his new memoir, Steve Williams: Out of the Rough. Williams details his start as a schoolboy carrying  the bag for his dad at the Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club to working for greats like Sir Bob Charles and Greg Norman. 

Williams will be attending a number of meet and greet events across the country through out November.
