NZ Golf to bestow real korowai to winner at NZ Open 2020

From Checkpoint, 5:53 pm on 26 February 2020

Following a major blunder last year in which NZ Golf bestowed the winner of the New Zealand Open with a fake korowai, it appears the organisation has learnt its lesson.

A pōwhiri with participation from local iwi Ngai Tahu opened the tournament on Wednesday, and this year's winner will receive a real korowai.
