North Harbour wins women's golf title

3:26 pm on 5 December 2010

North Harbour has won the Women's Interprovincial golf title at the Miramar Club in Wellington.

Harbour made amends for extra-hole loss to Auckland in last year's final in beating Waikato 3½ to 1½.

They were led superbly by brilliant 13-year-old Lydia Ko, who was awarded the player of the tournament with eight consecutive wins, all under par.

It's North Harbour's fifth win in the Interprovincials and their fourth in the last 10 years.

In the semi-finals Waikato beat Auckland and North Harbour beat Wellington.
