NZ Open field finalised

6:27 am on 29 November 2011

The field for this week's New Zealand Open golf championship was finalised yesterday, and the last qualifier will become one of the youngest in history to play in the event.

15 year old Jason Yoo, a Korean-born Christs College student who took up the game only four years ago, set aside his NCEA exams to post a one-under par 71 on the Russley course to secure his place in the field with one shot to spare.

The Open starts on Thursday at the Clearwater course.
