NZ Women's Open prize highlights inequality in golf

From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 28 September 2017

The New Zealand Open women's golf tournament begins in Auckland today and for the first time, there's more prize money on the table than the men's Open offers. The Women's Open has become an LPGA Tour-sanctioned tournament, bringing with it the world's best golfers, Lydia Ko included, as well as a bigger prize purse. But as RNZ's Matt Chatterton reports, the sport still has a long road ahead before the gulf between the men's and women's games is bridged.
