The Clubhouse enlists Lydia Ko to front new campaign promoting the LPGA tour via Augusto

Screen Shot 2017-03-10 at 9.52.09 am.jpgThe Clubhouse has launched a new campaign via Augusto, which features current world #1 Korean-born New Zealand professional golfer Lydia Ko to drive visitors to the LPGA tour - hosted in New Zealand, later this year.

The campaign highlights that Kiwis are about to be treated to the world's greatest golf in their own backyard.

Says Matt Sellars and Rich Robson, CDs, Augusto: "This is not just another tournament with a few top golfers, this is New Zealand's first real chance to witness our very own golfing superstar, Lydia Ko, take on dozens of the world's greatest, right here on home soil. So we wanted to create a fun campaign that goes beyond the golfing audience and appeals to Kiwi sports fans all over the country."

This campaign rekindles Augusto's relationship with Ko, who created and produced Lydia's announcement to the world that she was turning professional at the age of 16 with the #KoGoesPro campaign, featuring All Black, Israel Dagg.

Says Michelle Walshe, managing director, Augusto: "It was a fantastic experience working with Lydia on her KoGoesPro video announcement all those years ago and since then, like all kiwi's, have been proudly watching her take on the world. We're thrilled to have had another opportunity to work with Lydia, this time to promote the MCKAYSON New Zealand Women's Open. The Clubhouse have done an outstanding job in bringing this prestigious LPGA Tour event to our shores and allowing us to see our #1 kiwi gem play in our backyard."
