Security concerns over Tiger at NZ Open

Tiger Woods' appearance next week at the New Zealand Open has brought with it increased security concerns.

``There will be a police presence as in all golf tournaments that Tiger is involved in, and there will be security when he is out in public,'' tournament coordinator Paul Gleeson said Thursday. ``We want people viewing throughout the world to see the very best of clean, green and safe New Zealand.''

Wellington police spokeswoman Kaye Calder said security arrangements were being assessed regularly

``Tiger has an extremely high profile and since the events of Sept. 11, we're all mindful of security matters,'' Calder said. ``The closer it gets to his arrival and the start of play, the greater our assessment of security needs.''

The New Zealand Open is to be played at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club from Jan. 10-13.
