Major Campbell

2005 is undoubtedly Michael Campbell’s year. Not content with winning the US Open last month, Campo has snatched a “knife-edge” victory in the HSBC World Matchplay Championship at Wentworth. Past winners of the esteemed tournament, which boasts the richest first prize in golf (£1 million), include Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros. Campbell remained typically humble after his win: “My big buzz really is to have some sort of influence on junior golf back home. My legacy one day is to see these top NZ golfers, young kids, coming through and winning lots of majors. I want to be a part of that when I retire, helping financially or helping morally, and coaching. I’ll probably have a big part in the development of golf in NZ and that’s really, really important to me.”
