After an outstanding amateur career Michael Campbell turned Professional competing mostly on the PGA Tour of Australasia and European Tour. He earned his status on the later tour via the European Challenge Tour. During his career he experienced success on all three Tours but had his breakout year in 2005 when he won the U.S. Open. He became the second New Zealander to win a Major and is one of the countries most successful golfers.

One of New Zealand golf’s great achievers returns to tournament golf after four years in the competitive wilderness to compete at this year’s NZ Open. Now on senior golf tours, Campbell, who turned 50 in March 2019, has been playing the PGA Tour Champions and the European Senior Tour. Campbell’s greatest win was undoubtedly the 2005 US Open but with numerous victories in Europe and Australasia (including titles such as the World Match Play Championship and Irish and European Opens) his career has been full of outstanding milestones. Campbell’s New Zealand Open victory came in 2000 when defeating Craig Perks in a playoff at Paraparaumu Beach and he has been runner-up on three other occasions. His appearancethis year is sure to excite those who remember the emotional win at Pinehurst 14 years ago when he became just the second New Zealander to win one of golf’s major titles.
