Michael Campbell Wins US Open
Sporting News, The, July 8, 2005
It's an old story, although it
never really gets old: A golfer
hits a low point in this confounding
game and nearly gives it up, only
to recover his swing and his passion
and, eventually, re-experience
the thrill of victory. The story
doesn't get better than it did
last month with Michael Campbell,
who--seven years after losing his
cards on the European and Australian
tours--won the U.S. Open.
The victory for Campbell, a 36-year-old from New Zealand, was especially remarkable because he was the only player at Pinehurst to finish at par and he had to hold off Tiger Woods, who had charged to within two shots of the lead with seven holes to play. And it was especially sweet--for golf fans around the world--when Campbell broke down in tears on the 18th green, the victory of his life behind him and a whole new world before him.
SPORTING NEWS editors choose one player each month whose performance demonstrates the "Character of a Champion."
