Having turned 50 at the weekend, Michael Campbell will making his competitive comeback this week at the 100th edition of the New Zealand Open.
And to mark the occasion, Michael has been speaking to commentator Richard Kaufman in his The Round Golf Podcast.
Michael takes us on the journey of his roller coaster career. Stories of his Maori upbringing, fortune-telling grandmother and being too embarrassed to admit to his peers that he played golf. His emergence on the world stage at the 1995 Open at St Andrews and wanting to quit within a few years. His rise up again and the incredible circumstances that culminated in his major championship victory at the US Open at Pinehurst, seeing off Tiger Woods.
He reminisces about his incredible homecoming and being in the celebrity spotlight. How he coped with his game’s subsequent decline, retirement and now, a return to golf.
