One of New Zealand’s most successful golfers – Michael Campbell – has announced his retirement from top level golf.
Campbell has struggled to regain the form he showed in 2005 when he won the US Open. After 15 professional victories the 46-year-old has called time on his career.
“I fulfilled one of my dreams to win a major and it was fantastic,” he said.
“As everyone knows, it’s been well-documented that my career since then hasn’t been great but, if I walk away right now from the game, I
can be very proud of my achievements.”
Campbell has faced a number of injuries, including problems with a tendon in his left ankle that affected his stroke.
He said he was looking forward to having the opportunity to spend more time with his children.
