Campbell Beats the Aussies

Kiwi golfer Michael Campbell made it second-time lucky beating 1998 winner Thomas Bjorn in the NZ$2.1 million (A$1.6 million) Heinekin Classic, as thunder and lightening crackled ominously overhead.

Scoring a near perfect 66, for a course record of 20 under par, Campbell was six strokes ahead of his nearest rival Bjorn whom he duelled with over the last 36 holes.

The win was the second in a row for Campbell in the PGA Australasian Golf Tour, after he won the New Zealand Open on the Paraparaumu beach course last week. This means the 30-year-old Wellingtonian has amassed over $983,000 in prize money, another record for the tournament.

Campbell first came to prominence when he came out of nowhere to finish third in the British Open.

New Zealand Golfer Greg Turner also finished with prize money in sixth place at a seven under par 70.
