Campbell climbs the world rankings

Michael Campbell’s revitalization in form has been shown in the golf world rankings with the forty three year old golfer climbing around seven hundred spots in 2 years.

The ex US Open champ, who fell out of the official world top nine hundred following injury problems as well as a loss of form, has now reached to the 264 spot and also secured a place as New Zealand No 2.

This is a nice comeback for Michael who has ended tied at seventeenth and sixteenth in his 1st two events on European Tour in the year 2013 to be forty fifth on the Race to Dubai standings list. Following US Open victory in the year 2005, Michael Campbell was ranked No 13 in the world.

His win in th US Open took everyone by surprise, not least the online betting company Unibet, who didn’t even have him down amongst their top 20 contenders.

Danny Lee, who is set to start his Tour season on 18th February, stays the New Zealand No 1 as well as 240th place in the world. Danny, who missed his card for PGA Tour season 2013 by only 1 shot, dealt to prequalify for the Sony Open where he ended in a share of thirteenth spot.

Michael Hendry is the 3rd highest ranked golfer in Kiwi players’ list and placed at 272 in the world rankings. The North Harbour golfer, who ended 4th at Heritage Classic on PGA Tour of Australasia, just 1 shot off playoff, is getting ready to retain his NZPGA champion title at The Hills.

Tianlang to use Australian Open as Masters preparation

He is considered as a future show stopper in the world of golf; therefore it is not surprising that fourteen year old Guan Tianlang is showing his calmness before going into the Australian open. Guan Tianlang is still unshaken by the prospect of going into the event against some of the biggest names in golf in Sydney’s The Lakes. The Chinese armature player has plans to use this event as an important preparation for his appearance at the Augusta Masters in April.

Next year, Guan will be the youngest golfer to take part in the Masters. Last Month, he won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship. This will be a really good experience than confronting the likes of Justin Rose, Tom Watson and Adam Scott this week.

More importantly, Guan is all set to get as much pro tournament experience as he can. On Monday, Guan saw The Lakes golf course for the very first time. Later he told that Australian open is a huge event and this would surely be a good preparation for him going into the Masters. He is looking forward to have a good experience.

He added that playing with some of the world’s top players would be a great experience for him. He wants to relish all the experience about it. He just wanted to know everything.

Guan Tianlang thinks that playing with some top golf players would not be a big problem for him. In the field, Guan would be joined by fellow Chinese golfer Andy Zhang.
