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.
