Cambo Hasn't Done Alot Since US Open Win

Michael Campbell play has certainly been poor since his U.S. Open win back in 2005. He's dropped to #188 in the world rankings but is excited about starting his 15th year on the European Tour this week at the Qatar Masters in Doha, his first competition since missing the cut in last month's Australian Open.

"I've had a good break and now having wiped the 2007 slate clean, I'm anxious to get back into competition and get my 2008 campaign off to a positive start," he said.

"I decided to work pretty hard on my fitness during the Christmas and New Year break so as to better prepare myself for this year."

Campbell had been working with a new personal trainer for the past two months.

"I do feel a lot leaner and fitter, and I've also lost a bit of weight so that's why I'm excited about these two weeks."

"It's been very simple and nothing too technical. I remember adopting a similar sort of approach to my golf four years ago and it was that sort of attitude that helped me win the European Open."

"I'm not worried about my ranking because I know that will improve with a few results," he said.

"All I am focusing on is just playing golf and the basic things in life and hopefully everything else will fall into place."


I will be interesting to see how he comes out of the gate this week as he'll be teeing it up with Martin Kaymer the winner last week and England's Lee Westwood for the opening two rounds.
