Even more impressive is that he almost didn't play the tournament. He had to qualify and usually, you have to come here to do it. Fortunately for him, there were satellite qualifiers this year. His caddy and others had to convince him to enter. ;-D

I would put that right up there near the top. ;-D

Quite agreed. Let's see Campbell do that! :-D

It's a long story that would probably bore the hell out of you ;-)



It could be an over reaction but most of the NZ media are now calling Campbell's win the greatest sporting achievement ever by a NZ'er. Just goes to show how significant it is down here.

In my mind it certainly ranks in the Top 5.

The America's Cup was a huge thing here, possibly more for economic reasons than anything else but it did do so much for the country. It's just such a terrible spectator sport isn't it?

Anyway this is the last place I should be, I'm tired and hungover and have a University finals paper to sit in an hour. As usual the Cafe will determine the quality of my final grade.
