Michael Campbell: Taming Tiger, Maori life, 2nd to The Beatles & turning 50

Feb 26, 01:00 AM

A conversation to celebrate the landmark 50th birthday of Michael Campbell, about the New Zealander’s roller coaster career.

His Maori upbringing, fortune-telling grandmother and being too embarrassed to admit that he played golf. His emergence on the world stage at the 1995 Open at St Andrews and wanting to quit within a few years. His rise up again, culminating in his major championship victory at Pinehurst, seeing off Tiger Woods. Being in the celebrity spotlight, coping with his game’s subsequent decline, retirement and now, a return to seniors golf.
