Is Cambo a ‘serial quitter’?

A BRITISH tabloid cruelly labelled Michael Campbell a ‘serial quitter’ after the New Zealander withdrew midway through the second round of the British Open at Turnberry.
Campbell was headed for his highest-ever score in a major when he withdrew after taking a bogey at the par-four 12th hole.
The 2005 US Open winner was 14-over-par for the round and 21-over par for the championship when a recurrence of a right shoulder injury forced him from the course.
It is the fourth occasion this season the Sydney-based Campbell has withdrawn from a tournament. He pulled out of two earlier events on the European Tour, then withdrew through injury from the Players Championship in Florida.
It also meant Campbell will have sat out the weekend rounds in all 15 tournaments he has contested this year up to the British Open.
