' My aim is togeta scholarship to an American university and play over there. ' Tadhg Campbell The Muriwai Golf Club's strokeplay and match- play tournaments saw the boy separated from the men. Tadhg Campbell, 14, defeated much older opponents to win both senior open trophies in tough weather con- ditions. It was raining and quite terrible so it made it more challenging,'' he says. The Massey High School student became the first player to claim both titles in the same year since Rob Noffle achieved the feat back in 2004. In the strokeplay com- petition Campbell held a three-shot lead with a round to play. Regular title conten- ders James Colligan and Wayne Flintham made strong charges while Campbell had a shaky start to his final round and found himself in third position with only two holes to play. But pars at the 17th and 18th hole saw Campbell earn a score of 78 and claim the title by a single stroke. In the matchplay con- test Campbell faced Bob Murray in the final with the teenager taking out the 36 hole contest with a 6 and 5 margin. Campbell got out to a three-hole lead with only nine holes to play and then won the 10th, 12th and 13th hole to take the victory. Campbell says al- though he's nearly 40 years younger than some of his rivals he is still treated as a senior player at the club. They treat me as a senior because I also play in the club team so I'm good friends with many of them.'' He took the sport up nearly three years ago and now has a 1.5 handi- cap and finished a cred- ible 16th in the world under-15s junior tourna- ment in Indonesia earlier this year. Myaimistogeta scholarship to an Amer- ican university and play over there,'' he says. When I started I wasn't that good and had no expectations. As I got better I found myself becoming more competi- tive and now practise golf every day.''
