The early victory for Campbell set off a great 2000 season which saw him win in his very next start at the Heineken Classic. He then championed several months later at the Linde German Masters.
Campbell would finish fourth on the Volvo Order of Merit list with just under 200,000 euro. It was by far his best year on the European Tour since 1995, when he ended fifth on the list.
This week, $500,000 is on the tables. Campbell would no doubt be happy for a strong showing, and should he play as he did during the 2000 season, there should be no reason why he can not.
