Age no barrier

FORGOTTEN man Michael Campbell of New Zealand quietly posted 66 yesterday and declared that Darren Clarke's Open championship had inspired him.

"He's 42, I'm 42, and he won a Major. What he did two weeks ago was definitely inspirational," said Campbell, who claimed his only Major title at the US Open in 2005.

Don't forget the Kiwi also won the Smurfit European Open in 2002, and the Irish Open in '03.

If he can stay inspired and in the right groove over the next few days, 'Cambo' could be a contender.
