Michael Campbell pulls out of French Open

US Open golf champion Michael Campbell has pulled out of the upcoming French Open, organisers said.

The New Zealander, who considered giving up the game a few years ago to sell golf balls, held off Tiger Woods to win the US Open on Sunday.

He had been scheduled to play at the French Open, which begins Thursday in Versailles, but decided to pull out to spend time with his family instead.

"He is not playing. He is going on holiday with his wife and children. We were informed of his decision this morning," tournament spokeswoman Stephanie Joyeux said in a telephone interview.

"We are disappointed, but it is understandable. He has just won the US Open and he is on a cloud. The tournament would have been better with him, but we understand."
