Michael Campbell staying with European Tour

Despite his win at the U.S. Open two weeks ago, Michael Campbell said he plans to remain a regular on the European Tour.

``I've no reason to change. I tried America three, two years ago, but it didn't work out,'' the 36-year-old New Zealander said Wednesday before this week's European Open. ``My kids go to school in England. I'm just so established here. There's no way in the world that I want to ruin the routine now. The processes I'm using are obviously working.''

Campbell said he only intends to play major tournaments and world championship events in the United States.

``I hopes this sends a message to all European players that you can win majors not playing in America,'' he said.

The victory at the U.S. Open also gave him confidence that he can compete with the world's best players during the final round of a major.

``I know if I'm ever leading once again in a major with nine holes to play, or have a three-shot or two-shot lead with Tiger or Vijay (Singh) or Ernie (Els) or Goosey (Retief Goosen) breathing down my neck, I can still win,'' he said.

Last Sunday, Campbell invited about 100 people to a party in celebration of the win. Now he said it's time to look forward.

``We had a good time with a dance floor and a DJ. The champagne flowed quite freely,'' he said. ``That was the last time to celebrate my win. Now it's back to business.''
