Campbell third at British Masters

7:07 am on 1 October 2008

Michael Campbell has come up short again in his bid to return to golf's winning circle.

On the final day of the British Masters and the Belfry in England, Campbell completed his rain-affected third round in 65 to join the defending champion Lee Westwood in the lead on 12-under par going into the final 18 holes.

After a three-way duel through the final round, a bad break on the final hole cost Campbell a shot and his even par 72 dropped him two strokes behind Westwood and Gonzalo Fernandez-Costano, who played off for the title.

The Spainard prevailed on the third extra hole for the win.

But it was another substantial six-figure payday for Campbell, who picked up just over $300,000.
