Campbell fades on final day in Hong Kong

11:30 am on 19 November 2012

Michael Campbell's bid for his first golf title in seven years faded badly on Sunday when he struggled round in 72, two over par to finish tied for eighth.

The final day belonged to his 48-year-old Spanish playing partner Miguel Angel Jimenez, who had started the round tied for the lead with Campbell, and held on to become the oldest winner on the European Tour.

His closing round of 65 completed a hat-trick of victories in the event.
