Campbell says fitness will be new priority

The New Zealand golfer Michael Campbell says fitness will be a priority this year once he overcomes a nagging shoulder injury.

Despite a two-month rehab period for the shoulder Campbell's year has been blighted with two withdrawals, the latest from the Qatar Masters in Doha.

He hasn't played a full round since the Dunhill Cup last October.

But Campbell says the shoulder isn't as painful as it once was but it has reminded him he needs to put more focus on his overall fitness.
