New injury concern for Campbell

There's a new injury concern for golfer Michael Campbell which might force him to withdraw from the rich PGA championship at Wentworth in Surrey.

The nagging shoulder injury Campbell's been battling since last October seems to have come right, but after struggling round in 79 on the opening day at Wentworth, he revealed he'd been treated four times during the round for lower back pain, and pain shooting down his arm.

Fellow Wellingtonian Mark Brown didn't fare much better than Campbell on the scoreboard, signing for a 78, with the leading trio on 67.
