Applications open for the 2013 Michael Campbell Foundation
It’s a day all New Zealand Golf fans will remember forever: Michael Campbell was on top of the golfing world when he beat the World No.1 Tiger Woods to win the US Open.
Following his major triumph Cambo talked about giving back to the game and creating a legacy and it is during this time the Michael Campbell Foundation was born.
The mission of the Michael Campbell Foundation is to inspire young New Zealanders to realize their full potential.
In pursuit of the Michael Campbell Foundation’s ‘Nurturing Excellence’ objectives, a scholarship partnership with New Zealand Golf has been created.
The Michael Campbell Foundation has been in operation for six years now and has seen the likes of Vaughan McCall, Ben Campbell, Josh Munn, and Emily Perry benefit from the programme.
Here is some of the feedback from the players who have taken part in the Michael Campbell Foundation scholarship programme.
“The best part about this whole experience was getting to know Michael as a person. He is a very generous, humble, down to earth guy who selflessly gave us a week of his time to open our eyes to a world that we all have the potential to be in,” said Sarah Bradley of the Cambridge Golf Club.
“Michael is a very humble person and it has been interesting to realise he has greater considerations in his life that simply golf,” said Vaughan McCall of the Gore Golf Club.
“The stuff I learnt was great, he is so knowledgeable. One the new shots I picked was how to play a specific shot out of long rough that allows the clubface to get a more consistent contact on the ball so I can better judge the distance of each shot; it’s a higher softer flight which is a nice addition to my set of short game shots.”
This year, up to three scholarship recipients will be selected to attend a training camp with Campbell in Europe during the northern hemisphere summer.
The scholarship covers all associated costs for the recipients including travel, accommodation, and related expenses.
Campbell will take the players through the demands of being a professional, adjusting to life on tour, travel schedules and preparing for a possible career as golf professional.
It is an elite award looking to further the games of New Zealand’s best emerging talent.
The application pack is attached below and applications close on Friday 5th April 2013.
