David Chad Campbell (born May 31, 1974) is an American professional golfer.


Early years and amateur career

Campbell was born in Andrews, Texas and grew up in west Texas. He was a member of a strong junior college men's golf squad during the years (1992–94) he played at Midland College. He was the conference medalist in 1993, the year that the MC team dominated the Western Junior College Athletic Conference (WJCAC) and won the regional title. In 1994, the Chaps repeated as WJCAC champions and finished second in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) championship. That year, Campbell was WJCAC medalist, Region V Tournament medalist and the NJCAA Tournament medalist runner-up. In 1994, he was named an NJCAA All-American.[1] He was listed as the number one player in the final NJCAA national poll. After two years at MC, he won a scholarship and transferred to the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV).[2] He turned professional in 1996.

Professional career

Prior to 2000, Campbell played on the third-tier NGA Hooters Tour, where he won 13 tournaments and was the leading money winner three times. In 2001 he played on the second-tier Tour, now known as the Nationwide Tour, where he won three tournaments and earned promotion to the elite PGA Tour part way through the season.

In 2003 Campbell won The Tour Championship, was runner-up to surprise winner Shaun Micheel at the PGA Championship, and finished seventh on the PGA Tour money list. He claimed a second PGA Tour win in 2004 and made a strong start to 2006, winning the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and topping the money list for a short time early in the season. He claimed his fourth PGA Tour victory by one stroke at the 2007 Viking Classic.

In the 2009 Masters Tournament, he went to a playoff against Ángel Cabrera and Kenny Perry, but was eliminated on the first playoff hole, the 18th, after he missed a 4 foot par putt. Also from this tournament he holds the best start to a Masters Tournament after getting 5 birdies in the first 5 holes.

Campbell featured in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings briefly in 2004.[3]
