Campbell will be closer to home the next two weeks when he plays in the EDS Byron Nelson Championship (today through Sunday) and the Bank of America Colonial (May 18-21) in Irving and Fort Worth respectively.
Chad's scorecards on the PGA Tour -- he's won three PGA tournaments -- and the fact he beat Tiger Woods in match play and came so close at Augusta this year -- are what have the people of this town talking.
Campbell admits it was a tad overwhelming going to the Masters for the last two days of play this year after Chad had taken the lead.

Campbell began his surge at Amen Corner, holing a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 12th that drew virtually no applause.
Even with Campbell ahead by three shots, this Masters appears to be wide open with some of the strongest games in golf -- from Singh to Mickelson to Els to Woods to Goosen, all members of the so-called Big Five.
