    Born in Texas, in 1974, Campbell was a keen golfer from a young age, and played as part of a strong team, at Midland College. His successes included being named an NJCAA All-American, in 1994. He studied at Midland College until he won a scholarship which enabled him to transfer to the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV).

    Having turned professional in 1996, Campbell first played on the NGA Hooters Tour. He had a considerable amount of success while playing on this tour, having achieved the status of leading money winner on three occasions. This success lead him to move to the then Buy.Com Tour, now the Tour, in 2001. Half way through that season, wins in three events meant that he gained promotion to the PGA Tour.

    Campbell had a successful start to his PGA Tour Career, winning the Tour Championship in 2003, and finishing runner-up in the PGA Championship. That year Campbell finished in 7th place on the PGA Tour money list. Campbell went on to achieve another three PGA Tour wins, first in 2004, then at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in 2006 and the Viking Classic in 2007. In 2004, Campbell has also featured in the top 10 of the world rankings, for a brief period.

    For the 2013-2014 season Campbell played on the PGA Tour with conditional status, but he didn’t graduate from the Web.Com Tour Finals. As a result he began playing the 2014-2015 season using a career money list exemption.

    As of the end of 2014, Campbell had achieved four wins on the PGA Tour, amassing total prize money of $22,262, 677.
