Michael Campbell forced out

6:11 am on 23 January 2009

The New Zealand golfer Michael Campbell is considering a further two months out of the game after being forced to withdraw from a second event in a row this year.

Campbell was four over par for nine holes during the first round before a long running shoulder injury saw him drop out of the Qatar Masters in Doha.

He withdrew from last week's Abu Dhabi tournament and prior to that another European Tour event in Hong Kong in November.

Campbell then rehabilitated the injury for two months.
