|Tom Campbell is the Tom Musselman Senior Player of the Year (top male between the ages of 50-59) for the second straight season following a year of consistent play resulting in high finishes against both seniors and non-seniors. Campbell finished joint runner-up in both the Kentucky Senior Open and Kentucky Senior Amateur, solo second among all seniors in Golf House Kentucky Classic #2, and finished in the top-ten at the Clark’s Pump-N-Shop Kentucky Mid-Am. But perhaps the most impressive result Campbell earned was a T23 in the Kentucky Open where he was the low senior. A solid total score of 218 (+3) that week earned Campbell a finish better than that of many current college golfers as well as active or former mini-tour players.
“I’m honored to again be the Tom Musselman Player of the Year,” Campbell stated. “It was one of my goals starting this season – to play well enough across the season to be named this winner. I still haven’t won one of the senior majors, but this award says that I’m close. My greatest accomplishment of the season was my T23 at the Kentucky Open. At age 51, that went beyond my expectations. To be able to play with and compete against both amateurs and professionals at a high level says I still have a little juice left in the tank. I putted really well this summer after changing back to a pencil grip in May. It gave me a lot more confidence on the greens. My short game from 100 yards and in has always been one of my biggest strengths and it was again this past season. In 2022, I want to win one of those senior majors, this award, and continue trying to compete with the junior circuit. I would like to thank those who have supported me as a player and a person this season and beyond. I’d also like to thank Tyler Chilson and Callaway Golf. Tyler’s support has helped me play at the highest level possible and has greatly contributed to this award.”
