After a bright start, New Zealand golfer Michael Campbell faded at the weekend to plummet down the leaderboard at the BMW International Open in Cologne, Germany.
Campbell was nicely placed at six-under and just five shots off the lead after opening the European Tour event with rounds of 70 and 68, but a third round six-over 78 and a three-over 75 in today's final round saw him finish well down the field in a share of 60th place.
His final total of three-over 291 earned the former US Open champion both his best payday - 5300 euro - and his best finish for the season. It was just his second cut made from 11 events on tour this year.
England's Danny Willett won in a playoff against Australian Marcus Fraser, after both players were tied at 11-under par after 72 holes.
Meanwhile, Kiwi No 1 Danny Lee narrowly made the second round cut but did not finish the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship in Connecticut.
Lee scraped into the weekend but another cut was required after the third round and Lee's three-over par 73 dropped him outside the mark required to play today's final round.
On the second tier Nationwide Tour, Tim Wilkinson finished the Wichita Open in Kansas in a share of 56th place after posting scores of 68, 69, 75 and 69 for a three-under total of 281.
Steve Alker failed to make the cut.
