But somewhere along the way, a Home Alone-esque moment of realization hit Campbell. He realized he may have forgotten to sign up for the tournament.
"Not good," Campbell said Thursday from his home outside Dallas. "I had actually thought about it on the plane, that there was a chance I didn't commit. I found out when I got off the plane."
Campbell landed Saturday afternoon. The deadline to enter a tournament is Friday afternoon.
Sort of humorous, yes, but as the No. 64 player in the world, this particular event was crucial to Campbell securing a spot in the Accenture Match Play Championship later this month.
To his credit, Campbell seems to be handling it well, laughing when someone asked him if he'd remembered to sign up for this weekend's Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.
