Michael Campbell holds off Tiger Woods to win the 105th U.S. Open

New Zealand's Michael Campbell held off a late charge by Tiger Woods to win the 105th US Open at Pinehurst.

The 36-year-old carded a final-round 69 for level par to beat Woods (69) by two and claim his first major title.

Campbell began the day four shots behind overnight leader Retief Goosen but went in front as the defending champion imploded with a round of 81.

Spain's Sergio Garcia, South African Tim Clark and Australian Mark Hensby tied for third on five over.

Campbell, who secured the last US Open qualifying spot at Walton Heath, become the first Kiwi to win a major title since Bob Charles took the Open Championship at Lytham 42 years ago.

Hard graft pays off for Campbell
His previous best major finish was tied third at the 1995 Open after leading for three rounds.
