MANCHESTER, Maine — Ah, the perils, pitfalls and reality checks of being a professional golfer whose tournaments aren’t on TV and whose body isn’t outfitted in sponsor-labeled apparel.

Matthew Campbell had an eight-hour ride ahead of him Tuesday night to Rome, New York, where he was expected to report to work Wednesday at 6 a.m.

 

Sleep and concentration might not have come easily, anyway, what with Campbell, 26, over the moon about his first pro victory at the Charlie’s Maine Open.

But hopes sometimes can’t stand up against extenuating circumstances — like facing a team that’s been sleeping in its own beds all week and playing nothing but games under the lights.
