[SEEING IS BELIEVING: New Zealand's Michael Campbell took some good-natured ribbing after winning the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, where he made frequent visits to the portable restrooms on the course. Turns out, it had nothing to do with a nervous stomach. Campbell's bathroom breaks were for eye exercises that he didn't want anyone to see him doing. They were performed to strengthen eye muscles, allowing him to see the putting line better, improve his focus and help him relax. Campbell started doing the exercises earlier this year after having his eyes tested and being told that one of his eyes was not looking at the same point as the other. Now Campbell goes through a routine every day in which he puts a tee about 15 inches in front of his face and then pulls it in until he sees two tees. Then he pushes it back until he sees one. He then moves the tee in circles and in figure-eights. It all takes about 20 seconds.] If I did that in front of the TV cameras, everyone would have thought I was loony, ... So what I do is plot out where all the port-a-loos are.
