SURREY, England, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- U.S. Open winner Michael Campbell beat two-time U.S. Open champ Retief Goosen, 7 & 6, Saturday to get to the finals of the HSBC World Match Play Championship.

Campbell will face Irishman Paul McGinley, who defeated Angel Cabrera a 4 & 3 defeat in the other semifinal.

Top-seeded South African Goosen entered the semifinal match against Campbell having trailed for only one hole in his first two matches. But Campbell, the fourth seed, took a 1-up lead with an eagle on the par-5 fourth and followed that with three straight birdies to take a 4-up lead.

"I knew I had to bring my 'A' game today and I did," Campbell said. "I had a great start to the round with eagle on the fourth and that set the whole mood of the game."

Campbell reached the semifinals with wins over Geoff Ogilvy and Steve Elkington.
