Cameron Tringale patched together a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to wrap his sixth consecutive appearance at 15-under 269, one adrift of 72-hole clubhouse leader Smylie Kaufman.
After opening in 68-65-70, Tringale began the day at 10-under (T6) and three off the pace. On his round, he striped nine (of 14) fairways but landed just 12 greens in regulation, which he'd pay for later in the round. Tringale went bogey-free on his outward half, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 4, 8 and 9 to turn 4-under. Each of the four conversions were in excess of eight feet, including a 17-footer at the par-4 fourth. After birdie from 12'8" at the 10th for three straight, things went south beginning with bogey at the 12th, missing a 3'10" par putt after missing the green in regulation, and then sandwiched birdie at 13 with back-to-back dropped shots at 14 and 15, missing each GIR here as well and mid-range par putts. The 28-year-old bounced back with back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17, both from outside 13 feet, before settling for par on the last. He's finished runner-up twice on TOUR in 165 career starts as a pro and currently sits T2 on the leaderboard.
