Rod Pampling posted a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, coming to rest just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Like the old days. Pampling hit only 10 greens in regulation today, but he wrangled five birdies, three of which during an inward, bogey-free 3-under. The late par breakers included respective rolls from 12'8" and 19'3" at Nos. 11 and 14. This is his first sub-70 on the PGA TOUR since he opened he opened the 2013 Sanderson Farms Championship with a 69. However, the Aussie went on to miss that cut following a second-round 73. So, if for whatever reason you're on board, keep holding your breath.

Rod Pampling crafted a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the opening round of the WNB Golf Classic and shared the lead with Andrew Putnam and Trevor Murphy.

Pampling began his day on the back nine at Midlands CC, circling four birdies to just one bogey, then adding three more birdies on the front. His 14 GIR were tied for 11th in the tournament on what proved to be a breezy day in Texas. The Aussie has never won on the Tour despite winning twice the PGA TOUR over the years.

Rod Pampling has been added to the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

Pampling was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Shawn Stefani withdrew. The Aussie has cashed in each of the last three editions of the PRO, including a T25 in 2012. This supports reasoning to consider him in weekly salary games where he'll come cheap despite the fact that he's stuck with Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR.
Mar 3 - 1:36 PM

Rod Pampling will finally kick off his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Since the Aussie has been relegated to Past Champion status, starts have been hard to come by. He has teed it up in this event six times, beginning with a T32 in 2002, with his best a T10 in 2003. He didn't have this on the schedule between 2004 and 2010, suggesting it's a stop he makes only out of necessity.
Feb 4 - 8:43 PM

Rod Pampling has been added to the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Pampling was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he was given one of the final four sponsor exemption. The Aussie ranks 190th in FedExCup points and 198th in earnings, so his work is cut out at Sedgefield where he hasn't posted a top 25 among three paydays in four appearances.

Rod Pampling torched Montreux Golf and Country Club for 17 points in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Pampling is 6-for-14 on conditional status this year and sits just inside the top 200 in both FedExCup points and earnings, so there's no better time for him to make noise. He started on the 10th hole today and circled four birdies going out. After a bogey-5 at the first hole, he racked up another five birdies for the week's highest single-round aggregate thus far. The Aussie has 19 points at the midpoint, three back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Rod Pampling has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Aussie was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was given a tee time at Glen Abbey after two golfers withdrew. Pampling has cashed in six of 13 starts but has yet to record a top 40. This will be his fourth appearance at the RBC, but he hasn't played this week's host track in competition.

Rod Pampling opened the Travelers Championship with a 5-under-par 31-34=65 to reach the clubhouse three strokes behind the lead.

Pampling hit only 10 greens today but he limited the damage to a bogey-5 at the ninth hole, his last of the round. Prior to it, he rolled in six birdies, including conversions from 12'4, 20'10" and 18'9" at the 14th, 18th and third holes, respectively. The 43-year-old Aussie entered the week ranked 187th in FedExCup points after nine starts. He's still chasing his first top 40.

Rod Pampling has turned in a pair of 3-under-par 69s at the Wells Fargo Championship to share the clubhouse lead at 6-under 138 at the midpoint.

The Aussie has hit only 22 greens in regulation but he's limited the damage to two bogeys. He's rolled in eight birdies, three of which from beyond 11 feet, the longest measuring 18'10" at the 18 hole today, but he's converted on five par attempts from outside 10 feet. Needless to say, his scrambling is the No. 1 reason why he's contending.

Rod Pampling has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Pampling started the week as the 13th alternate. He gained entry when Ben Crane withdrew today. The Aussie sits first in the pecking order among those on conditional status. It's limited him to six starts of which he's cashed in just three to sit 183rd in FedExCup points. He's competed at Quail Hollow seven times, including six in a row from 2005-2010. This is his first appearance since a T63 three years ago. His addition into the field should erase the sting of Monday's four-spotter where he was the last of five clipped by Jack Fields in the 6-for-1 playoff. Pampling went down on the fourth extra hole at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte.

Rod Pampling was added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Aussie was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry after two withdrawals today. Prevented from a full schedule due to conditional status, he's cashed in just two of five starts this season and has posted no better than a T57 in Puerto Rico. He's missed each of his last three cuts at TPC Louisiana.

Rod Pampling has been given a sponsor exemption to return to the site of his 2006 win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Aussie's win in '06 was his second, and most recent PGA TOUR victory. It's been a slow start to 2013, making two of three cuts but failing to crack the top 50. He will need to get things in gear soon in order to assure himself a coveted spot in the FedExCup Playoffs later in the year.

Rod Pampling received a sponsor exemption to compete in this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. Pampling started the week as the fourth alternate, but he was one of three alternates to fill out the final four sponsor exemptions. This is a trend that has extended a third straight week on TOUR, offering a clear indication that officials are opening as many opportunities as possible for guys with some form of status. The Aussie has conditional status and the Farmers will mark his debut this season. He's cashed in seven of nine starts at Torrey Pines, including a career-best T8 a year ago.

Rod Pampling is preparing for a high-stress week at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, entering the week 124th on the money list.

The Aussie has cashed in 17 of 25 events, with four top 25s and a lone top 10 at the Farmers Insurance Open early in the season. While he’s made each of his four cuts in the Fall Series, the stress of the money list could be taking its toll. He has a T68/T43/70 in his last three starts with only one round under par on the weekend in any of those events. He’s missed the cut the last two years at Disney.
