Rod Pampling turns his attention to TPC Deere Run for this week's John Deere Classic.

The Aussie finds his way back to the Quad Cities for his sixth start at this event. Previously, he's collected three paydays with a T15 in 2010 being his best. Playing without a TOUR card, he is 4-for-7 on the season, including a pair of top 25s. Pampling is playing with a little less pressure and more confidence after a wire-to-wire victory on the Tour in May.
Jul 8 - 8:06 AM

Rod Pampling went wire-to-wire at the BMW Charity Pro-Am to claim his first Tour title with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round.

Pampling ends his week at 25-under 261. His final lap around Thornblade Club featured seven birdies and two pars. A 1.519 putting average illustrates the key to his success. The two-time winner on the PGA TOUR is in an excellent position to earn a 2015-16 TOUR card with this victory.
May 17 - 6:02 PM

Rod Pampling settled for a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am and holds the 54-hole lead at 20-under 195.

That places him two strokes clear of a pair of players at 18-under. Pampling was on fire his first two round of the tournament, but cooled off in his first look at the home venue of Thornblade Club. His Saturday stroll featured three birdies and one bogey, upping his tally to 22 birdies to just two bogeys for the week. The final round will be contested exclusively at Thornblade, and the Aussie hopes to score is first Tour win. He is twice a winner on the PGA TOUR.
May 16 - 4:53 PM

Overnight leader Rod Pampling added another 9-under-par 63 in his second round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour and leads by four strokes at the midpoint.

Another day, another course-record-tying score for the Aussie. Pampling covered a long bogey with 10 birdies at Green Valley Country Club today. He leads the field with 19 birdies and putting (1.393). He's missed only four (of 28) fairways to co-lead the field and totaled 14 greens in regulation in each round. He'll conclude his rotation at the host course, Thornblade Club, where the course record is 10-under 71.

Rod Pampling blistered The Reserve at Lake Keowee for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 33-30=63 in today's opening round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour.

Pampling's course-record-tying score stands alone atop the leaderboard after 18 holes. The field of 168 gets one spin on each of three courses before the 54-hole cut. The Aussie found all 14 fairways, went 4-for-4 in scrambling and buried nine birdies. Despite the fireworks, he played the quartet of par 5s in 2-under with two pars. He arrived in Greer, South Carolina, slotted 72nd on the money list on the secondary circuit. Pampling is also 209th in the FedExCup standings. While we would normally expect to see him a handful of times on the PGA TOUR this summer, he may just stick with a full schedule on the Tour, especially if things continue to go his way this weekend.
May 14 - 6:51 PM

Rod Pampling carded a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, checking in three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Pampling is in the field at Copperhead by virtue of his top 10 in Puerto Rico on Sunday. He's making the most of it early. He went 5-for-14 in scoring chances with five birdies. The longest rolled just 10-and-a-half feet. Given the fact that he's playing this season on Past Champion status, playing time will be hard to come by, but if he continues to play well, sponsors might be lining up to book the 45-year-old.
Mar 12 - 6:02 PM

Rod Pampling has committed to this week's Valspar Championship.

The Aussie's top 10 at the Puerto Rico Open clinched the berth into this week's event. Pampling tied for 10th on the island and climbed to 197th in the FedExCup standings. He last pegged it at Copperhead in 2012, but missed the cut.
Mar 9 - 12:29 PM

Rod Pampling punctuated his Puerto Rico Open with an eagle-3 at the 72nd hole to post 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's finale.

Pampling birdied the eighth, 10th and 11th holes before back-pedaling with a 6 at the par-4 13th. After four straight pars, he gathered those two lost strokes with a 3 at the last. He's in the books at 5-under 283 and sits one stroke off the 72-hole clubhouse lead but just outside the top 10 on the leaderboard. It's a nice injection into a season that had featured no better than a T65 (Pebble Beach) among two paydays in as many starts.
Mar 8 - 3:08 PM

Rod Pampling added a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach the midpoint in 3-under 141, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After hitting only nine greens on Thursday, Pampling found 10 today and still limited the carnage to a lone bogey at the par-4 14th hole. He circled birdies at the par-3 11th and par-5 fifth to secure another red number when the odds were stacked against it given the challenge in scoring at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Crafty veterans -- are there any other kind? -- tend to emerge when patience is at a premium. The Aussie is one of many lurking on the island entering the weekend.
Mar 6 - 4:01 PM

Rod Pampling carded a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Aussie split 10 (of 14) fairways, but he hit only nine greens in regulation. While he squared three bogeys, Pampling compensated with five birdies to get the most out of his round. He made news in 2011 (among gamers, at least) when he qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs on Past Champion status. That's where he is again this season, but he shows enough flashes of old form on occasion that we shouldn't rule out another run at the Playoffs or at least fully exempt status next season via the Tour where he already has a T8 on the board in 2015.
Mar 5 - 11:37 AM

Rod Pampling crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

So many of the touring pros long in the tooth have played well today that you have to wonder if this is an old-timer's game. The Aussie went 5-for-5 in scrambling and dropped six birdies, including on all four par 5s. He checked up two strokes off the clubhouse lead. It's his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he opened the 2013 Travelers with a 65 as well. Pampling will be gunning to keep this rally rolling at Spyglass Hill in the second round.
Feb 12 - 5:02 PM

Rod Pampling turns his attention to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for his first start on the PGA TOUR in 2015.

Pampling is actually trending well headed into this event. He holds only Past Champion status in 2014-15, so he's been relegated mainly to the Tour. He played both of the 2015 Tour events, tying for 40th in Panama before a T8 in Colombia last week. He has made four of his seven cuts at Pebble Beach, with one of those going for a top 10. One could make a case that he actually has some value in deeper formats.
Feb 10 - 8:27 PM

Rod Pampling competes in this week's Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson.

The Aussie gained entry into this event via his Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR. That status afforded him seven starts in 2013-14, so his starts are both rare and precious. It's not out of the question for him to contend, as he did when he finished fifth in the Barracuda Championship in his last PGA TOUR start.

Rod Pampling has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

He's scheduled to compete in this week's News Sentinel Open on the Tour where he's 34th in earnings. As a result of the decision, he's going to turn a nifty trick on the PGA TOUR. Pampling is currently 201st in the FedExCup standings, so he's going to be place outside the top 200 despite a top-five finish. Of course, a solo fifth at the Barracuda isn't equivalent to the same finish in an event that awards a full value of FedExCup points, but consider that he also cashed in three previous starts; alas, none went for a top 60. Say this about the Aussie: He has a knack of sticking around and making noise often enough to warrant our attention. If he graduates from the Tour or survive the Finals, he'll be worth a flier in deep formats in 2014-15.
