Rod Pampling makes his way back to TPC Four Seasons for a 15th appearance at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.
The Double Oak, Texas, resident is just 30 minutes from home this week. Playing out of the 39th slot on the Tour graduate reshuffle, parlaying home turf advantage into a nice finish could go a long way toward earning some additional starts over the summer. Pampling finished T22 here last year and sports a 9-for-14 record overall at the Byron Nelson. Gamers should give Pampling a look in deeper formats such as DFS. May 17 - 10:34 PM

Rod Pampling preps for his 328th career PGA TOUR start as he turns his attention toward this week's Valero Texas Open.

The Texas resident is 2-for-5 at this event, just 0-for-1 since the course change to the current venue of JW Marriott TPC San Antonio. He enters the week ranked 194th in the FedExCup standings which is familiar ground as he's finished outside the top 190 each of the past three seasons. There is nothing that screams out for gamers to play Pampling, so it's probably a good idea to just skip over the Aussie as you set your rosters this week.

Rod Pampling polished off the Emirates Australian Open with a course-record, 10-under-par 30-31=61 and posted 6-under 278, good for a fourth-place finish and a berth into the 2016 Open Championship.

The top three, not otherwise exempt into the season's third major, inside the top 10 at The Australian Golf Club in Rosebery gained exemptions into the field of 156 at Royal Troon next July. Pampling opened with bogey at the par-4 first hole, and then gunned it for nine birdies before walking off with eagle-3 at the last. Champion Matt Jones grabbed the first exemption into The Open, but co-runners-up Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth were already exempt, thus making available a spot for Pampling, who will be making his ninth start in the major. A tiebreaker was needed to determined the final berth. Fellow Aussies Nick Cullen (No. 379 in the Official World Golf Ranking) and Lincoln Tighe (No. 1,022) shared fifth at 3-under 281. Neither of whom was already exempt for The Open, so Cullen got the nod for having the better world ranking. He missed the cut in 2012 in his only previous appearance.

Rod Pampling withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship with one hole to complete in his second round.

The Aussie simply didn't return to the Country Club of Jackson to button up the loop. He was 1-under-par on the round but only 1-under through 35 holes with a cut line two strokes lower. Believe it or not, this is his first mid-tournament WD in 322 PGA TOUR starts. He'll try again at next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba where he placed T63 in his only previous appearance in 2011. Pampling will need to put points on the board if he's going to make any noise in the Tour reshuffle category this fall.

Rod Pampling readies for his sixth Sanderson Farms Championship and second at this year's venue, the Country Club of Jackson.

In his 85th career start on the Tour, Pampling went wire-to-wire to win the BMW Charity Pro-Am in mid-May for his maiden title. He would eventually finish 17th on the regular-season money list, despite making just 13 starts, and graduated from the Tour for a second time (2001). In the Finals, he posted MC-MC-T56-T24, good for 39th on the priority rankings. The 46-year-old made 10 starts on the PGA TOUR last season cashing six times and finished 192nd in the FedExCup standings, missing the Playoffs for a third consecutive year. One of his paydays was a T66 at the SFC on rounds of 74-68-73-74.

Rod Pampling finished the 2014 Barracuda Championship in fifth place and returns this week for another crack at Montrêux Golf and Country Club.

Pampling is 9-for-9 at this event, including six top 25s to his name. The Aussie currently ranks 12th on the Tour money list, a good conduit to PGA TOUR status next year. The two-time PGA TOUR winner makes for an interesting sleeper this week in Reno.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
