Golf career

Rod Pampling PamplingCohen847jpg

Pampling was born in Redcliffe, Queensland. He turned professional in 1994. He began his tournament golf career on the PGA Tour of Australasia, where he won the 1999 Canon Challenge, and also spent time on the NGA Hooters Tour, a developmental tour in the United States. In 2000 and 2001 he played on the PGA Tour's official developmental tour, the Tour, now called the Tour, and did well enough in his second season to gain promotion to the full PGA Tour.

In 1999, Pampling shot a 71 at Carnoustie during the opening round of the Open Championship, leading the field. However, he shot an 86 in the second round to miss the cut.

He achieved his first PGA Tour win at The International in 2004 and his second at the 2006 Bay Hill Invitational, which took him into the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings. He continues to play a few events in his home country each year during the northern hemisphere winter. He won the Sportsbet Australian Masters at Huntingdale Golf Club, Melbourne in November 2008, beating Marcus Fraser in a 3-hole playoff after the two players tied at a 12-under par 276. As a European Tour co-sanctioned event, that win also earned him a two-year exemption on that tour.

After a rough 2010, Pampling played the 2011 season with limited status as a past champion and through sponsor invites. He received a limetime invitation to the AT&T National from tournament director Greg McLaughlin after personally trying to thank each tournament director that gave him a sponsor exemption during the 2011 season. Pampling clawed his way to 124th on the PGA Tour, regaining his Tour card by just over $2,000. Pampling finished the 2012 season 127th on the money list, just missing a PGA Tour card by two spots and $26,617. From 2013 to 2015, Pampling alternated between the PGA Tour and Tour.

Pampling won the Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am in 2015 and regained his PGA Tour card through the Tour Finals in 2015 and 2016. He earned his first PGA Tour win in ten years at the 2016 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. A clerical error allowed Pampling and eleven other golfers entry into the field, increasing the field from 132 to 144.
