PGA Tour: Shriners Hospitals for Children Open – Rod Pampling

Powered by National Club Golfer

The Australian birdied four of the last six holes to capture his first win in 10 years. The 47-year-old signed off with a 25-footer at the 72nd hole to beat Brooks Koepka, who made a late charge with three birdies from the 13th, by two shots.

Francesco Molinari began the Sunday in 46th place and ended it in fourth after firing a 61. The Italian birdied five holes going out, added an eagle at the 11th and had he birdied the last two would have produced a 59. Pampling himself had a 12-foot putt for the same magic number on day one.

What Pampling said: “Coming back from what we’ve had the last few years to get a win under our belt is just phenomenal.

“It’s just the self belief that I know (my game is) still there. The body feels healthy, I know I have the game for out here. It was just being patient, grinding out there on the Web Tour. It’s extremely hard out there but it certainly gives you the confidence that you can compete against the younger guys and come out here.”
