With the big three Australian men’s golfing tournaments over now and Christmas approaching, there’s never been a better time to catch up on the world of Rod Pampling with our weekly/occasional update on what’s happening.
Having the US Tour card in the back pocket after a good year on the second tier Web.com Tour which included a win, The Gurgler’s favourite Aussie golfer also secured a place at next year’s British Open Championship after a storming final day at the Australian Open. This means a big 2016 to look forward to, and for us here at the Unofficial Rod Pampling Update as we’ll keep you posted throughout the year. Just the way you want it.
The triumvirate of Australian Golf is over, and it was a mixed bag. A missed cut at the Australian PGA in his home state, was a slight disappointment for all his fans after storming home with a 10 under in the final round of the Australian Open the week before and were hoping that form would carry over the border. A tie for 32nd at the Masters was a reasonable return.
That 10 under par last round of the Australian Open gave all his many fans, The Gurgler included, hope for a highly unlikely victory after starting the fourth round almost a shot a hole back from the Round 3 leaders. Although it didn’t end in victory, it sure looks like a great Lawrence (Springborg) into 2017.
That’s a quick run down of the Australian Summer of Golf, below we have the current ranking and a full rundown of this season’s results.
We will continue to chart the success of Rod Pampling on the US PGA Tour next year, so stay tuned to The Gurgler for your regular update.
