Pampling ends 10-year wait for Tour title at Shriners
The drought is finally over as Rod Pampling ended his 10-year wait for a third PGA Tour title by winning the Shriners Hospital for Children Open.
Pampling's last Tour win was in 2006 - at the Bay Hill Invitational - until Sunday, when the 47-year-old carded a six-under-par 65 for a two-stroke victory in Las Vegas.
The Australian veteran led after the opening two rounds, but he was overhauled by 2009 U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover on the penultimate day at TPC Summerlin.
Glover, though, was unable to maintain his form as Pampling tallied eight birdies, including the 18th, to secure victory, finishing 20 under through 72 holes.
Brooks Koepka ended the tournament as runner-up, two shots behind Pampling following a final-round 67.
A shot further back was Glover, who had back-to-back bogeys to close out a two-under-par 69, dropping to third in the process.
Italian Francesco Molinari produced a memorable round, holing eight birdies and an eagle for a 10-under-par 61 as he climbed 42 positions into fourth, alongside Harris English (67) and Geoff Ogilvy (68) at 16 under.
Keegan Bradley (66), Kyle Stanley (67) and Pat Perez (68) tied for seventh after ending the event 15 under overall, while Shawn Stefani (66), Sean O'Hair (68), Aaron Wise (68), John Huh (68) and Cameron Smith (68) rounded out the top 10.
