GREENVILLE, S.C. — Rod Pampling went wire-to-wire in winning this week’s BMW Charity Pro-Am Presented by SYNNEX Corporation. The 45-year-old native of Australia opened with rounds of 63-63 at the three-course event, then held on with rounds of 69-66 at Thornblade Club in Greenville for a two-stroke victory over Kelly Kraft.

“It’s mostly that you listen to people who say you can’t back up (good rounds),” said Pampling, who moves to No. 8 on the Web.com Tour Regular Season money list. “There’s no reason why you can’t. So I went out there with the attitude, ‘If I don’t get off to a good start, not to worry,’ because I knew I was playing good.”
