The Monday Recap: Notes from the PGA and Nationwide tours

  • Travis Hampshire, who has played the West Florida Golf Tour regularly, shot three straight 68s en route to a tie for 20th in the Nationwide Tour's Chitimacha Louisiana Open. Hampshire opened with a 74 on the par-71 Le Triomphe Golf and Country Club. He earned $6,060 a week after Monday qualifying for the PGA Tour's Transitions Championship where he would later miss the cut.
  • Fellow WFGT participant and former multiple PGA Tour winner Robert Gamez missed the cut in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge. Gamez carded rounds of 77 and 73 to miss the cut by two. He won the event back in 1990 when it was called the Nestle Invitational. Gamez also lives in the Orlando area and played the course during an episode of the Golf Channel's Playing Lessons with a Pro.
Check out this video on Gamez's remarkable iron shot to win the tournament back in 1990:

  • Tiger Woods struggled on the weekend to finish in a tie for 24th. The good thing for Woods was that, despite carding an even-par 72 on Sunday, he moved up five places as only six players in the field broke 70.
Stay tuned on the latest from the LPGA Tour's recent event where Bradenton's Jessica Korda got off to a decent start.
