Travis Hampshire goes super low at Nationwide Tour event

West Florida Golf Tour alum Travis Hampshire torched the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am in Thursday's first round.

He carded a 12-under 60 to take a five-shot lead into Friday.

Hampshire played the WFGT's inaugural season, earned a berth into last year's U.S. Open and locked up a Nationwide Tour card following his play at last fall's PGA Tour Q-School.

He had struggled, making just two cuts in six starts in 2011, before Thursday's opening round.

Hampshire posted a 7-under par 29 on the back nine en route to flirting with 59.

"I had a really good warm-up session this morning and you know that this is the kind of course you've got to take advantage of, it's got the softest greens of the three courses," said Hampshire, according to pgatour.com. "You knew you had to shoot a good round here to get off to a good start."
