Travis Hampshire slips up at Nationwide Tour event

West Florida Golf Tour alum and former Purdue University standout Travis Hampshire failed to recover after a few bogeys to begin the back-nine en route to a tie for fourth place in the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am.

Hampshire began the South Carolina event with a mind-boggling 12-under par 60, before posting a second-round 68.

He then shot 70 on Saturday, which kept him in the lead through 54-holes.

But a 1-over 72 on the par-71 Thornblade Club track in Sunday's final round left Hampshire at 16-under par for the tournament.

That number was two shots behind Garth Mulroy and Sunghoon Kang, who battled in a sudden-death playoff.

Mulroy won with a par on the first playoff hole.

The pro-am tournament featured three different golf courses and a variety of celebrities in the field, including "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky.

To whet your appetite, check out this stellar shot from Hampshire's second round.
