Many chances at Nationwide Tour’s BMW
BY Bruce Young | Web.com Tour | 2011 BMW Charity Pro-Am | Round Three | 22 May 2011
The cut has been made at the BMW Charity Pro Am event being played over three courses on the border of North and South Carolina and it is the 30 year old Nationwide Tour rookie Travis Hampshire who leads by one over Korean Sunghoon Kang.
Hampshire gained his card for the Nationwide Tour at last year’s PGA Tour School after playing mini tours for several seasons while Kang is actually a PGA Tour rookie in 2011 but plays here as he was unable to earn a start at the Colonial event.
Kang was a golf medallist at the Asian Games during his amateur career and two years ago finished runner-up at Ballantines event in Korea. He has missed his last four cuts on the PGA Tour but has a great chance to win here tomorrow.
Played over three courses during the opening three days, the tournament returns to the host course, the Thornblade Club in Greer in South Carolina, for tomorrow’s final round with sixteen players within five shots of the lead in what has been a low scoring event.
Alistair Presnell leads the Australasians in a share of 9th position at 12 under and five from the lead while New Zealander Danny Lee is one shot further back in 17th position.
Peter Lonard, Bradley Iles and Andrew Buckle are 24th at 10 under and seven shots from the lead.
