The victory was the third of his PGA Tour career for Pampling, who also won the now-defunct International in 2004.

It puts him in the Masters for the first time since 2007, along with the PGA Championship for the first time since 2009.
“It’s self-belief,” said Pampling, whose wife is a psychologist. “And grinding on the Web tour gives you confidence you can compete against the younger guys.”
He became the fifth Australian to win on the PGA Tour this year, joining Jason Day, Adam Scott, Greg Chalmers and Aaron Baddeley.
Ogilvy had his best finish since he tied for second in the Deutsche Bank Championship two years ago. Keegan Bradley closed with a 66 and tied for seventh.

Bradley tied for sixth two weeks ago in Malaysia, giving him consecutive top 10s for the first time since March 2013.
Aaron Wise, the NCAA champion from Oregon, tied for 10th and earned a spot in the field next week in Mexico.

He was at No. 451 in the world ranking, but he played the final round as though he had never left. After missing the 12th green

with a wedge and then missing a 4-foot par putt to fall one shot behind, Pampling bounced back with a 12-foot birdie putt,

and an 8-iron to 18 feet for birdie on the 14th to catch Glover. Pampling made a 12-foot birdie on the next hole to keep pace,images-the-trophy

and his biggest shot might have been for par.
