After a rare mid-summer off week, the Web.com Tour proceeds to the Salt Lake City, Utah area for this week’s Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank. The event has been held since 1990 (although no tournament was played in 2007 or 2008). The list of past champions includes John Daly, Arron Oberholser, Brett Wetterich, Michael Putnam – and even reigning Open Championship winner Zach Johnson in 2003.
Here are 10 players to watch this week in Utah:
LEWISVILLE, Texas -- Idahoan Tyler Aldridge held off a host of challengers with a 4-under 68 in the final round of the Greater Dallas Open to win by two shots and earn his first Web.com Tour title.
Aldridge, the 54-hole leader, posted a 72-hole score of 23-under 265 and pocketed the $90,000 first-place check.
HAYWARD, Calif. -- Korea’s Si Woo Kim rolled in a three-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat Wes Roach and Jamie Lovemark and win the Web.com Tour’s Stonebrae Classic. The trio began the day as 54-hole co-leaders and each fired 2-under-par 68s to finish at 12-under 268 and force the fourth playoff of the season.
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Rod Pampling is the consummate professional, a veteran of many golf Tours around the globe, and he certainly knows the best way to handle any situation that presents itself on the golf course.
Pampling didn't have a prior blueprint for how to handle his emotions at last week's BMW Charity Pro-Am, however. Pampling's father, Ken, passed away on April 13, and the event marked his first competitive start since the death
