Rod Pampling narrowly misses 59 in Vegas with 11-under round to lead Shriners

Rod Pampling was not supposed to be in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open this week. No really ... he was literally not supposed to be there. Pampling and 11 other golfers got into the tournament after a clerical error expanded the field from 132 to 144 .

Pampling did not waste any time proving he was excited to be in Las Vegas for the event. He shot a 60 in the first round of the Shriners on Thursday and missed an 11-foot putt on the final hole for what would have been the seventh 59 in PGA Tour history .
