Among the dozen or so UTA fans following Maverick director of golf Stuart Deane today was senior golfer Nick Barney. Like Deane, Barney is a native of Brisbane, Australia but he has a couple of reasons for attending this week's PGA Championship. He is related to Aussie PGA TOUR member Rod Pampling. Barney supported cousin Pampling at the Masters Tournament in April and at the World Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio last week. He actually caddied for Pampling in Monday's practice round at Quail Hollow Club.
Pampling is 63rd in the current FedExCup ranking and has three career PGA TOUR victories.
