In what’s been a logjam of a leaderboard for two-plus rounds, Cameron Tringale has finally created a little separation.
That’s what happens when you eagle the par-5 14th like Tringale just did, reaching the green in two and rolling in a 7 1/2 footer to get to 5 under on the day and 7 under for the week.
Tringale may be most notable for being Rickie Fowler’s former roommate in Las Vegas before Fowler moved to Florida at the end of last year, but if he keeps playing like this he’ll be known for a lot more.
The former Georgia Tech standout has struggled at times this season, but he’s also shown some promise -- he shot a third-round 66 two weeks ago in Houston and earlier in the year tied for 21st at the Northern Trust Open.
As for his round today? He’s rolled in a couple of lengthy birdie putts -- a 28-footer on No. 2, a 22-footer on No. 7 -- and he has just one bogey.
