Cameron Joseph Tringale (born August 24, 1987) is an American professional golfer. Born in Mission Viejo, California, Tringale was a three-time NCAA All-American at Georgia Tech. He earned PGA Tour cards for 2010 and 2011 through qualifying school.

Amateur career[edit]

After graduating from Mission Viejo High School in 2005, Tringale attended Georgia Tech and won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship as a freshman.[1] He played in the 2007 U.S. Amateur Championship, where he lost his first round match.[1] He qualified again in 2009 and reached the third round.[2] Tringale was a three-time NCAA All-American, earning second-team honors in 2006 and 2007, and making the first team in 2009 as a senior.[3] He qualified for the 2009 U.S. Open but missed the cut, and he represented the U.S. that year as a member of the Palmer Cup and Walker Cup teams.[4]

Professional career[edit]

In December 2009, Tringale successfully gained a 2010 PGA Tour card through qualifying school, finishing T19.[5] He made his debut as a member of the PGA Tour at the 2010 Sony Open in Hawaii in January.[6] In 21 starts that season, Tringale made just more than $300,000, leaving him 176th on the money list.[7] His best finishes were ties for 11th at the Viking Classic and the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.[7]

In December, Tringale regained his PGA Tour card for 2011 by finishing fourth at Q-School.[7] That season he collected fourth-place finishes at the Greenbrier Classic and CIMB Classic and a fifth at the Texas Open.

He finished fourth at the 2012 Farmers Insurance Open, seventh at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and eighth at the Shell Houston Open. His best result in 2013 was third at the Tampa Bay Championship.

In the 2014 PGA Tour season, Tringale finished fourth at the Houston Open and Greenbrier Classic. Six days after the 2014 PGA Championship, Tringale disqualified himself after he realized he signed an incorrect scorecard. He originally finished T33.[8] During the playoffs, he tied for second at The Barclays.

Tringale was runner-up at the 2015 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
