World No. 275 Martin Flores tossed up a career-tying-low 7-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 15-under 265, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T6 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with J.J. Spaun and playing competitor Cameron Smith.
This was the Texan's sixth Wyndham, second top 25 (T16/2013), and first top 10. His 63 tied his career best in 520 rounds shot two prior times, most recently in the final round here in 2013. It's his seventh top 25 of the season in 26 starts, fourth straight, and his second top 10, and should better a T10 at the Puerto Rico Open back in March. After opening in 64-70-68, the Oklahoma alum began T23 on 8-under, four short of the overnight top 10. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, outpaced by six circles at Nos. 1-3, 5, 8 and 18, five from inside of 9'0" with a long of 22'9". The 35-year-old also aced the 171-yard par-3 16th. He's projected to jump 23 spots from 139th in the FedExCup standings to 116th. Aug 20 - 4:24 PM

Martin Flores feasted on Sedgefield Country Club in round one of the Wyndham Championship, racking up a season-low 6-under-par 34-30=64 to position himself inside the top 10 as play winds down on Thursday.

The Texan opened his day on the back nine and did most of his scoring before the turn. He circled birdies at 13, 14, and 17 while holing out from 33'5" for eagle at the par-5 15th. Flores traded two more birdies with a bogey on his way into the clubhouse. The 35-year-old arrived outside the FedExCup bubble (139th) but three straight top 20s has him making a late charge toward the finish line. This round will fall one short of his career low on the PGA TOUR (63) which he's fired twice. Both of those rounds came during final rounds, and one of them was actually at Sedgefield Country Club, during the 2013 edition.

Overnight leader and World No. 299 Martin Flores labored to an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open, falling 15 spots to T16 on 12-under 204, five shy of 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman.

After opening in twin 66s, the 35-year-old led by one over playing competitor Matt Every, his second career 36-hole lead/co-lead in 166 career starts. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.167 strokes off-the-tee and 2.308 around-the-green. The Oklahoma alum circled five at Nos. 2, 5, 11, 16 and 18, all from inside of five feet, cancelled by three bogey-5s at 3, 6 and 10, and double bogey-5 at 12, all failed scrambles. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and -1.386 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Martin Flores twirled a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the RBC Canadian Open, staking his early claim as the clubhouse leader with a two-day tally of 12-under 134.

The Texan split 11 (of 14) fairways today but parlayed that into just 12 greens in regulation. Instead, he leaned heavily on the flat stick, most notably a 19'3" eagle splash at the par-5 second and a 24'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 17th. The eagle was his second of the week, both coming at the par-5 second. At the time he signed his card he ranked T3 in strokes gained off-the-tee and 18th in strokes gained putting for the week. Flores fans have likely noticed him trending well lately, as he found himself T11 after R2 of the John Deere Classic and sat T6 after R2 at last week's Barbasol Championship. If this lead holds, it will be his second career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, with the other coming at the 2014 Wells Fargo Championship, an event he finished solo third by week's end.

Round one of the RBC Canadian Open was suspended due to darkness at 8:48 pm ET, with play set to resume at 8:20 a.m. Friday morning.

The field of 156 golfers nearly all completed their rounds today, despite a 1 hour, 55 minute, delay due to weather. There were just seven threesomes still on the course when the horn sounded. One of the last to finish was Martin Flores, who pieced together a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in round one. The highlight was an early eagle at the par-5 second where he belted a 344-yard drive to leave him just 170 yards on his second shot. He stuck that approach to 3'11" for a tap-in eagle. This is the second consecutive stellar start for Flores who opened with a 6-under 65 last week to co-lead at the Barbasol Championship. He would go on to finish T18.
Jul 27 - 9:05 PM

First-round quad-leader and World No. 305 Martin Flores back-pedaled with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the Barbasol Championship, falling five places on the live leaderboard to T6 on 9-under 133, six in arrears of 36-hole leader Chad Collins.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 35-year-old mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.681 strokes off-the-tee and 0.347 around-the-green. He squared bogey-5s at Nos. 18 and 2, both the result of errant tee shots, offset by eagle-3 at 16 from 13'1" and three birdies at 1, 4 and 6 (from 17'0"). The Oklahoma alum posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.792 SG: Putting, buoyed by a 16'10" par-saver at the 10th, but did miss three scoring tries from inside of nine feet.

Martin Flores feasted on Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National in round one of the Barbasol Championship, firing a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 to claim a share of the early lead alongside Cameron Tringale.

Flores was firing on all cylinders today, as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and setup nine scoring chances from inside 14 feet. He converted on six of them while also saving par from 10'5" at the ninth to maintain momentum. The University of Oklahoma product entered the week ranked 151st in the FedExCup race, in need of some points as the season starts to wind down. Flores has previously led/co-lead just once after 18 holes (2013 St. Jude Classic). He would fade to T47 by week's end, but the field is a bit thinner in Opelika, Alabama, so we should see Flores keep his name in the mix a bit longer this week.

Martin Flores flew through TPC Deere Run, escaping with a 6-under-par 34-31=65 during round two of the John Deere Classic, grabbing an early spot inside the top 10 with a two-day tally of 7-under 135.

Flores pieced together a ho-hum, 1-under 70 on day one. He improved in all four sub-categories of strokes gained metrics today. Most notable was the approach play, as he stuffed seven approach shots inside 13 feet. On top of that, he added a bonus birdie when he drilled a 28'1" bomb at the 15th. Given his recent form, this start is a bit of a surprise as Flores hasn't been inside the top 30 thru R2 since the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in February. Perhaps he is channeling his 2013 visit to TPC Deere Run where he posted four sub-70 rounds including a closing 8-under 63 to walk away with a T4 finish, the second-best finish of his career.

Web.com Tour grad and World No. 286 Martin Flores is in Potomac, Maryland, for the Quicken Loans National and arrives 147th in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: Flores finished T55 on 7-over 287 (68-75-72-72).

The Oklahoma alum is 2-for-4 at the QLN with a best of T21 in 2013 (Congressional CC), missing his last two cuts in 2014 and 2015. Along with a large majority of the 120-man field, he's getting his first competitive look at the par-70 TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, which tips out at 7,109 yards. This is the 35-year-old's 162nd career TOUR start and he owns just seven top 10s, one in his last 62 starts, a T10 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open nine starts ago. He's not completed 72 holes since, missing five cuts and three MDF's.

Martin Flores is back in Irving, Texas, for a home game at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

The Dallas resident missed the cut in his first four tries at this event, rattling off T43-T59-T39-T63 since then. On the season he ranks 134th in the FedExCup race thanks to a trio of top 25s in 15 starts. The biggest asset has been the flat stick, currently ranked T57 in strokes gained putting. With the local factor in his favor and decent season-long form, gamers could give Flores a look in deep formats this week.

Martin Flores coasted to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round four of the Puerto Rico Open, rising 16 spots on the leaderboard to finish T10 on 15-under 273.

The Web.com Tour grad improved in each round this week, finishing with a four-day score of 71→69→67→66=273. He took advantage of his length today, circling birdies on all four of the par 5s. His irons were dialed in all day, as he missed just one green in regulation but managed to get up-and-down to keep a clean card. Flores was racking up birdies all week as he finished with 23, bested only by Whee Kim. With this top 10, the Texas native (and resident) will earn a spot in the field at next week's Shell Houston Open.

Taking on Spyglass Hill Golf Course in round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Martin Flores fired a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68, arriving at the midpoint on 5-under 138.

The Web.com Tour grad fought through the blustery conditions in round one to record a 1-under 70 at Monterey Peninsula CC. He enjoyed a relief from the wind today, as he pelted 15 greens in regulation and splashed home four birdies without dropping a shot. Two of his four circles came on par 3s, holes No. 3 and 5. In three previous visits to the AT&T Pro-Am, Flores has played on Sunday just one time (T64 in 2010 debut). He currently finds himself on the fringe of the top 10 with play still in progress, meaning he's well on his way to a cut made this week as he readies for his next challenge, Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Feb 10 - 7:14 PM

World No. 238 Martin Flores takes his game to La Quinta, California, for the CareerBuilder Challenge and begins the 3-course rota at the La Quinta Country Club.

The Web.com Tour grad is making his fifth appearance and owns a pair of top 25s, including a best of T18 on debut in 2010 (when it was a 90-hole event). He missed the scheduled 54-hole cut in 2013, posted a T25 in 2014, and was T59 on last visit in 2015. The 34-year-old opened the season with a MC at the Safeway in Napa, but has since connected four straight paydays, highlighted by a T24 at the OHL Classic. He sits 9th on the WCT reshuffle with 59.013 FedExCup points.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Martin Flores fashioned a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach the midpoint on 8-under 134, up seven places to T10 with play still in progress.

The Web.com Tour grad is making his fifth appearance in Vegas and posted his second straight 67. He kicked off the week with seven birdies against one bogey and a double and tacked on six birdies in R2 against a pair of bogey-4s. The 34-year-old, who finished 5th in regular-season money last season on the WCT, mustered just five (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, but lost -1.370 strokes around-the-green going 1-for-3 in scrambling. On the good, he posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.256 SG: Putting at the time he signed his card. Five of Flores' six birdies came on his first half with four of the six dropping from between 10 and 16 feet.

Martin Flores pieced together a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, a home game for the Dallas resident.

Flores is making his eighth appearance this event, with nothing better than a T39 to show for it. Perhaps a bit of non-status motivation has done the trick as today's 5-under 65 is his second-best posted round in 20 attempts at TPC Four Seasons. Flores was just fine playing out of the rough today, splitting just five (of 14) fairways on his way to 12 GIRs. His flat stick bailed him out on many occasions today, splashing home six putts from outside five feet, his longest going for a 33'11" birdie roll at the par-4 14th hole. His course history suggests a fade is coming as the week progresses, but his scorching Web.com Tour form suggests that Flores could post a career best here in Irving, Texas.
