Martin Flores arrives at THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass hoping for a big turnaround this week.
Flores posted a season-best 13th-place finish at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in the Dominican Republic, and he tied a season best with three straight made cuts. Things went south at the Houston Open, and he hasn't recovered. He has missed the cut in four of his past five events, with only a 59th-place showing at the Wells Fargo Championship last week as his only made cut in the stretch. Flores is enduring a tough stretch right now and even the heartiest of DFS players aren't using him as a contrarian play on this big stage. May 9 - 5:09 AM

Martin Flores might be a little amped up for this weekend's Houston Open, played in his home state of Texas.

The Fort Worth, Tex. native picked up a 13th-place finish at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, and he is hopeful that momentum carries over. It's been a slow go in the Lone Star State lately for Flores, as he has missed the cut in five of his past six events back home. However, he was 17th in the 2014 Houston Open, so he has proven he can be successful in front of the home folks before.

Taking on the North Course at Torrey Pines, Martin Flores cruised to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the Farmers Insurance Open, heading into the weekend on 7-under 137, good for a seat inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The Texan opened the week with a 2-under 70 at the South Course but put his foot on the gas today at Torrey Pines North. Flores found just 5 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens but his short game kept his card tidy. The highlight came at the par-4 14th where he holed out from the rough for birdie. Flores walked off the course needing just 16 swipes with the flat stick. The University of Oklahoma product entered the week with a 5-for-6 record at this event including a T8 during the 2012 edition.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 231 Martin Flores crafted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Safeway Open to reach 7-under 137, up 23 places on the live leaderboard to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Chez Reavie Bill Haas and past champ Emiliano Grillo. UPDATE: With play completed, Flores is T8, six back of 36-hole leader Tyler Duncan.

This is the 35-year-old's fifth Safeway with one previous top-60 finish among two cashes (T11/2012). He finished last season at 103rd in the FedExCup standings with seven top 25s and just two top 10s, one of those a T7 in the regular-season-ending Wyndham, which got him into the Playoffs (from 139 to 118 in FEC points). The Texan mustered four (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.915 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at No. 2, camouflaged by six circles at 10, 12, 4-6 and 8, three from between 12 and 17 feet. The Oklahoma alum posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.507 SG: Putting with 25 total putts.

Just days after playing his way into the FedExCup Playoffs, Martin Flores opened his week at THE NORTHERN TRUST with a 3-under-par 36-31=67, good for a share of sixth place after day one.

The Texan fired a career-tying-low, 7-under 63 (included an ace) in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to jump inside the top 125 (118th). With his PGA TOUR playing priviledges now secured, Flores is carrying over that momentum into New York. Taking on Glen Oaks Club for the first time, Flores split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. Four of his six birdies would come from the 7-to-15 foot range, while he also splashed home a 10'9" par-saving putt at the par-4 first. Flores arrived with four straight top 20s and there appears to be no slowing him down, at least not yet.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Jul 14, 2017 02:45:00 PM 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.
