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 Tour form suggests that Flores could post a career best here in Irving, Texas. May 19 - 5:47 PM

Martin Flores sleeps in his own bed this week as he preps for the AT&T Byron Nelson.

The Dallas resident is playing without status at the moment, but sports a 7-for-8 record on the Tour this season as he attempts to play his way back to the big leagues. Four of those have gone for top 10s. Flores decided to alter his game a bit last year and ended up falling short of the FedExCup Playoffs while he worked out the kinks. His lone start of the 2015-16 season was a T12 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Playing on a sponsors exemption this week, Flores will try to make a big splash as he tees it up just 30 minutes from his home course of Royal Oaks Country Club.

Martin Flores carded a 5-under-par 65 in the first round of the Panama Claro Championship and joins John Merrick in the 18-hole lead.

Flores bagged five birdies without a blemish on his trot around Panama GC. Flores has spent the better part of the past few seasons on the PGA TOUR. Judging by the opening round of the Tour season, he is a bit of a hurry to get back to the big show.
Jan 30 - 8:13 PM

Martin Flores tacked on a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to wrap his fourth appearance at 13-under 275.

Flores finished 156th in the FedExCup standings last season and subsequently missed the Playoffs for the first time since his 2010 rookie season. This week, he was the only one (of four) Open Qualifiers to make the cut and began his final round at 10-under (T14) and four off the pace. The 33-year-old, who went off the 10th tee, circled four on the card to offset a lone bogey at the par-4 eighth (his 17th) to bump up four places on the live leaderboard to T10. He dropped a six-footer for par at the ninth to avoid the bogey-bogey finish. Flores is currently not in the published field at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba and should his top 10 hold, he would be granted an exemption should he accept. His previous best at the SFC was T20 in the 2010 edition at Annandale GC.

The third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship was suspended by darkness at 4:48 p.m. CT with play scheduled to resume on Monday at 7:00 a.m.

Flores sits at 5-under on the day (thru 12 holes), 10-under for the tournament, and will attempt a 42-footer for birdie at the par-3 fourth when play resumes. When the horn sounded, he was rolling with three straight circles on Nos. 1-3 to pull to within three of the lead. None of the 74 finished their third rounds, with 12 players having completed at least 15 holes (threesomes/split tees). If you're keeping score, this is the seventh suspension of play since the tournament began and second related to nightfall (R1 on Thursday). Flores, the only one (of four) Open Qualifiers to make the cut, was one of those on the unlucky side of the draw, having to play 15 holes on Sunday morning just to complete his second round.

Martin Flores submitted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Flores is 80-for-140 on the PGA TOUR and he's only 33 years of age, but he's a non-member for the first time since 2011. That's why he was relegated to open qualifying for the SFC. He's taken advantage of the opportunity early, going 5-for-5 in scrambles with five birdies at the Country Club of Jackson. Two of his par breakers ranged 14-16 feet. Short of a win and contributing non-member FedExCup points in pursuit of Special Temporary Membership, Flores can secure an exemption into next week's OHL Classic of Mayakoba with a top 10 this week.

Overnight co-leader Martin Flores chased his opening 67 at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship with a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in today's second round and posted 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole lead.

He parred the entire front nine, and then sandwiched three birdies in between bogeys at Nos. 10 and 17. That he leads with such a low number after two rounds in a Tour event is a testament to the challenge presented by Ohio State University's Scarlet Course. Flores has done himself a service by landing 27 greens in regulation through the midpoint. Fellow overnight co-leader Alex Aragon blew up for a 5-over 38-38=76 with just one birdie against six bogeys; he hit nine GIR. The quartet at 4-under 138 includes former PGA TOUR members Roberto Castro, Sam Saunders and Luke List. Five more golfers are just two swings adrift of Flores.

Martin Flores registered a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, good for a share of the overnight lead with Alex Aragon.

Flores finished 156th in the FedExCup standings on the PGA TOUR this year, so his only conduit back to the big time is via the Tour Finals. He arrived for the third leg in Columbus, Ohio, at T68 on the list used to fill the 25 spots available for TOUR cards next season, but it takes only one strong week to get the job done. The 33-year-old hit 14 greens in regulation and scattered five birdies at Ohio State University's Scarlet Course today. His only blemish was a bogey at the par-3 fifth hole.

Martin Flores feels the FedExCup pressure ahead of this week's Wyndham Championship.

After three straight years of playoff appearances, the Oklahoma Sooner currently sits at 153rd on the FedExCup leaderboard. After missing the cut in 12-of-29 starts, Flores currently ranks 117th in the all-around ranking. Motivation is a powerful tool, but Flores may be turning the key a little too late this year.

Martin Flores opened the Barbasol Championship with a 5-under-par 33-33=66.

He went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Grand National's Lake Course today and went 7-for-15 in scoring chances for seven birdies. Four of his conversions disappeared from outside 13 feet, the longest taping off at 37'11" at the par-4 second hole. He ranked second in strokes gained: putting at last check with a clip of 3.510. Flores also squared two bogeys, but he's in terrific position as he continues to chase his first victory on the PGA TOUR. This is his 136th starts.

Martin Flores enters this week's Greenbrier Classic slotted 146th in the FedExCup standings.

Flores is 3-for-4 at the par-70 Greenbrier Resort with his paydays since 2014 reading: T75/MDF, T54 and solo sixth in 2012. At the 2012 edition, Flores was T2 after 18 and 36 holes, opening in 64-68. He played steady on the weekend, closing in 69-67, falling off the brisk pace of the leaders only slightly. The solo-sixth place still ranks second (World Ranking Points wise) in 133 career PGA TOUR starts. The 33-year-old is 13-for-23 on the season with two top 25s (T17, Honda Classic; T16, Puerto Rico Open). He hasn't cracked the top 30 in 11 starts since the PRO however.

Martin Flores turned in a 3-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Flores lives in Dallas and made his PGA TOUR debut in 2006 at this tournament, but he's just 2-for-6 with zero top 40s here. Today's score matches his previous best (twice) at TPC Four Seasons. He hit only 10 greens in regulation but converted five times for birdie, including runs of 25'4" and 22'5" at Nos. 2 and 18, respectively. Bogeys at 12 and 13 left him 6-for-8 in scrambling, but he parked it five shots off the overnight lead.

Martin Flores turned in a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 8-under 136 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Flores went out in the second threesome off the first tee this morning and torched Quail Hollow Club for eight birdies, including four in a row beginning with a 17-footer at the par-4 fourth hole. Three other birdies found the cup from outside 10 feet, the longest measuring 27'5" at the par-4 ninth. If there was a negative, it's that he went just 2-for-5 in scrambling with three bogeys. The winless Texasn is competing in his 129th PGA TOUR start.

Martin Flores ranks 152nd in the FedExCup standings and is in the published field at THE PLAYERS this week in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

The 33-year-old Texan is 1-for-2 at TPC Sawgrass with a T48 last year on rounds of 70-71-74-72. On the season he's barely batting 50 percent with nine made cuts in 17 starts. He peaked some interest in early March with consecutive top 20s at The Honda Classic and Puerto Rico but promptly missed four of his next five cuts to fade into fantasy oblivion.

Martin Flores looks to bounce back from a pair of missed cuts as he preps for this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Texan remains comfortable in his home state but is wishing he could retroactively go back and change his Thursday tee time last week at the Valero. Flores was on the wrong side of the weather draw and it yielded an 11-over 83 that couldn't be erased come Friday. He was 0-for-3 at this event before last year's T17, so gamers should be optimistic but also realistic.
