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. Sep 25 - 7:05 PM

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.
Aug 19 - 6:34 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 11:07 PM

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.
May 15 - 12:16 PM

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.
May 5 - 9:01 AM

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.
Mar 31 - 6:16 PM

Martin Flores recorded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his third round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 3-under 213.

He was the fourth to conclude today's round with a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead. Flores is bouncing off a T17 at The Honda Classic. He tied for 19th here last year, so there was reason to suspect that the theory of converging trends was in play. Perhaps it is. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. Flores erased a lone bogey at the par-4 third hole with five birdies. Like many in contention, he's in pursuit of his first trophy on the PGA TOUR. This is his 122nd career start.
Mar 7 - 12:40 PM

Martin Flores punctuated a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in his second round of The Honda Classic with a birdie conversion from 55'5" at the par-5 18th hole.

It was his fifth birdie of the round and fourth from outside 11 feet. Flores also knocked in a par try from 14'1" at the par-3 15th. He couldn't avoid the big numbers, however, with two bogeys and two doubles peppering his card. Still, at 2-under 138, he's only five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Martin Flores shot a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of The Honda Classic to finish two strokes off the clubhouse lead

Flores has six paydays this season, but he's 166th in the FedExCup standings since none resulted in a top 45. Suffice it to say that he's a surprise early at PGA National. He split 12 (of 14) fairways, but found only 11 greens in regulation. While he squared three bogeys, Flores picked off six birdies. He opened with a 19-yarder from the fringe for a birdie-3 at the 10th hole. He added conversions from 38'1" and 23'1" at Nos. 4 and 8, respectively, both for birdie. And for good measure, the 33-year-old poured in par save from 11 feet at 14.
Feb 26 - 2:04 PM

Martin Flores makes his way back to Riviera Country Club for his third Northern Trust Open.

He's made each of his previous two cuts, tying for 46th in 2013 and sharing 70th last year. He's made six of nine cuts this season, but ranks just 160th in the FedExCup standings. That adds up to a great chance that he will make the cut, but contending seems out of the question.
Feb 17 - 8:55 PM

Martin Flores lapped La Quinta Country Club in bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the Humana Challenge to reach the midpoint in 11-under 133, four swings back of the 36-hole lead.

Flores has gone 13 consecutive starts with no better than a T56 at the Shriners last fall, so he's arguably the biggest surprise near the top of the leaderboard halfway into this tournament. Today, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and produced 14 opportunities to break par. He circled seven birdies, including on all four par 5s. The 32-year-old will grapple with Nicklaus Private at PGA West in the third round.

Martin Flores arrives at this week's Humana Challenge ranked 198th in the FedExCup standings.

Flores has a pair of Humana top 25s on his resume but is still searching for a way out of his 13 tournament slump. He hasn't finished inside the top 50 during this stretch. The course history is nice to see, but it's hard for gamers to invest blindly and hope his form turns around.
