Andres Romero returns to the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in Virginia Water, England after a break of nine years.
One of the great enigmas of world golf, who broke back into the headlines with victory in last year's BMW International Open and might not be the massive outsider the bookmakers make him. Back in 2007 he made his tournament debut, finishing T12, a year later he was T6 and in between he got more course action when a quarter-finalist in the HSBC World Match Play Championship. In 2009 he was T54, but made the cut with plenty to spare. His biggest problem appears to be Saturdays on the West Course. He averages 70.33 in R1, R2 and R4, but 74.67 in R3. His bad golf is poor but his A game excellent. Since T9 in last August's European Masters he has ten times failed to make the top 50 and only twice done so, both at home in Argentina, but the most recent was T5 at the end of last month. Plays tree-lined tracks well. May 23 - 7:03 AM

Andres Romero arrived at the Turkish Airlines Open on the back of four missed cuts and a T54 in Valderrama but he's in position to have another big week after an opening 6-under-par 31-34=65 left him just a shot off leaders Joost Luiten, Nicolas Colsaerts and Haydn Porteous.

The Argentine blows more cold than hot but ended a long victory drought when landing the BMW International in Germany at the end of June. It's mostly been a struggle since although he did post T9 in September's European Masters. Today, his attacking style paid dividends with an eagle, six birdies and two bogeys. The 36-year-old, who sits 80th on the Race to Dubai, traded a birdie at 4 with a bogey at 6 but then soared up the leaderboard by playing his next six holes in 6-under courtesy of birdies at 7, 8, 9 and 11 along with an eagle-3 at 12. He hit 7-under with another gain at 15 before dropping his second shot of the day at 16. This is his tournament debut.

Andres Romero will make his first visit to the Turkish Airlines Open when he tees it up at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort this week.

What a bewildering yet career-rebuilding season the Argentinian has had. It began with no card on either side of the Atlantic, took in four missed cuts in nearly six months, included a stunning victory in the BMW International Open in late June, five cuts with little impression followed, then a top ten in Crans amongst five missed cuts after that, and he was last seen recording T54 in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters. It's his first visit to Turkey and it's not entirely out of the question that the track draws his better golf because he's not averse to playing well within trees (which this course is), as evidenced by his win at Eichenried this summer. 80th on the Race to Dubai so plenty to play for.

Andres Romero rides the crest of a golfing wave to Paris for his third appearance in the Open de France at Le Golf National.

What a blast from the past last week’s win was, although with other winners on the ET this year including Alvaro Quiros and Edoardo Molinari it does feel very like eight or nine years ago. Romero had made just four starts in 2017 ahead of his trip to Munich, one at home, three on the PGA Tour, and never made the weekend once. Talk about taking your chance. When he got a sniff, he pounced with a wonderfully composed birdie-chase on the back nine Sunday, which even he laughed was lacking his usual drama. With a superb Open Championship record (three times T13 or better) he’s worth keeping an eye on in the next three weeks: there are three spots per week available to the top non-exempt players in each top ten. On the other hand, maybe wait for the real links golf (staring next week). He’s twice played Le Golf National, never made the cut and only once broken 74.

World No. 837 Andres Romero played a scalpel-like final 11 holes to win the 2017 BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, carding a 7-under-par 34-31=65 to total 17-under 271, winning by one from Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland and Thomas Detry.

The Argentine golfer has been in competitive limbo this season, having lost his PGA Tour card and only played this week on a BMW invitation; he repaid the offer in style. That said, through seven holes he was becalmed, notching nothing but pars. However he then made back-to-back birdies and never looked backwards from there on in, first hunting down the leaders with more red at 11, 13, 14 and 15, the latter three from inside 15'0". He needed to make a superb up-and-down to save par on 17 which kept him in a four-way tie for the lead. But a massive drive on 18 helped him find the middle of the par-5 green in two. His first putt came up 8'0" shy, but he drained the birdie effort, had set a target, and celebrated with tearful compatriot players and caddies when it wasn't matched.

Andres Romero fired a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in round three of the BMW International Open in Germany but was left to rue a walk-off bogey at 18, the dropped shot landing him at 10-under 206 and three behind joint-leaders Sergio Garcia and Richard Bland.

In fact, the Argentine would have been leader on his own had he swapped two 6s on the par 5s for birdie-4s. The 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie is remembered as much for being the one that Sergio lost as Padraig Harrington's victory. But Romero finished just one shot out of the play-off after a double bogey-bogey finish that day in a remarkable 10-birdie 67. Perhaps it's a shame Harrington isn't here to complete a possible re-enactment in Sunday's closer at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried. Romero showed his love for a birdie again today with three straight from the 3rd before swallowing bogey-6 at 6. He made further gains at 9, 15 and 16 before his blemish at the last. His only European Tour win came here in Germany the week after that drama at Carnoustie so this would end a 10-year wait.

Andres Romero aced his way to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried on his return to the European Tour stage; the round was good for T6 at the end of the BMW International Open first round.

The 36-year-old Argentine golfer was last a full-time performer in Europe way back in 2008 (and even then he played the minimum number of events). But he accepted an invitation this week and is making the most of it, reviving memories of his only victory on the tour, at the Deutsche Bank Players Championship of Europe at Gut Kaden near Hamburg. He lost his card on the PGA Tour last season and has made fleeting appearances around the world so far this year, but arrived having missed four straight cuts at home and in the States. He started on the back nine and made three birdies at 11, 13 and 18. On the front nine he made a hole-in-one at the 227-yard par-3 second with 5-iron and followed it with a circle round No. 3. Back-to-back bogeys came at 7 and 8, but he made some amends to close with a birdie-4 at the 9th.

Andres Romero made quick work of Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course, posting a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round one of The RSM Classic, earning him a spot inside the top 10 as play winds down for the day.

The Argentine had full control of the flat stick today. Opening on the 10th tee, he rolled in five putts from outside eight feet before even making the turn. Most notable were back-to-back birdie bombs from 20'6" and 28'9" starting at the par-3 12th hole. Romero walked off the host course gaining 4.122 strokes with the putter. Playing his seventh round at Sea Island Golf Club, this goes in the books as just his second under-par round and eclipses his previous best by a whopping five strokes. It's unlikely his putter can maintain this torrid pace as the week progresses, but he's given himself a nice canvas to work with.

Following a 5-under 67 to open his week at he Sanderson Farms Championship, Andres Romero piled on a 3-under-par 33-36=69 during round two, reaching 8-under 136 heading into the weekend.

The Argentine split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation today. While his putter was inconsistent on the whole, it came through in a big way with three birdie bombs dropping from the 16-to-22 foot range. Through two days at the Country Club of Jackson, Romero has gained 2.129 strokes off-the-tee (8th in the field currently) en route to 13 birdies. The 35-year-old finished T20 here in his debut last year, and is well on his way to a second top 25 so far.

Andres Romero is looking for fireworks at this week's Sanderson Farms Championship, hoping to build some momentum that could earn him some more starts in the future.

The Argentine is playing on Past Champions status, as the winner of the 2008 Zurich Classic. That means starts will be tough to come by for Romero who is making his 196th career start on the PGA TOUR. Romero finished T20 last year in his Sanderson Farms debut. The 35-year-old will need to improve upon that solid finish this week, if he wants to put a dent into his FedExCup piggy bank. His results at the recent Tour Finals went as follows: MC-MC-T58, and he posted just one top 30 in 18 starts during the 2016 calendar year, across the PGA TOUR and WCT.

Three (of 27) who were stranded due to darkness in Friday's second round of the Shell Houston Open did not return on Saturday morning to complete their respective rounds.

At the time of this rendering, the count is three players, including Andres Romero, who gained entry this week via his top 10 last week in Puerto Rico (T5). He was 4-over on his loop thru 16 holes and on 6-over total. With just two holes remaining and the projected cut at 1-under 143, the 34-year-old chose to call it quits. Joining Romero was Ricky Barnes, 7-over total with two holes remaining, and rookie Brett Stegmaier, 7-over total with four holes remaining. There is no current information suggesting any of these WDs were due to injury.

Andres Romero crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 on day four of the Puerto Rico Open to reach the finish line on 10-under 278, up 14 spots to a three-way T5, and good for his first top 10 of the season in his fifth start and an exemption into this week's Shell Houston Open.

Unlike the four PRO debutantes who finished ahead of him on the leaderboard, Romero was making his fifth straight appearance. He's had success here before, opening the 2013 edition in twin 65s to lead by one after 36 holes, but a third-round 75 derailed him before finishing up with 66 and T6. The Argentine, playing out of the Past Champion category after failing to meet the terms of his Minor Medical, began his final frame on 5-under (T19) after posting 70-73-68. He hit all 18 greens in regulation but posted a pedestrian 1.889 putts per GIR, circling birdies on the par-3 sixth, the par-5 second and 18th, respectively, and a one-putt eagle-3 on the par-5 fifth. For the week, the 34-year-old was 68th (of 69) in putts per GIR at 1.904 and was T48 in birdies with only 13, but he was T5 in total bogeys with just five.

Andres Romero takes his talents to California for a fifth appearance at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Playing out of the Past Champion category after failing to meet the terms of his Minor Medical Extension, starts are not easy to come by for the Argentine. He makes his fourth start of the season, with a 1-for-3 record entering the week. Romero's track record at this event is nothing to write home about, either, with nothing better than last year's T52 on his resume in four tries. Gamers should look elsewhere this week as the Argentine shows no hint of form or course history.

Andres Romero settled for an eight-way share of 20th place at the Sanderson Farms Championship worth $41,358.75 and 26.25 FedExCup points.

He opened an closed strong with 66 in the first round and 67 in the finale, but with a pair of even-par 72 sandwiched in, the Argentine fell short of his terms on the one start provided via a Minor Medical Extension. Romero needed no worse than an eighth-place finish at the Country Club of Jackson to secure the promotion to the Major Medical category. As a result, he'll tumble in the Past Champions category for the remainder of the season. For the record, the 34-year-old came up short of the primary terms by $83,858 or 120.139 FedExCup points. He fell shy of conditional status by only 22.912 FedExCup points. Nevertheless, he received a sponsor exemption into this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba where he's 0-for-3.

Andres Romero toured the Country Club of Jackson in 6-under-par 35-33=66 in today's opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

This is his only start on a Minor Medical Extension given as a result of his broken hand suffered when he punched a tee sign in Reno almost three months ago. He needs no worse than a solo eighth-place finish in Mississippi to meet the terms of the medical and get promoted to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season. At last check, Romero sat alone in third two strokes off the clubhouse lead, so he's on his way. He hit 14 greens in regulation and connected on six par breakers, including an eagle from 14-and-a-half feet at the par-5 11th hole. His longest conversion of the round, however, dropped for par from 25'10" at the par-3 seventh.
