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. Nov 9 - 5:54 PM

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.

Andres Romero has committed to next week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

We last saw him on TOUR at the Barracuda Championship when he broke his hand punching a tee sign during the third round. After a couple of odd and confusing hours, he withdrew. Unable to compete again the rest of the season, Romero finished 161st in the FedExCup standings. In his only start during the Tour Finals, a T24 at the finale didn't secure one of the 25 cards up for grabs. Nevertheless, he was granted one start on a Minor Medical Extension to collect $125,217 or 146.389 FedExCup points for a promotion to the Major Medical category. Since the SFC is an opposite event, he'd need no worse than a solo second (worth 165 FedExCup points) to reach his objective, but a solo eighth pays $127,100.00, so that's his target. Coincidentally, a solo eighth is exactly what he'd need to qualify for conditional status as only FedExCup points contribute to that. It rewards 50 FedExCup points; his goal is 49.162. So, he'll either get promoted or drop into the Past Champions category.

Andres Romero is omitted from the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

Well, that fateful punch of the tee sign at Montrêux last week has cost Romero his PGA TOUR card, at least via the top 125 in either FedExCup points or earnings for the first time in his eight-year career. He's 157th and 140th, respectively, so if he's able, you'll see him at the Tour Finals, presumably. There's always the outside chance that the Argentine will receive a start on a medical extension, but don't hold your breath.

Andres Romero recorded minus-9 points in today's third round of the Barracuda Championship to post a 54-hole total of 11 points, down 52 spots on the leaderboard. UPDATE: Romero withdrew after the third round with a hand injury.

Romero began the day at 20 points (T14) and six points back. After overshadowing four birdies with five bogeys thru 14 holes, including back-to-back squares on Nos. 13 and 14, the 34-year-old apparently punched the tee sign on the 15th tee box, injuring his right hand. On the 15th tee, he putted the ball off the tee box and then picked up his ball, accepting the worst score he could take (minus-3 points) in the Modified Stableford format. After the 15th hole, he continued this same process for each of his three remaining holes. The injury comes at an inopportune time for Romero, who sits 155th in the FedExCup standings with just three weeks (four events) remaining until the FEC Playoffs begin. He's not in the field at next week's PGA Championship so the earliest we could see the Argentine back in action is August 20th at the Wyndham Championship.
Aug 8 - 8:58 PM

Andres Romero tossed on another eight point in today's second round of the Barracuda Championship, reaching the break with 20.

He's only four points off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Today at Montrêux, Romero went 5-for-14 in scoring opportunities with five birdies, none longer than the conversion from 15'9" at the par-4 10th hole. He also squared two bogeys. If you're in a game that includes this tournament, he's given us zero reason not to remain faithful on the weekend.
Aug 7 - 3:55 PM

Andres Romero gathered 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship to check up three points off the clubhouse lead.

With top-three finishes at Montrêux in 2012 and 2013, we already knew that the Argentine loves himself some Reno, but he also rolled in with recent form, picking off top 10s and another pair of top 25s in his last six starts. Today, he covered a lone bogey at the par-4 15th hole with five par breakers. That set was highlighted by a hole-out for eagle from the rough nearly 15 yards away at the par-5 second hole. Romero's longest conventional conversion tumbled in for birdie from 26'9" at the par-3 16th.
Aug 6 - 8:20 PM

Andres Romero salvaged a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to conclude at 12-under 272.

Romero began his final frame at 9-under (T12) and three off the pace of 54-hole, co-leaders Scott Piercy and Ricky Barnes. Remarkable since he was T71 after a first-round 71. The Argentine looked on his way to another disappointing round, overshadowing one birdie over his first eight holes with three bogeys, including two three-putts from distance on the par-4 first and the par-3 eighth. The 34-year-old rebounded by playing his last 10 holes in 5-under with birdies at Nos. 9, 11, 12, 14 and 16, highlighted by a 38'5" bomb at the par-3 12th for his longest conversion of the day. Romero, 168th in the FedExCup standings, striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation, but clocked in at -1.256 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. He currently sits T10 on the live leaderboard. His season-best on 20 starts is T6 at the Greenbrier Classic.
Jul 19 - 7:14 PM

Andres Romero toured Grand National's Lake Course in 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's second round of the Barbasol Championship.

With top 15s in two of his last three starts, the Argentine has risen to 168th in the FedExCup standings. Among all golfers outside the bubble for the Playoffs, Romero might be the safest bet to climb the ladder given he's retained his card since winning Rookie of the Year in 2008. Today in Alabama was the latest evidence of what he can do. In addition to going 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey, he connected for an eagle and six birdies, including on his last three holes. His longest par breaker was his first and it ran only 10'11" at the par-4 11th hole. At the time he signed his card, he shared the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 7-under 135.
Jul 17 - 1:14 PM

Andres Romero bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to wrap up his fifth appearance in the tournament at 11-under 269, good for a T6-finish.

Romero began the day at 8-under (T12) and three shots adrift. On his round, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies against four bogeys. In total, he racked-up 23 birdies, first in that category on the week. The 34-year-old's set on Sunday included an eye-catching six conversions from inside 11 feet and was culminated with a 57'3" prayer at the par-4 fourth. The Argentine squared bogeys at Nos. 2, 6, 7 and 15, three the result of three-putts, albeit from distance with each occurrence coming from outside 49 feet. Romero's T6-finish was his first top 10 of the season on 20 starts.
Jul 5 - 10:21 PM

Andres Romero turned in a 1-over-par 36-35=71 after today's third round of the 115th U.S. Open to post 1-over 211, five strokes back of the 54-hole leaders.

Romero, making his first U.S. Open start since a T47-finish back in 2009, began the day in a four-way tie for 17th at even par. The 34-year-old overshadowed two birdies with three bogeys, but with the majority of the leaders in retreat, he moved up eight spots on the board. The Argentine was 2-over thru his first 14 holes on Saturday, before bagging his two birdies on the day in back-to-back fashion at Nos. 15 and 16. The latter came the conventional way, rolling in a 14-footer, the former, a hole-out from the green-side bunker, 17 yards from the target. Romero has two career wins, one on the PGA TOUR at the 2008 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, and one win on the European Tour at the Deutsche Bank Players Championship of Europe in 2007. He also owns four top-10 finishes in major championships (last coming at the 2008 PGA Championship) but hasn't recorded any in two previous U.S. Open appearances.

Andres Romero returns to TPC Four Seasons Resort for his sixth playing of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Romero has missed 10 cuts in 15 starts on his season and enters the week ranked 198th in FedExCup points with 56. He collected 43 of those from a T24 at the Valspar Championship, his only top 25. The 34-year-old is 2-for-5 at the Byron Nelson with a T29 in 2012 and T22 last year. Romero's a tough add to fantasy rosters in any tournament but those adamant will cite correlations, like his only PGA TOUR victory did come on a TPC course (TPC Louisiana, 2008 Zurich Classic of New Orleans).
May 26 - 2:46 PM

Andres Romero has 18 professional wins worldwide and returns this week to the site of his only PGA TOUR victory, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Romero is 4-for-7 at TPC Louisiana winning his 2008 debut (which remains his lone title in 169 career TOUR starts). He's had a mixed bag since, adding just one top 30 (T8, 2011) in his last six visits. It's been a forgettable season thus far for the 33-year-old Argentine, going just 4-for-12 with one top 25 (T24, Valspar) slotting him 196th in FedExCup points.
Apr 22 - 7:00 PM

Andres Romero finds his way back to this week's Valero Texas Open for another look at TPC San Antonio.

Romero finished T46 last year after a T61 in his 2013 Valero debut. Year-over-year progress is good but his 2014-15 form is less than promising. The Argentine has collected just three paydays after nine starts with just one finish inside the top 60. Gamers looking to play it safe will avoid Romero in all formats at this week's Texas Open.
Mar 24 - 11:23 AM

Andres Romero is set for his seventh attempt to capture The Honda Classic title at PGA National's Champion Course this week.

While Romero tied for 12th in the 2014 edition, he had made just one of his first five cuts before that highlight. That was a T58 in 2011. His 2014-15 PGA TOUR season has been dismal. He ranks 219th in the FedExCup standings, having made just one of his six cuts. Perhaps this is where his season gets back on track, but it doesn't seem likely.
