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. Jun 27 - 6:43 AM

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 Web.com 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.

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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.
