Roberto Castro twirled a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the Barbasol Championship, reaching 9-under 133 at the midpoint, eight off the torrid pace set by Jhonattan Vegas.
Castro started the round with a three-putt bogey, but bounced right back with an 18'9" birdie roll at the par-4 second hole. Three holes later he holed out from the fringe (22'5") for eagle and then coasted until he swallowed a second bogey of the round, at the par-4 11th. It was smooth sailing from there as he birdied the remaining two par 5s, as well as the par-4 15th and par-3 17th. On the week, the Georgia Tech product ranks second in strokes gained tee-to-green but just 104th in strokes gained putting. If he figures out the flat stick over the weekend, he will become a real threat to pick off his maiden victory. Jul 15 - 5:47 PM

Roberto Castro enjoyed a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament for a 72-hole total of 11-under 277, up 38 places on the live leaderboard to T13. UPDATE: With play completed, Castro's 66 held up as the low round of the day and finished in a nine-way T11.

The 30-year-old was making his third appearance with a previous best of T21 on debut in 2013 (71-70-75-71). He missed the cut in his last visit in 2014 (76-71). We show all his previous scores as today's lap is not only the low round in the clubhouse, it's also his first in the 60s at Muirfield Village. Castro began the finale on 5-under (T50) after opening in 70-70-71. He went off No. 10 tee and outpaced a lone bogey at the par-4 13th with birdies at 11 and 18 to turn 1-under. The transplanted Georgian birdied the second from 22'7" and ripped off four straight circles on holes 4-7 to complete his scoring. Five of his seven birdies traveled greater than 12 feet contributing to 2.837 in SG: Putting, and bags his fifth top 25 of the season in 18 events and second in his last three starts (P2, Wells Fargo).

Roberto Castro stalled out to a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 9-under 279, and then lost to James Hahn's par on the first hole of sudden death.

The Tour grad is eighth alternate for THE PLAYERS and needed a win this week to get in. He was so close to winning, but back-to-back bogeys on 16 and 17 cost him, needing a 6'1" par putt on the 72nd hole to get into the playoff. Hahn, who bogeyed the 18th in regulation, was first to post out of the penultimate twosome but when the duo went back to the 18th for the playoff, Castro went first and yanked his tee shot into the water, eventually settling for bogey-5. He began the finale in solo second, one shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler and was bogey-free 2-under thru 11 holes, but squared three against two circles over his final seven holes. The 30-year-old was chasing his maiden title but settles for his second runner-up in 116 career starts joining solo second at the 2013 AT&T National, where he co-led thru 54 holes.

Roberto Castro pieced together a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in today's third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 8-under 208, one back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The 30-year-old is making his 16th start in 2015-16 with a best of T4 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms -- where he was the 18- and 36-hole leader. He began R3 this week in solo second on 7-under, one back of 36-hole leader and playing partner Andrew Loupe. The Tour grad found just six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, contributing to -0.382 strokes tee-to-green, but salvaged the round with 3.074 strokes gained: putting. He was tied for the lead on a few occasions, playing his first 17 holes in four birdies against two bogeys, and was tied for the top spot coming to the 18th, but missed the fairway and green en route to a walk-off bogey-5. Castro finished bogey-birdie-bogey and will play out of the final twosome for a second straight round.
May 7 - 6:57 PM

Roberto Castro crushed Quail Hollow Club on the way to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, signing for the low round of the day and reaching 7-under 137 on the week.

The Georgia Tech product opened on the back nine and began the highlight barrage with an 11'2" birdie roll at the par-5 10th hole. Four holes later he stuck an 114-yard wedge to 11 inches for a tap-in birdie. The real fireworks would come on the difficult par-4 18th, though. On a hole that's surrendering more double bogeys than birdies on the week, Castro skipped the birdie entirely and holed out from 221 yards for eagle. With the hole averaging north of 4.4 strokes, Castro picked up more than two strokes on the field right there. Coming into the clubhouse, Castro missed a 4'6" par-saving attempt at the par-5 seventh, so this round could have gone even lower. He entered the week with a 3-for-3 record including a T8 in his last appearance, and he's well on his way to another strong finish here at a course that fits his eye.
May 6 - 6:09 PM

Roberto Castro makes his way back to Quail Hollow Club for a fourth appearance at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Castro has enjoyed a bit of success at the venue, posting finishes of T32-T65-T8 in three trips. Only three of his 12 rounds have been over par. He also arrives with an 11-for-15 record on the season, collecting three top 25s along the way. That puts him just inside the top 100 in the FedExCup race, and certainly qualifies as good form by his not so lofty standards. Gamers may want to give Castro a look in DFS formats because that is where his value can surface most easily.

Roberto Castro handed in a 2-under-par 34-36=70 after the third round of the Shell Houston Open for a three-day tally of 9-under 207, down one on the leaderboard to solo sixth, two back of co-leaders Jim Herman and Jamie Lovemark.

The Houston native came back early Sat. morning to complete three holes of his second round and played those in par-par-bogey. He began R3 in a three-way T5 on 7-under after opening his fourth SHO in 65-70. The 30-year-old was 4-under thru 13 holes, erasing a three-putt bogey-5 at the fifth (from 42'0") with birdies on Nos. 1, 7, 9, 12 and 13, but toured his final five holes in birdie-less 2-over, squaring bogeys on 16, and for the second time today, the 18th, this time with a three-putt from 50'4". Of his five par breakers, three went in the conventional way, adding chip-ins at the par-4 first and the par-3 ninth. Castro leads the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a cumulative 11.664 but is 67th in strokes gained: putting (-2.701).
Apr 2 - 8:42 PM

Roberto Castro cruised to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round at the Shell Houston Open, grabbing a piece of the early clubhouse lead.

The Georgia Tech product took an unconventional route to the top today, landing just 11 greens in regulation, getting up-and-down flawlessly to remain blemish-free through 18. A large part of that was landing fringes instead of greens, keeping himself in good position to score, despite what the raw GIR stats might suggest. The flat stick caught fire in his opening nine holes, splashing in a 27'8" birdie on the par-4 12th and making the turn just after 16'3" and 18' birdie rolls on the par-4 17th and 18th holes, respectively. Castro entered with a 2-for-3 record at this event with a T36 in 2012 his best. He's well on his way to eclipsing that if the putter remains hot.
Mar 31 - 2:54 PM

Houston native Roberto Castro returns to his roots for his fourth playing of the Shell Houston Open.

The 30-year-old is 2-for-3 at the Golf Club of Houston cashing a T36 in his 2012 debut and a 76/MDF in his last appearance in 2014 -- including a third-round 83. His scoring average on the par-72 layout in 10 rounds is 73.10. The Tour grad began the season 10th on the priority rankings and currently sits ninth on the reshuffle with the third reshuffle coming at the conclusion of this week's action. He's 8-for-11 on the season with two top 10s, a T8 (AT&T Pebble Beach), and a T4 (Sanderson Farms), where he was the 18-hole leader after a career-best 10-under 62, and led at the midpoint as well. Castro is 19th on TOUR in greens in regulation but 192nd in strokes gained: putting.
Mar 30 - 9:44 PM

Roberto Castro back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to finish off a personal best in his fifth appearance at 10-under 277, down three spots on the leaderboard and into a three-way T8.

New daddy Castro began the finale on 12-under (T5) and four back of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson after opening rounds of 66-70-67. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even but played the first eight holes of his inward half in birdie-less 3-over before circling his third birdie of the day at the par-5 18th from 8'5". Four of his five squares were failed scrambles and the fifth was a three-putt from 80'5". The 30-year-old split 12 (of 14) fairways but mustered just 11 greens in regulation and settled for a disappointing 2.000 putts per GIR. The Tour grad heads to Riviera CC for this week's Northern Trust Open after recording his second top 10 of the season (T4, Sanderson Farms) in his eighth start.
Feb 14 - 6:14 PM

Roberto Castro rallied to a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 54-hole tally of 12-under 203, up three spots on the live leaderboard to T4 and two swings adrift of clubhouse leader Hiroshi Iwata. UPDATE: With play done for the day, Castro is in a two-way T5, four adrift of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson.

After opening in 66 (PB) and 70 (MPCC), the Tour grad began his day three adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Sung Kang and Iwata. He opened on the difficult Spyglass Hill GC by alternating birdie-bogey-birdie on his first three holes before squaring back-to-backs on five and six to turn 1-over. After the break, he recorded five straight pars before ripping off three birdies over his final four holes to complete his scoring. In total, the 30-year-old circled seven against three bogeys on nine (of 13) fairways and 16 greens in regulation.
Feb 13 - 6:01 PM

Roberto Castro handed in a 2-under-par 37-33=70 after the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 36-hole aggregate of 8-under 136, three swings back of co-leaders Sung Kang and Hiroshi Iwata.

Castro's down one place on the live leaderboard to T7 after chasing bogey-free 6-under 66 on Pebble Beach Golf Links with today's five-birdie against three-bogey tour of Spyglass Hill GC. He went off No. 10 tee and played his first half in bogey-free 3-under circling birdies at Nos. 15, 17 and 18, before alternating birdie-bogey-birdie to begin his inward half. The 30-year-old, who's making his fifth AT&T appearance, squared back-to-backs at the par-3 fifth and the par-4 sixth to limp to the finish. He totaled 10 (of 14) fairways, 12 greens in regulation, and regressed to 1.667 putts per GIR from 1.538 on day one.
Feb 12 - 6:23 PM

Roberto Castro torched Pebble Beach Golf Links with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 to open his week strong at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Becoming a father in late January, Castro is playing his first event since joining the club. The term nappy factor is often thrown around to reference the increased performance immediately following the birth of a child. Chalk this up as an early win for that theory as Castro split 12 (of 14) fairways on the day while keeping the pressure on with the flat stick. Most notable were the birdie-rolls from 55'2" and 41'2" on the par-3 fifth and seventh holes. Gaining 3.59 strokes with the putter on the day. Castro will now turn his attention to a slightly more difficult Spyglass Hill Golf Club for his round two tee time on Friday.
Feb 11 - 6:31 PM

The newest member of fatherhood, Roberto Castro, will be teeing it up at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Castro was an early WD at the Farmers Insurance Open two weeks ago. He had his priorities straight, as he was whisked away to see his wife give birth to their first child, Stella Castro. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket will put to test the always entertaining nappy factor which leads many to believe an increase in performance is expected following the birth of a child. Back to the actual facts, Castro is 6-for-7 on the season and 2-for-4 at the AT&T Pro-Am. He could be worth a shot in deeper fantasy formats.
Feb 10 - 6:17 PM

Roberto Castro has removed himself from this week's Farmers Insurance Open as his wife has gone into labor. Michael Putnam will take his place in the field.

Gamers should make sure they remove Castro from all lineups this week. Castro finished T56 at last week's CareerBuilder Challenge to improve his record to 6-for-7 early in the season. Due to the nature of this WD, gamers should be ready to jump back on the train whenever he tees it up next.
