Roberto Castro will try and tackle TPC Deere Run at this week's John Deere Classic.
It's crazy to say this after a breakout 2013 season that yielded 13 top-25 finishes, but Castro may be on the verge of finding his form after two straights cuts made. That's the kind of season it's been for the Georgia Tech product, missing 12 cuts in 21 events played. Castro earned a weekend tee time in his TPC Deere Run debut last year, but fizzled over the weekend to the tune of 72-72. His propensity to go low makes him an interesting sleeper, but his inconsistent season makes him nothing more than that, a sleeper. Jul 9 - 10:18 AM

Roberto Castro missed the cut in the 2012 U.S. Open and returns for a second crack at it later this week.

Castro has struggled on the PGA TOUR this season, including missing his last four cuts, after a solid 2013 campaign. He is in the field this week via his top-30 FedExCup finish a year ago with a subsequent tee time in the TOUR Championship. At 139th in the current FEC Standings, it isn't the TOUR Championship that's on his mind this season, rather just keeping his card.

Roberto Castro has been removed from the published field of this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Just when he teased us with a T8 at Quail Hollow, Castro missed the cut by two strokes at TPC Sawgrass last week. He's currently 117th in the FedExCup standings with seven paydays in 15 starts. Don't bail on the guy, however, as he's already exempt into all of the majors.

Roberto Castro turned in a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to finish the tournament at 8-under 280.

The Georgia Tech product had a wild ride around Quail Hollow that included seven birdies and five bogeys to just six pars. The birdies were falling from everywhere, with five coming from outside 12 feet. The biggest highlights included a 54'11" chip in on the par-3 sixth and a 43'4" putt on the par-4 12th. Considering he entered this week off a run of four missed cuts and a solo 76th at the Shell Houston Open, this was an unexpected and nice surprise. It will easily erase a pair of T19s as his best finish of the 2013-14 season.

Roberto Castro will tee it up in the RBC Heritage for the second time in his career later this week.

Castro enters the week off a missed cut, and second-round 80, at the Masters. His history at Harbour Town isn't much better, posted 8-over-par 150 and missing the cut at Harbour Town last year. While last season was a breakout year for the Georgia Tech product, he's only 131st in the FedExCup standings this time around.

Roberto Castro has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Castro hasn't quite delivered on the kind of promise that 2013 portended. He's 5-for-9 and sits 110th in the FedExCup standings, but has nothing better than a pair of T19s. He's missed two of his last three cuts and has scored over par in eight consecutive rounds.

Roberto Castro may be in his third PGA TOUR season, but this is his first invite to the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Castro was trending, with back-to-back T19s at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, before missing the cut at The Honda Classic last week. Typically being a first-timer in an event in a disadvantage, but nobody in the field has competed on Trump National Doral since the Gil Hanse redesign. This is a major step up in class in relation to the field Castro normally competes against, so this will be a learning experience for both he and gamers.
Mar 3 - 9:55 PM

Roberto Castro is making just his fifth start of the season at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The WMPO is the 11th event on the schedule, so he's been patient. It makes sense given he's exempt into the first three majors and WGC-Cadillac Championship, but he hasn't maximized on his chances just yet. After a T35 at the CIMB as his only appearance in the fall, he's 1-for-3 in the 2014 portion with a T25 at the Humana. In last year's debut at TPC Scottsdale, he tied for 16th for what was his first of 13 top 25s in 29 starts last season.

Roberto Castro embarks on his third PGA TOUR season with the goal of winning his first event in the forefront.

The Georgia Tech product nearly pulled off the feat at AT&T National, finishing alone in second behind Bill Haas. Castro improved from 118th on the 2012 money list to 29th in 2013. For salary players, that may not be the best news as his price could be worth more than his relative value. Having made just one start in the new season, he tied for 35th at the CIMB Classic, which did not feature a cut.

Roberto Castro has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Down goes a potential contender. His only start this fall will be the CIMB Classic, where he tied for 35th place. The good news for investors is that he'll have first dibs on just about every tournament in 2014. Remain patient.

Roberto Castro blitzed East Lake Golf Club for a final-round 5-under-par 33-32=65 and ends his first TOUR Championship at 5-under 275.

The sophomore had a great great PGA TOUR season, nearly picking up his first win at Congressional in the AT&T National and making it all the way to the end of the FedExCup Playoffs. He began his finale with a bogey on the first hole, but played bogey-free 6-under the rest of the way. His 12 GIR were the worst of the week, but a solid effort with the flat stick and the short game kept him moving in the right direction. Look for his momentum to carry over into the 2013-14 season.

Roberto Castro turned in a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the TOUR Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Just another sizzling opener for the PGA TOUR sophomore. He went 4-for-15 in birdie chances, all of which from two feet and in. He missed two looks from inside 10 feet, but his longest conversion of the round measured just 7'4" for par at the fifth hole, yet still took it deep. Castro lives in Atlanta and played collegiately at Georgia Tech, but he's been a menace on the field almost everywhere on Thursdays since May.

Roberto Castro has scored top 25s in each of the first three legs of the FedExCup Playoffs and enters the TOUR Championship 24th in the standings.

Castro began his Playoff run at Liberty National with a T25, then tacked on a T9 at TPC Boston and a 15th at Conway Farms. It's been a stellar sophomore season, with the only thing missing his first PGA TOUR win. Perhaps he will shock the field and walk out of East Lake with that title.

Roberto Castro followed his opening 68 at the BMW Championship with a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in his second round to reach the midpoint in 5-under 137, six strokes off the pace of the 36-hole co-leaders.

Castro hit 15 greens in regulation and drilled home six birdies at Conway Farms today, but he squared four bogeys, two of which via the three-putt. Four of his par breakers tumbled in from outside 10 feet, the longest measuring 23'10" at the eighth hole.

Roberto Castro carded a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the BMW Championship.

Anything higher would be a surprise. Castro has made a name for himself as a PGA TOUR sophomore in going low to open tournaments. Given he's 25th in FedExCup points, he's under some pressure to play well to advance. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens at Conway Farms today en route to five birdies against two bogeys. His par breakers included respective conversions from 15'10" and 12'10" at Nos. 3 and 15. At the time he signed his card, he sat four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
