Roberto Castro has gained entry into this week's Travelers Championship.
Castro was the third alternate when the field was released. He wiggled in following four withdrawals. He's saddled with conditional status. It's limited him to 10 starts in which he's cashed six times, none for a top 25. As a result, Castro is 194th in the FedExCup standings. He's 2-for-2 on the Tour this season but a mere 154th on the money list. At this point, aside from an out-of-nowhere performance, his sights should be set on finishing inside the top 200 in FedExCup points and chase down a card for next season in the Tour Finals. No doubt that this is his primary goal right now. Jun 22 - 12:47 PM

Robert Castro completed today's 36-hole U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Hawks Ridge Golf Club in Ball Ground, Georgia, in bogey-free, 12-under-par 64-68=132, good for the third and final berth into next week's major.

Finally, a bit of good news for the struggling 29-year-old. He circled 12 birdies today. He's hoping that the third trip is the charm given he missed the cut in 2012 and 2014. Matt NeSmith cruised to medalist honors at 17-under 63-64=127. He recently won the SEC Championship. Today, the South Carolina Gamecock connected for one eagle and 17 birdies against just two bogeys. Lee McCoy of the University of Georgia and No. 4 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking took runner-up honors at bogey-free, 13-under 65-66=131 with 13 birdies. Notables that failed to qualify include: 134--Ryuji Imada ... 140--David Branshaw.

The restart of the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship has been pushed back three hours to 11:00 a.m. CT. UPDATE: Play resumed at 10:58 a.m.

With more rain overnight falling on an already saturated TPC Four Seasons, this delay is necessary. Flooding has been occurring throughout the Dallas Metroplex, so that they were even playing golf at all on Friday is a testament to the grounds crew. When play resumes, Roberto Castro will have one hole to complete. He'll be returning to the par-4 ninth. He's even on his round and 1-under for the tournament. The cut line is likely going to fall at 1-under 138, so he knows exactly what he needs to score. He needs the payday, too. The 29-year-old sits 208th in the FedExCup standings. Castro is one of 33 who were unable to finish the second round due to darkness. The start of play was delayed three hours in the morning.
May 30 - 9:03 AM

Roberto Castro is scheduled to tee it up in this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry when Alex Cejka withdrew today. Castro has been unable to grind out success from the conditional status category this season. He's cashed four times in seven starts but none went for a top 25. He's also 2-for-2 on the Tour but sits 136th on its money list. In his only previous appearance at TPC Four Seasons, he placed T29 in 2012.
May 25 - 1:31 PM

Roberto Castro turned in an even-par 36-36=72 at English Turn Golf & Country Club in the open qualifier for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, four strokes too many to join the playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.

Castro traded three birdies with as many bogeys to finish T40. He's cashed in four of seven starts this season on the PGA TOUR, but conditional status can be rough. As a result of failing to snipe a top 25, he's currently 204th in the FedExCup standings and 174th on the Tour where he's 1-for-1 with a T50. Other notables that fell short at the four-spotter include: 70--Vaughn Taylor; Craig Kanada; Bubba Dickerson; Edward Loar ... 71--Glen Day; Esteban Toledo; Brad Adamonis; J.J. Killeen ... 72--John Rollins; Michael Letzig; Kyle Thompson ... 73--David Gossett ... 74--Tim Herron ... 75--Chris Smith ... 77--David Mathis.

Roberto Castro survived a 5-for-2 playoff in the open qualifier for this week's Honda Classic.

Castro turned in a 65 at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, but needed extra holes to secure his berth into the field at PGA National come Thursday. He's 3-for-4 on the PGA TOUR this season, but hasn't finished inside the top 55. Saddled with conditional status, this week's start is a real bonus. Wes Homan also escaped the playoff. The PGA TOUR Canada member tied for 56th in his debut on the PGA TOUR at the Shriners in the fall. Tim Petrovic was the medalist at Mayacoo Lakes with a 63. The 48-year-old has Past Champion status this season. In his only other action in 2014-15, he placed T35 at the Sanderson Farms. With a 64, Jhared Hack took runner-up honors in the four-spotter. The regular on the PGA TOUR-Latinoamérica will be making his PGA TOUR debut this week. The field for The Honda Classic is now complete at 144.

With a 5-under-par 31-36=67 at El Camino Country club in Oceanside, California, in today's open qualifier for the Farmers Insurance Open, Roberto Castro was two strokes too high to force a playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.

He circled seven birdies, but two bogeys got in the way of what would have been a chance at his fourth start on the PGA TOUR this season. Castro, who is saddled with conditional status, is 3-for-3 in 2014-15, but hasn't fared better than a T58 at the Sanderson Farms. At last check, he was seventh alternate for the Farmers. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 66--Andrew Loupe ... 68--Josh Teater ... 69--Michael Letzig; Tom Johnson ... 70--Chris Smith; Stephen Gangluff ... 71--Scott McCarron ... 72--Chris Riley; Alexandre Rocha; Bubba Dickerson ... 73--Billy Mayfair; Kent Jones ... 78--J.J. Killeen.
Feb 2 - 8:44 PM

Roberto Castro has secured paychecks in each of his three starts to begin his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign.

Castro possesses only conditional status on the PGA TOUR, but has failed to finish any higher than a T58 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. That leaves him a distant 178th in the FedExCup standings. He needs to convert some of these weekend tee times into high finishes if he is to maintain or improve his status for 2015-16. His only top 10 last year was a T8 at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Roberto Castro has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

Castro was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry when Tom Gillis withdrew today. Castro failed to get the job done in the Tour Finals, so he settled with conditional status on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15. It's quite a demotion after advancing to the TOUR Championship in 2013, so he may be a nice find in deeper full-season formats. In his only previous start at Seaside, he tied for 27th in 2012.

Roberto Castro tied for 18th at the Wyndham Championship at 10-under-par 270 due in part to a final-round 2-under 68.

Castro improved from 144th to 135th in the final FedExCup standings, but misses out on the Playoffs. He made it all the way to East Lake for the TOUR Championship a year ago, so his inability to sniff a tee time at The Barclays is a bit of a surprise. While he has conditional status on the TOUR for 2014-15 (126-150 category), he must successfully navigate the Tour Finals if he is to capture full status.

Roberto Castro fired a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and is the first man in at 8-under 202.

Castro was hot at Sedgefield CC early, circling four birdies on his first five holes. He then surrounded his lone bogey at the par-4 13th with birdies at 12 and 14. Three of his birdies fell from outside of 14 feet, including a chip in on the par-4 14th from 27'9". He will now wait and watch to see how much ground he made up on the overnight leaders.

Roberto Castro enters this week's PGA Championship ranked 144th in the FedExCup standings.

Apart from the club pros, he has to be one of the very few players in the field faced with the possibility of playing the Tour full time in 2015 should he not pull himself together. A year ago he played his way to East Lake for the TOUR Championship, so this has been a concerning step back. Having missed three of his last four cuts, it's wise to look away.

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.

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.
