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. Apr 21 - 7:42 PM

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.

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.

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.
