Tano Goya posted five birdies against a single bogey in a first-round 4-under-par 34-34=68 at the BMW South African Open.
That's just three swings behind leader Jaco Van Zyl and, for now, puts the 27-year-old in tied third place. Goya again failed to secure full playing privileges on the European Tour last season but he does boast six pro wins, including one in South Africa (the Sunshine Tour's Dimension Data Pro-Am in 2014). The Argentine reeled off birdies today at 3, 4 and 9 on his front nine before picking up further shots at 11 and 15. He gave one back with a bogey-5 at the long par-4 7th. Jan 7 - 6:00 AM

Last week's Russian Open runner-up Tano Goya signed for a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-30=63 in round one of the KLM Open in the Netherlands.

After a pair of 67s and two 68s at Skolkovo, Goya shot his lowest 18 of the year at Kennemer on Thursday to get his name on the leaderboard again. To give that context, he'd shot just one round in the 60s in his previous 16 events. The Argentine was bogey free today and needed just 22 putts. He split 8 (of 13) fairways, hit only 12 greens in regulation but was 6-for-6 in scrambling. All seven birdies came in the final 13 holes after he'd opened with five pars on the par 70 at Zandvoort. Right now, he's two shots behind clubhouse leader Paul Lawrie.

Tano Goya authored a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round at the M2M Russian Open and is 7-under 135 at the midpoint.

That's just three swings behind leader Bradley Dredge and puts the Argentine in a tie for fourth. It's been solid stuff for Goya over the first 36 holes. He's split 22 (of 26) fairways, hit 15 greens in regulation in both rounds and is 5-for-6 in scrambling over his two rounds. He managed just one birdie and nine pars over his first 10 holes at Skolkovo Golf Club on Friday afternoon but circled three more on the back nine to put himself in a healthy position going into the weekend.

Tano Goya will make his debut at Firestone Country Club at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The 26-year-old Argentine has six career wins but none on the European Tour or PGA TOUR. This week will be his World Golf Championships debut, getting in the field with his Sunshine Tour win at the Dimension Data Pro-Am. His lack of experience makes him an easy fade for gamers this week.

With his victory at the Dimension Data Pro-Am on the Sunshine Tour, Tano Goya has earned an exemption into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Goya posted 14-under-par 275 at Montagu Golf Course in Fancourt, South Africa, one clear of four runners-up one stroke back. The 25-year-old Argentine has one European Tour win, but entered the week slotted 888th in the Official World Golf Ranking. He's 0-for-3 in majors and hasn't qualified for a WGC. "It’s my goal to one day play Word Golf Championship events and the majors," he said after his victory. "Getting into the WGC-Bridgestone as my first one will be a great experience and I am very happy to about the opportunity. I’ve never played at Firestone Country Club and now I can’t wait to get there."

Tano Goya is set for his first U.S. Open after earning a berth from the qualifier in England.

He’s not a complete stranger to major championship competition, as he missed the cut in the Open Championship in 2010. At the ripe old age of 25, he already has four wins to his credit across the globe. Despite that, don’t expect him to be doing much more than getting his feet wet both literally and figuratively at Merion this week.

According to a message he posted on Twitter, Tano Goya withdrew from this week's Austrian GolfOpen due to a muscle spasm in his neck and general malaise.

Goya wrote: "No me sentía bien hoy, estuve toda la semana con una contractura en el cuello y como desaganado asi que preferí retirarme..." The Argentine went out in 2-over-par 38 before calling it quits. He's listed in the field of next week's Vivendi Cup in Paris. He has marginal fantasy value in formats that include the European Tour, which is why he grabbed out attention today. He will not appear on our injury report.

Estanislao Goya followed an opening 69 with a 5-under-par 67 in the second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

The 20-year-old Argentine made the field on one of eight sponsor's exemptions reserved for Latin American golfers, and has taken full advantage. He's hit 27 GIR and taken just 55 putts through 36 holes, draining 12 birdies along the way. Goya owns a piece of the clubhouse lead.
