Miguel Angel Carballo blitzed Montrêux Golf and Country Club with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Barracuda Championship, collecting 14 points in the Modified Stableford scoring format to grab sole possession of the early clubhouse lead.
The Argentine made the most of the unique scoring format in use this week, carding two eagles to pick up a quick 10 points. He opened on the back nine and the first eagle dropped at the par-4 17th, holing out on his 160-yard approach shot. That came immediately after a 31'11" hole out from the bunker at the par-3 16th. His second eagle was more traditional, but equally impressive. It came at the par-5 second where he stuck his 287-yard approach shot to 8'1" and splashed it home. The four-time Tour grad is no stranger to eagles. He even carded three eagles in a single round way back at the 2014 Travelers Championship. Carballo has finished T17 and T9 during his last two appearances at this event, so it's safe to say he likes the aggressive style of golf needed to contend here in Reno. Thu, Aug 3, 2017 05:41:00 PM

World No. 631 Miguel Angel Carballo is in Oakville, Ontario, for his fourth RBC Canadian Open and arrives at 200th in the FedExCup standings.

The 38-year-old is 2-for-3 at the RBC with a best of T42 on debut in 2012. He finished 79th last year -- second-to-last -- on 11-over 299 (73-72-78-76). The Tour grad is just 6-for-19 on the season with one top 25, a T14 at the Sanderson Farms back in October. He's missed four of his last five cuts, sprinkling in a T50 two starts ago at the John Deere (68-68-68-72).

Miguel Angel Carballo turns his attention toward El Camaleón Golf Club ahead of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the 10th edition of the event held south of the border.

The four-time Tour grad will be making his fourth appearance at this event, missing the cut in all three trips while failing to record a single round in red numbers. The Argentine has an uphill battle to face with that course history, but a recent T14 at the Sanderson Farms Championship two weeks ago proves his game isn't that far off. Carballo finished 7-for-18 on the PGA TOUR last year but retained his card with some stellar play during the Tour Finals. The 37-year-old has won twice on the Tour, but there is nothing to suggest this will be the week his success finally translates to the big stage.

Miguel Angel Carballo finished three off the pace after signing a 5-under-par 31-35=66 during the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco, closing his week on 20-under 264 for solo second, also good enough to secure his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season.

The Argentine was making it a trend of earning his PGA TOUR card in odd-numbered years (2011,2013,2015) but he's not waiting until 2017 this time around. Carballo opened his round with an eagle and three birdies in the first six holes, grabbing a two-shot lead at the time. From there, he slowed his pace and got overtaken by Thompson in the end. Regardless, this solo-second finish moves him to third in The Finals 25 and secures his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season.

Miguel Angel Carballo coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-33=67 during the third round of the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco, entering the finale just one stroke back on 15-under 198.

The Argentine had a very similar ball-striking day when you compare it to his second-round 7-under 64. He split nine fairways in both rounds, found 15 greens in R2 and 14 greens today. The big difference was the putter, as he splashed in more than his fair share on Friday but found no such magic today, taking 28 swipes to make his way around Hillcrest Country Club. Still, his approach play allowed him a stress-free navigation on the greens, and he'll now enter Sunday just one off the pace with a great opporunity to lock down his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season.

Miguel Angel Carballo cruised up the leaderboard in round two of the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco following a 7-under-par 31-33=64, reaching 11-under 131 at the midpoint.

The Argentine had it clicking from the get-go, circling birdies in five of his opening seven holes today. He needed just 12 swipes with the flat stick before making the turn at 5-under. He added two more birdies and an eagle on the back nine but swallowed back-to-back bogeys at the par-3 13th and par-4 14th to avoid a clean card. Carballo finished 187th in the FedExCup standings so he's trying to fight his way back to the big tour. As a three-time Tour grad (2011, 2013, 2015) he certainly has the talent, but it just hasn't translated to the big stage quite yet.

With preferred lies in effect, Miguel Angel Carballo painted a week-tying-low 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day second round of the John Deere Classic to post 8-under 134, up 64 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 37-year-old ties the week's low round with four others and is a season best in 40 rounds, eclipsing 66 two times. It was one shy of his career low shot in R4 of the 2014 Travelers. Speaking of the Travelers, the Argentine was front-and-center for playing partner Jim Furyk's TOUR-record 58 last week, so surely some of that was contagious. He kicked off his third Deere with a three-birdie two-bogey 70 and chased with eight birdies against one bogey in R2. The Tour grad was 6-under thru 16 holes when play was nixed on Friday, and returned on Saturday to birdie the par-5 17th from 11'3".

Miguel Angel Carballo turned in a 3-under-par 33-36=69 after the final round of the Barracuda Championship to garner 8 points and post 30 points total, up five places on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 37-year-old was making his third appearance at Montrêux G&CC and brushes aside a previous-best T17 on last visit in 2014. He began the final round with 22 points (T12) and while 17 points behind 54-hole leader Greg Chalmers, he was just one point shy of the overnight top 10. The Tour grad landed 10 (of 14) fairways and mustered 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR. He bogeyed the 10th and 16th on failed scrambles but camouflaged them with birdies on Nos. 3, 4, 6, 11 and 18 with a long of 18'6" at the par-4 sixth. The Argentine also made two par putts between 10 and 13 feet on the back nine en route to his fourth cash of the season in 13 starts. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his first in 53 career events on TOUR.

Miguel Angel Carballo cruised to a 2-under-par 35-35=70, collecting eight points to reach 16 points through two days at the Barracuda Championship.

The Argentine opened his round with a bang, sticking his 265-yard approach on the par-5 second hole to 21'11", then rolling it in for eagle. He reversed his fortune on the next hole with a double bogey. In a regular PGA TOUR event, these holes would have washed each other out, but he netted +2 points today in the Modified Stableford scoring used this week in Reno. He splashed home four more putts from outside nine feet before the round was over, gaining 3.825 strokes putting on the round. Carballo entered the week just 3-for-12 on the season, ranking 207th on the FedExCup standings.

Miguel Angel Carballo styled a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to open his week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, currently two strokes off the pacesetters at the top.

The Argentine opened on the back nine and bartered for two birdies, giving up just one bogey in the deal. The real fireworks started after the turn as he circled a birdie at the par-4 first and then fired his 224-yard approach shot to just 9'3" at the par-5 third hole. He rolled that in for an eagle to reach 4-under. Carballo is making his third start at TPC Southwind, posting a missed cut in his 2012 debut and returning with a T53 last year.

Two (of 13) who were stranded due to darkness in Friday's second round of the Valero Texas Open did not return on Saturday morning to complete their respective rounds.

At press time, the count is two players, including Miguel Angel Carballo, who was making his third VTO appearance after posting T46/2014 and T24/2012. He was 3-over on his lap thru 16 holes and 7-over total. With just two holes remaining and the projected cut at even-par 144, the Tour grad chose to pack it in. Joining Carballo was playing competitor Tyler Aldridge, who was 4-over thru 16 and 4-over total. There is no current information suggesting any of these WDs were due to injury. That leaves the third member of the threesome, rookie Abraham Ancer, to finish as a solo, which he did, posting a 36-hole total of 2-under 73-69=142, tied for 30th place.

Miguel Angel Carballo is the clubhouse leader in the opening round of the Club Colombia Championship following a 7-under-par 31-33=64.

Carballo began his lap around Bogota Country Club on the back nine, circling five birdies and tacking on four pars. Turning his attention to the back, he bagged three more birdies and dropped his only bogey of the day at the par-3 fifth hole. Play was suspended in the afternoon due to lightening. That meant over half the field didn't complete their opening rounds and 21 players didn't even log a hole. This event has sloshed through rain and bad weather throughout its history, with two of the six editions not making it the scheduled 72 holes, so playing catch up here is nothing new.

Miguel Angel Carballo began his third season on TOUR at 37th in the Tour grad priority rankings and moved to 25th after the first reshuffle with 35 FedExCup points.

The 36-year-old made four starts before the holiday break cashing a T32 at the, missing two cuts, and a WD after 34 holes of the weather-plagued Sanderson Farms, where he was going to miss the cut anyway at 3-over-par. His stats thus far reflect his results ranking 125th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, 160th in strokes gained: putting, and 184th in scoring average (72.506). Carballo's career best on TOUR (40 starts) is a T17 at the opposite-event Barracuda Championship in 2013-14 (Modified Stableford), and a T18 in stroke-play that same season at the Travelers.

Miguel Angel Carballo withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship after play was called for the day.

The Argentine was 1-under-par with two holes to play in his second round, but 3-over through 34 holes. He wasn't going to make the cut. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 42 PGA TOUR starts. If there's any good news to not cutting a paycheck, it's that he gets a head start on those committed to next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Carballo is 0-for-2 and has yet to break par at El Camaleón.

Miguel Angel Carballo preps for his third season on the PGA TOUR and slots 37th in the priority rankings.

Carballo is now a three-time Tour grad (2011, 2013, 2015) and subsequently will be marking his third season on the PGA TOUR. Between the 2012 and 2013-14 TOUR seasons, he played in 40 career events and made just 18 cuts, four for top 25s with no top 10s. In his seventh full season on the junior circuit, the 36-year-old finished 16th on the money list in 2015, cashing 15 times on 24 starts with three top 10s, including a pair of runners-up. All three of those top-10 finishes came prior to June however. In his last 15 starts since, he's missed eight cuts and cracked the top 20 once. The Argentine finished 68th at the 2012 (CordeValle GC) in his only other appearance.
