Miguel Angel Carballo battled for a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the windy Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship.
Carballo shares the 54-hole lead with Luke List and Andrew Landry at 8-under 208. His lap around TPC Cartagena was a wild one, featuring six birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey. With wind expected to remain a part of the story throughout the final round, he will need to grind his way through every hole if he hopes to emerge with the victory. Mar 8 - 10:57 AM

Miguel Angel Carballo wrapped up his second round of the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship on Saturday morning, signing for a 3-under-par 35-34=69.

That places Carballo in the 36-hole lead by two strokes at 9-under 135. His lap around TPC Cartagena featured five birdies and two bogeys, with the rest pars. The second round was suspended on Friday afternoon due to high winds, so it could be said that the late-early draw received the advantage of having a Saturday morning finish in much calmer conditions.

Miguel Angel Carballo will have his first look at Royal Montreal Golf Club’s Blue Course at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Carballo hasn't been able to build any momentum from the three-eagle Sunday at the Travelers Championship, missing cuts in both events since his round of 63. Sitting in 191st in the FedExCup standings, time is running out for the Argentine to make his playoff push. His lone appearance at the Canadian Open came in 2012 where he produced a T42 finish.

Miguel Angel Carballo ransacked TPC River Highlands to the tune of 7-under-par 33-30=63, good enough for 9-under 271 and possession of the early clubhouse lead.

Carballo's wrist may be tired from circling so many numbers today. His round included three eagles and three birdies. The first eagle came on the par-5 sixth where he stuck his approach shot to 8'3", rolling in from there. The second was a 20-yard hole out from off the green at the par-5 13th. His final eagle came on the driveable par-4 15th where the Argentine dropped his drive to 14'4" and had no problems knocking it in. He shot bogey-free 66 with zero birdies. This goes in the books as the low round of the day and his career low on the PGA TOUR. Carballo is the second this season to record three eagles in one round. Jim Herman turned the trick at Torrey Pines North in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open. All of Herman's occurred on par 5s.

Miguel Angel Carballo carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Carballo has done virtually nothing in his return to the PGA TOUR this season. He arrived in Memphis just 2-for-8 with no top 45s and 220th in the FedExCup standings. If you needed further proof that today's effort was outside the box, consider that he's never scored lower in an opening round. It's the fourth time in 34 starts that he's come out of the gates with a 68. He went 6-for-8 in scrambling and circled four birdies today, including rolls from 30'2", 15'6" and 13'7" at Nos. 6, 13 and 18, respectively. The Argentine's longest conversion of the day, however, disappeared for par from 40-and-a-half feet at the par-4 12th where he landed his approach in a greenside bunker. Carballo signed his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead and with a strokes gained-putting clip just north of 3.000.

Miguel Angel Carballo is back for his second try at TPC Four Seasons in this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Argentine has earned just 21 FedExCup points in seven starts this season, good for 220th in the standings. The two-time champion is still looking for his first top 10 on the PGA TOUR.

Miguel Angel Carballo authored a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open finishing two strokes off the 18-hole lead.

Carballo is in desperate need of a spark. He's in the bowels of the Tour reshuffle due to only one payday in five starts. His opener at TPC San Antonio was split into two days due to Thursday's fog delay and ultimate suspension for darkness, yet he pieced together five birdies, including a six-yarder from the fringe at the second hole. His longest conversions on the putting surfaces measured 16 feet and 10'11" at the 14th and third holes, respectively. But the Argentine walked off the course with a par save from 19'11" at the par-4 ninth to secure just his second sub-70 of the season.

Miguel Angel Carballo has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Carballo was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following numerous withdrawals today. The Argentine has survived only one of five cuts this season, and that resulted in a T72/MDF at the Sony Open. Perhaps TPC San Antonio will provide the elixir he needs as his T24 at the 2012 VTO remains a career-best finish in 30 starts.

Miguel Angel Carballo spent 2013 on the Tour after failing to retain his PGA TOUR card in his rookie year of 2012, but is back for another shot of glory in 2013-14.

Carballo tied for second at the 2013 News Sentinel Open, and then shared 12th in the Cox Classic to end the Tour regular season inside the top 25, thus securing his 2013-14 card. His first lap around the TOUR saw him survive 13 cuts in 25 starts, but he was unable to finish inside the top 20 in any event. He gained entry into only one PGA TOUR event in the new season to date, missing the cut in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Miguel Angel Carballo begins his 2013-14 campaign at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Argentine was fortunate enough to receive a sponsor exemption into this week's festivities after regaining his TOUR card by way of the 2013 Tour. A poor series of tournaments in the Tour Finals has seriously hindered his ability to get into early tournaments, so it's critical that he make the most of this opportunity. With the first reshuffle coming after this week, even just making the cut would improve his number.

Miguel Carballo posted a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the Price Cutter Charity Championship to share the lead with Hunter Haas and Alex Prugh at 12-under 132.

Carballo circled eight birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Highland Springs Country Club, suffering that lone blemish at the par-3 13th. His round featured 15 GIR for the second consecutive round. He is gunning for his third career Tour title this weekend.

Miguel Carballo spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 on the Palm Course in his second round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic to reach the midpoint in 8-under 136, one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The Argentine rookie entered the season finale ranked 174th on the money list, but he hasn't cracked a top 40 in 15 starts. He was brilliant today, however, going 7-for-7 in scrambling thanks to a tidy 22 putts. He circled seven birdies and matched his career low on the PGA TOUR in the process.

Miguel Carballo could use a big week at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to increase his chances at hanging around for a second season on the PGA TOUR.

The rookie has made 11 of 21 cuts this season, but has failed to crack a top 20. His last PGA TOUR competition was a missed cut at the Wyndham Championship, but he jumped down to play the WNB Golf Classic two weeks ago on the Tour to keep his tools sharp. While he is 71st in driving distance, he has failed to rank inside the top 100 in any other major statistical category which includes a 153rd all-around ranking.

Miguel Angel Carballo withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic with one hole remaining in his second round.

The second round resumed at 8:30 a.m. ET today. Carballo was one of 12 golfers that were suspended due to darkness on Friday night. He was 7-over-par through 35 holes and wouldn't have made the cut anyway.

Miguel Carballo looks to heat up with the weather at The Greenbrier Classic.

The rookie has made a respectable nine (of 15) cuts, but since the calendar has turned to May his performace has cooled off a bit. In his last five starts he's made just two cuts, with a T66 at Colonial the best. If he's to contend at The Old White TPC, he needs to improve on his 163rd in Strokes Gained-Putting clip.
