It would have been Franco's first PGA TOUR start since turning 50 in May. He's hung up a pair of T64s on the Champions Tour since, but hasn't tested his game in the big leagues since missing the cut in Puerto Rico in March. The four-time winner hasn't cashed in a TOUR event since a T42 in the 2010 Sanderson Farms Championship. Famous for his aversion to practice, he may have been golf's Most Interesting Man in the World if the Internet would have caught up with him when he was in his prime 10-15 years ago. NOTE: Olin Browne, Nolan Henke, Frank Lickliter II, Tom Byrum, Jim Carter, Andre Stolz, Craig Barlow, Brad Fritsch, Wes Roach, James Driscoll, Steve Marino, Kevin Tway and D.H. Lee passed on spots as alternates. Mon, Jul 13, 2015 10:49:00 AM

Carlos Franco makes his first start of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Puerto Rico Open this week.

Franco is near the end of his PGA TOUR rope in every way possible. Not only is he playing with only Past Champion status these days, he also turns 50 on May 24th of 2015. He's made two of his four cuts at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, with a T21 in 2008 the best. In two Tour starts in 2015, his only payday was a T69 in the Colombia Championship.

He hasn't completely disappeared, however, as he's 1-for-3 on the Tour this season.

Carlos Franco shot a 2-under-par 36-34=68 in the opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Saddled with Past Champion status, Franco has virtually zero fantasy value, but it's worth noting that he's back in action since withdrawing from the Puerto Rico Open with a foot injury. The Paraguayan is coming off a T10 in the Tour de las Americas event in Argentina on Sunday, so he's warm, which helps explain today's good score. Solid putting saved his round. He hit just nine GIR but needed just 24 swipes with the blade.
