Wes Roach followed his opening 67 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with another in today's second round, this time going bogey-free.
Despite his electrifying opening nine on Thursday, today's walk was arguably more impressive. He missed only two greens in regulation and circled four birdies, but his longest conversion kept his card clean. After missing the green right at the par-4 seventh, Roach's third landed 11 feet from the hole. From there, he drilled home par save. The non-member was the last of eight golfers to post 8-under 134 and sit two strokes back of the 36-hole co-leaders. In addition to a paycheck, Roach is playing for a berth into next week's McGladrey Classic via a top 10 -- he's currently T5 -- and non-member FedExCup points. This season's targets at 322.760 (to qualify for Special Temporary Membership) and 78.970 (to qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals). He finished 153rd in the standings as a rookie in 2013-14.

Wes Roach carded a 4-under-par 30-37=67 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The former PGA TOUR member survived open qualifying for a spot in the field of 144 at TPC Summerlin, so he went ahead and provided one of the stories of the day. Roach opened with a birdie from 10'8" at the par-4 10th hole. After another birdie at 11, he double-bogeyed the par-4 12th to square his card. No biggie, as he then birdied the six remaining holes on his first nine, concluding with a round-long 21-footer at the par-4 18th. His first par came at the par-4 first and the flame was extinguished as he played the inward side in birdie-free 2-over. That would have been worse if not for a bogey conversion from 10'1" at No. 3 and a par save from 16'10" at 4. Roach signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: putting (3.526 at last check) and sitting three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

In the wake of Thursday's magic show at the Barracuda Championship, Wes Roach answered it with a 3-under-par 33-36=72 worth 10 points.

Roach hit only 11 greens in regulation today, but he figured out another way to make them count. His experience was punctuated with an eagle-3 at the 13th hole, his fourth of the round. He traded four birdies with three bogeys the rest of the way to post 22 points at the midpoint, just four off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Wes Roach smoked-and-mirrored his way to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 worth 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Roach hit only nine greens in regulation, but he buried six birdies to finish six points off the overnight lead. He got away with one today, but he can't count on this kind of wizardry throughout the tournament. The rookie has four top 25s this season with a T4 in the other opposite event in Puerto Rico, but he showed up in Reno slotted 157th in the FedExCup standings and 151st in earnings. That's a direct result of missing 11 of 20 cuts.

Wes Roach enters this week's RBC Canadian Open ranked 151st in the FedExCup standings.

Roach is on the outside looking in currently, but still has time to make his final push for the playoffs. Unfortunately, the PGA TOUR rookie did most of his FEC damage at the beginning of the year, now finishing outside the top 50 in nine of his last 10 events. Securing a playoff spot in his rookie year would be an impressive feat, one that will surely be weighing heavily on Roach's mind as he tees it up this week.

Wes Roach will take his first peek at Congressional Country Club in this week's Quicken Loans National.

The PGA TOUR rookie is entering the week off a T61 at the Travelers Championship, a result that ended three straight missed cuts. Like most rookies, Roach has shown the ability to go low, but also lacks the consistency of most TOUR veterans. In 16 events, he's posted 11 rounds of 74 or worse. When you factor in the difficulty of Congressional's Blue Course, you have to expect one or two more of those this week. There are much safer options for gamers to consider in all formats.

Wes Roach trotted to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and finished two strokes adrift of the overnight lead.

The rookie has made the most of his opportunities this season. Four of his six paydays are top 25s and he's 131st in the FedExCup standings. Not too bad for a guy that never played in a PGA TOUR event until this season. He opened birdie-birdie today, the latter dropping from 13'9" at the par-4 second hole. Roach squared two bogeys against three birdies the rest of the way and signed his card with a strokes gained-putting clip of 2.910. Considering he hit only 10 greens in regulation, he has to be pleased with his positioning entering the second round.

Wes Roach carded a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, improving to 5-under 211.

Roach's round offered plenty of fireworks, circling sixbirdies and squaring three bogeys on his lap around Quail Hollow Club. He was especially successful on the par 3s, with two birdies and two pars on the collection. Represented in that was his longest birdie, a chip in from 22 yards at the difficult sixth. He landed just nine GIR, but a 1.44 putting average allowed him to make the most of it. The only top 10 of his career was a T4 in Puerto Rico earlier this year. He will go for a second on Sunday afternoon.

Wes Roach has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

The PGA TOUR rookie was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Jason Day withdrew today. Roach tied for 16th in his last start at the Valero Texas Open and he logged a career-best T4 in Puerto Rico in early March. The spurt allowed him to rise in the reshuffle and into position to crack this week's field. He's currently 126th in the FedExCup standings.

Wes Roach smoothed a 6-under-par 36-30=66 for his second round of the Valero Texas Open.

He snuck by us coming out of the penultimate threesome off the 10th tee. Roach buried eight birdies, including six on his final eight holes to match Chad Collins' 66 from Friday's early draw. Roach's longest conversions measured 11'5" and 14'7" at the 12th and third holes, respectively. He went 4-for-6 in scrambling and posted 3-under 141, good for the last spot of 15 inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. He's five strokes adrift of Steven Bowditch's overnight lead. Keep an eye on the rookie as two of his previous three paydays went for top 25s, including a T4 in Puerto Rico.

Wes Roach has been added to the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.

Roach was 12th alternate when the field was released on Friday, but a T4 in Puerto Rico clinched his debut at Copperhead via the provision for top-10 exemptions. He closed out the PRO in style, carding a bogey-free, 5-under-par 67 for his first top 20 on the PGA TOUR (in seven starts). As a result, the rookie jumped into a tie for 121st in the FedExCup standings.

Wes Roach spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open to secure a career-best finish at 16-under 272.

Roach picked up five birdies and 13 pars on his afternoon at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Four of those birdies came on par 5s. His previous best finish was a T23 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, meaning his certain top 10 this week will be the best of his career. The irons were a key to his success, landing 58 of 72 GIR.
Mar 9 - 3:58 PM

Wes Roach could only muster a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open, falling into a tie for 10th at 11-under 205.

Roach spend time in a tie for second after a solid opening nine, but faded with two bogeys and a birdie on the inward nine at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. As this is just his seventh PGA TOUR start, perhaps some weekend jitters can be both expected and forgiven. He enters the final round searching for his first PGA TOUR victory.
Mar 8 - 4:23 PM

Wes Roach spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

This was just his 18th round on the PGA TOUR, but it's his lowest aggregate thus far, and that's noteworthy, especially since he reached the halfway point in 9-under 135, one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Roach opened on the back side of Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico and promptly bogeyed the par-3 11th. However, it was clean sailing the rest of the way as he picked off seven birdies, including four straight beginning at No 2. He entered the week with two paydays in six starts and 154th in the FedExCup standings. He's now on his way to a potentially memorable weekend.
Mar 7 - 2:32 PM

Wes Roach will take on the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the first time this week.

The PGA TOUR rookie has made one cut in five attempts this season, and that was back in November at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. In other words, he hasn't cashed a check in 2014. He ranks outside of the top 100 in every major statistical category and hasn't broken 70 since the aforementioned OHL Classic. Invest elsewhere.
