Wes Roach has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship following a 7-over-par 39-38=77 in round one. There is no injury cited at the time.
The Duke Blue Devil was playing close to his old stomping grounds, but local knowledge did him no favors today. Roach missed eight (of 14) fairways, losing 3.046 strokes off-the-tee. He converted that into just eight greens in regulation, making it very tough to score, and his putter failed to show up as well, losing 2.362 strokes with the flat stick. The Tour grad entered the week ranked 166th in the FedExCup race so this ends his playoff hopes. He will need to play his way through the Tour Finals if he wants to retain his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season. Aug 18 - 3:01 PM

Wes Roach crafted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of the Barracuda Championship to garner 13 points and reach 25 points total, up 23 places to T3 with play still in progress.

The Tour grad opened his second appearance (T21/2014) with six points in each of his first two rounds to begin the third frame with 12 points (T26), 12 points back of 36-hole leader Greg Chalmers. He waited till the final hole of the day to square a lone bogey, 3-putting the 18th from 15'4" for bogey-6 and losing 1 point. The 27-year-old put in a stellar performance otherwise, circling seven birdies. He dropped six the conventional way, including a long of 28'5" at the par-3 11th, and holed a 42'6" shot from a greenside bunker on the sixth for birdie-3. The Duke alum split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, gaining the most from his round from tee-to-green with a 3.311.

Wes Roach styled a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National for a three-day tally of 6-under 207, up 38 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Aaron Baddeley. UPDATE: With play completed, Ernie Els shot a 65 for the low round of the day.

The 27-year-old was fifth alternate when the field was published last Friday and was the last man in when Ricky Barnes bowed out. He's making his second QLN appearance after a missed cut (by six) in 2014 following rounds of 75-76. The Tour grad began the third round on 1-under (T47) after opening in 72-69. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 4.938 SG: Tee-to-Green though 0.282 in SG: Putting. Roach went out in 33 with four birdies overshadowing a 3-putt bogey (from 20'0") at the par-4 fifth, and came home in blemish-free 2-under 33, adding further birdies at 11 and 16 and an 8'5" one-putt par on the 18th. Four of his five traditional conversions traveled less than six feet with a long of 10'5" dropping at the par-4 fourth, and opened his lap with a pitch-in birdie from 25'11" away at the par-4 first.

Wes Roach twirled a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, placing him two shots off the co-leaders through day one.

Roach missed the cut in his lone start at TPC Southwind (2014) but had different plans this time around. He opted for the long-distance approach, splashing in a pair of putts between 39-and-41 feet. That is a quick way to pick up a chunk of strokes over the field. His putter wasn't perfect, though, as he missed twice from inside five feet, as well. Roach entered the week ranked 177th in the FedExCup race, so a big finish would do wonders for him as he enter the last few months of the season.
Jun 9 - 8:03 PM

Wes Roach signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 after today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to wrap his second appearance on 10-under 270, up 10 to T20 with play still in progress.

The 27-year-old ended with a disappointing bogey-5 after putting his tee shot into the water, but he's still going to notch a season best in his 13th start and deposit his first paycheck at the Nelson. His previous best in 2015-16 was T34 at the CareerBuilder back in January. The Tour grad entered the week with eight missed cuts on the season, including five of his last six, and ranked 189th in the FedExCup standings. His totals for the week show 22 birdies -- which is currently No. 1 in the field -- highlighted by five in a six-hole stretch today. On the flip side, Roach diminished the effort with 10 bogeys and one double.
May 22 - 3:06 PM

Wes Roach tacked on a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 36-hole tally of 10-under 130, one back of co-clubhouse leaders Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth.

Roach began the second frame in a six-way logjam in fourth place after opening his second AT&T (MC/2014) with a career-best 64. His previous mark was 65 at the 2014 Wyndham/R4. The 27-year-old is currently solo fourth after a five-birdie one-bogey effort. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation but did most of his damage with the flat stick, recording 3.194 in SGP at last glance. The Duke alum converted two from between six and 10 feet, and the other three from between 13 and 20 feet. His lone bogey was a failed scramble at the par-4 15th.
May 20 - 3:03 PM

Wes Roach rocketed up the AT&T Byron Nelson leaderboard with an opening round 6-under-par 31-33=64, circling eight birdies along the way.

Roach rattled off birdies in three of his first four holes to kick off the week, starting at the par-4 10th hole. He found trouble on Nos. 12 and 15, dropping a pair of shots before the turn. From there, he cruised home with four birdies and five pars. The most notable was a 15-footer to walk off the course with a birdie at the par-4 ninth hole. The Tour grad is just 4-for-12 on the season but he's off to the races through round one.
May 20 - 9:36 AM

Wes Roach returns to the site of his top-five finish as he preps for this week's Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach.

The Tour graduate is just 3-for-8 to open the season. His best finish was a T34 at the CareerBuilder Challenge. In 31 career PGA TOUR starts he owns just one top-10 finish and it happened to come at this week's venue. That was two years ago as Roach rattled off rounds of 69-66-70-67 to post 16-under 272 and finish T4. Gamers should not expect a repeat of that top five, but a cut made could be in the works.
Mar 23 - 8:53 PM

Wes Roach reaches the end of the fall wraparound portion ranked 161st in the FedExCup race.

The Tour graduate collected three paychecks during the fall while packing his bag early on two occasions. Roach finished the 2015 Tour season ranked sixth on the money list, earning the 25th spot in the priority rankings. He currently sits in 31st after the first reshuffle. The Duke product has five top 25s in 28 career starts, and should be on a list of potential 2016 breakout candidates.

Wes Roach signed for a 5-under-par 34-32=66 following his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Back on the PGA TOUR after an unsuccessful foray in 2013-14, the Duke product missed the cut at Silverado last week, failing to break par in either round. No such disappointment today at TPC Summerlin where he connected on six of 16 looks at breaking par. All of his dropped for birdie, including a 52-footer at the par-3 eighth hole. He also converted from 14'4" at the par-5 13th, the second of four consecutive birdies at the time. Alas, Roach couldn't avoid a bogey-4 at 17 where he found the putting surface with his tee ball but three-jacked from 52'1" He walked off situated two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Wes Roach checks into the Silverado Resort and Spa for his debut in the Open.

Roach teed it up in 23 tourneys of the 25-event Tour season and made just 13 cuts. He wound up a lofty eighth on the regular-season money list however, posting a playoff loss in July (Stonebrae Classic), a T3 at the Chile Classic in March and winning his maiden pro title (in his 54th career Tour start) at the Mexico Championship in April where he co-lead/lead after 36 and 54 holes, respectively. The 26-year-old returns to the big leagues for his second season slotted 25th in the priority rankings. In his previous go around (2013-14), he made 11 cuts, missed 11 cuts and finished 153rd in the FedExCup standings.

Wes Roach rode a rollercoaster to a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the Stonebrae Classic to join a three-way tie for the lead at 10-under 200 through 54 holes.

Roach spread an eagle, three birdies and four bogeys across his scorecard at TPC Stonebrae. The driver has been his calling card, ranking second in driving distance and blasting a tournament-leading 394-yard drive in the third round. With a victory on Sunday, he would likely move from seventh to first in the Tour standings.

With a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship, overnight leader Wes Roach recorded a four-stroke victory over Patton Kizzire and Kevin Tway.

The 26-year-old parlayed his bogey-free 65 in the third round into his first title in 54 starts on the Tour. Roach circled six birdies against two bogeys at El Bosque Golf Club today to post 17-under 271. He suffered only four bogeys all week. Thanks also to a T3 in Chile four weeks ago, the former PGA TOUR member is now second on the money list of the Tour with $166,917. That would have been good enough to finish inside the top 25 before the Tour Finals last season, so as long as he continues to make cuts, Roach should be back in the big leagues this fall.

Wes Roach fired a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship to take a one-stroke lead through 54 holes at 13-under 203.

His two bogeys are the lowest in the field. He entered the week 37th on the Tour money list and would lock up a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card should he emerge victorious in Sunday's finale.
