Carlos Ortiz readies for his tournament debut at this week's Travelers Championship.

The PGA TOUR rookie continues to flash the upside, with seven top 25s in his first 21 starts. More recently he's finished outside the top 50 in six of his last seven starts. With his form trending in the wrong direction, it's easy for gamers to take a wait-and-see approach with this youngster out of Mexico.

Carlos Ortiz spun a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 9-under 207.

Ortiz, a rookie on the PGA TOUR, began the third round T32 and seven shots back of the 36-hole leaders. On his round he hid one bogey with seven birdies finding seven (of 14) fairways and hitting 14 greens in regulation. Ortiz' set ranged from 2'3" to a long of 15'5" on the par-3 second. It also included three, two-putt birdies reaching the par-5 seventh and the par-5 15th in two and also driving the green on the par-4 14th.

Carlos Ortiz jarred a bunker shot at the par-5 18th hole to post 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It was the rookie's final stroke of the round. He sailed his approach into the par 5 into a greenside hazard 19 yards away before holing out for eagle. Time will tell if that serves as a springboard for more terrific play this weekend, but he's navigated TPC Louisiana rather well already. Ortiz has hit 27 greens in regulation and circled 11 birdies to complement the eagle. His longest conventional conversion of the second round measured 13'5" for par at the par-4 12th hole. At 10-under 134, he's two swings back of the 36-hole lead.

Carlos Ortiz signed for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 following his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The rookie is 78th in the FedExCup standings with one top 10 and another five top 25s. It's a welcome season for long-term gamers that can absorb the occasional missed cut. In fact, he failed to cash in his last two tries before today's encouraging rebound. Ortiz hit 12 greens in regulation at TPC Louisiana, which is just below average for this tournament, but he connected for six birdies to hide a lone bogey at the par-3 14th hole. While they didn't count as putts, he rolled in a pair of five-yard birdies from the fringe at Nos. 11 and 16. At last check, he ranked fourth in the field with a strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of 4.040. More importantly, he's only three swings back of the clubhouse lead.

Carlos Ortiz has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

Ortiz started the week as the second alternate. He gained entry when David Toms withdrew. The PGA TOUR rookie is 10-for-14 on the season with six top 25s. That includes a T21 at Bay Hill and a T15 at TPC San Antonio in his last three starts. He'll be making his debut at Harbour Town Golf Links, but that fact should not rule him out as a potential resource.
Apr 14 - 12:26 PM

Carlos Ortiz posted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and is the early clubhouse leader at even-par 216.

Scoring proved to be at a premium at TPC San Antonio on Saturday. That Oritz was able to outpace his two bogeys with four birdies places him in rarified air. The highlight of his round was a 16'3" birdie on the par-4 12th hole. His ball-striking produced just six (of 14) fairways and eight GIR, but he gained over three strokes with the flat stick. He will now sit back and wait to see what happens with the leaders on the course as they try and navigate the back nine.

Carlos Ortiz readies for a relative home game at this week's Valero Texas Open.

The Texas resident isn't too far from home this week as he makes his TPC San Antonio debut. He arrives in good form, ranking 77th in strokes gained:total after 12 starts this season. The University of North Texas product has the distance off the tee as well as the history of playing in Texas to make him a dangerous sleeper at this week's Valero.

Carlos Ortiz conjured up a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open to join Sang-moon Bae in the clubhouse lead at 5-under 208.

Ortiz circled three birdies and an eagle, with three of those four par breakers falling from longer than 10 feet. He suffered a pair of bogeys at Riviera Country Club. The three-time winner on the Tour in 2014 is known to be a solid putter, and he lived up to that reputation on Saturday. He gained over three strokes on the field with his flat stick in the third round. He will try and capture his first PGA TOUR win in Sunday's finale.

Carlos Ortiz shot a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open, finishing one strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The rookie has so far shed the curse of being the reigning Tour money leader, albeit during the regular season in 2014. He's 6-for-8 on the PGA TOUR this season with three top 20s and sits 71st in the FedExCup standings. He tied for 11th just two weeks ago at Torrey Pines. In today's debut at Riviera, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation en route to an eagle and six birdies. His eagle found the cup from the rough 13 yards away at the par-5 first hole -- his 10th of the round -- while his most notable birdies measured 27-and-a-half feet at the par-5 11th and 11'8" at the par-4 second. Ortiz even converted a par attempt from 16'1" at the par-3 fourth.

Carlos Ortiz looks to right the ship at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie got off to a hot start this season with a 4-for-4 Fall Series, but has lost his form over the holiday break. Since the calendar struck 2015, Ortiz has missed two cuts and will now make his course debut at TPC Scottdale. With the course newly renovated, he may not be too far behind the rest of the field when it comes to course knowledge.

Carlos Ortiz is 58th in the FedExCup standings due in large part to a hot flat stick.

While strokes gained: tee-to-green is all the new rage for stat gurus, it is the more established strokes gained: putting metric where the rookie is shining the brightest. He ranks seventh in that statistic and has ridden that strength in his game to four paydays in four starts. His best finish was his most recent, tying for ninth in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He is exempt from the reshuffle due to his three wins on the Tour last season.

Carlos Ortiz responded to the home game at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round and a career-best finish.

Ortiz ends the tournament 11-under 273 and on the bubble for a top 10. His previous best PGA TOUR finish was a T18 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open earlier in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. His round featured three birdies and 15 pars at El Camaleón GC. He split 11 of 14 fairways and landed a modest 11 GIR.

Carlos Ortiz will have the crowd on his side this week as he enters the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

As a native of Guadalajara, Ortiz will feel right at home. Whether the support will benefit or hinder his play is yet to be seen, but the familiarity with the climate, culture, and grasses surely won't hurt. Ortiz took advantage of his Latin America knowledge last season on the Tour, winning in Panama City, Panama as well as León, Mexico. The 23-year old rising star is one gamers should strongly consider this week.

Carlos Ortiz is set for his debut in the CIMB Classic at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country club.

Ortiz has teed it up on the PGA TOUR twice in his rookie season, sharing 57th in the Open and tying for 18th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. His three wins on the Tour last season rendered him exempt from the Tour reshuffle, so he's enjoying the ability to pick and choose his starts. Since this event in Malaysia does not feature a cut, he will cash a check in his third consecutive start.
