Carlos Ortiz survived a pair of water balls on his way to a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of this week's Travelers Championship.
Ortiz lost 1.542 strokes off the tee, largely due to water balls at the par-5 13th and par-4 15th holes. Luckily, his flat stick bailed him out all day, splashing home five putts from outside eight feet. The 25-year-old walked off the course gaining 3.71 strokes putting. Ortiz entered the week ranked 182nd in the FedExCup standings and 157th in strokes gained putting, so putting performance is certainly a bit out of nowhere. The youngster missed the cut in his Travelers debut last year (72-71=143) but currently finds himself inside the top 10 as the p.m. wave gets underway. Aug 4 - 2:59 PM

Carlos Ortiz fought through weather delays on his way toward 10-under-par 66-66=132, grabbing the top spot at the two-day U.S. Open sectional qualifier held in Powell, Ohio. This was the deepest location of the day as 13 in total qualified here.

Playing at Wedgewood Golf & Country Club as well as Kinsale Golf & Fitness Club, this sectional resembled a mid-level event on the PGA TOUR, in terms of the field strength. Ortiz traded 12 birdies with two bogeys over his two rounds, earning his way to his first career major championship. In behind him were 133--Bryson DeChambeau;Ethan Tracy...134--Brendan Steele...135--Spencer Levin; Wesley Short; Kevin Streelman...136--Jason Kokrak...137--Scottie Scheffler; Luke Donald; Jason Allred; Richard Schembechler II; Patrick Rodgers. Daniel Summerhays also finished at 5-under 137 but was the odd man out of a 6-for-5 playoff, giving him alternate status. Notables that finished one shot out of the playoff were Adam Hadwin, Alex Cejka, Ken Duke, Erik Compton, and Cameron Tringale. Hadwin returned this morning for a 10-for-1 playoff to secure the second alternate spot.

Carlos Ortiz opened his RBC Heritage career with a missed cut in 2015, returning this week for another crack at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Ortiz ranks 155th in the FedExCup ahead of this week, opening the season with a 5-for-13 record. The adjustment period to new clubs appears to be taking longer than expected as he's yet to record a top 25 this year after posting nine of them in his rookie season. Gamers should hold off on rostering Ortiz for the time being, but keep a close eye on the up-and-comer's form as his potential is still there.

Carlos Oriz arrives at PGA National's Champion Course as he turns his attention to this week's Honda Classic.

The youngster out of Mexico enters the week ranked 131st in the FedExCup standings. He's tallied most his points through pure volume of play as he makes his 10th start of the season this week. Ortiz was one of the many pros that made club changes at the beginning of the calendar year, and he's still working out the kinks. Last week's T26 at the Northern Trust is a good sign, but he also finished well at Riviera CC in his 2015 NTO debut. He doesn't have that luxury this week as he signed for 77-72 in his Honda debut, missing the cut by four strokes.

Carlos Ortiz is at Torrey Pines for his second playing of the Farmers Insurance Open.

The second-year man is being characterized as a good sleeper pick this week, having finished T11 in last year's tourney debut (73-70-68-71). However, caution is required for the 24-year-old as he enters off four straight missed cuts, including his last two with his new TaylorMade clubs having switched from PING at the beginning of the calendar year.
Jan 27 - 9:28 AM

Last season's rookie campaign for Carlos Ortiz finished at 93rd in the FedExCup standings with nine top 25s on 20 made cuts in 30 starts, but just one top 10.

The Dallas resident and University of North Texas product is rocking the flat stick thus far in 2015-16 ranking 34th in strokes gained: putting but he's 156th in strokes gained: tee-to-green and 158th in scoring average (72.079). He opened a respectable T32-T47 but has missed the cut in his last two starts, including by five at The RSM Classic on rounds of 71-74.

Carlos Ortiz arrived at the midpoint of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in 1-under-par 68-73=141, missing the cut by one stroke.

El Camaleón Golf Club remains the site of Ortiz' only top 10 in PGA TOUR competition. The native of México tied for ninth last year; this week's return marked his 34th career start. The three-time winner on the 2014 Tour is only 24 years of age, so it's just a matter of time before he finds his comfort zone on the big stage. Other notables who fell short today include: 141--defending champion Charley Hoffman; Pat Perez ... 142--2012 champ John Huh; Brendon Todd ... 143--Harris English; Chris Stroud ... 144--2007 champ Fred Funk ... 146--Brendan Steele; Jhonattan Vegas ... Andrew Loupe.

México native Carlos Ortiz returns for his second consecutive OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, México.

Ortiz finished 93rd in the FedExCup standings last season and was one of six rookies to advance as far as the Deutsche Bank Championship in the Playoffs. His lone top 10 on 30 starts came here at El Camaleón Golf Club on rounds of 67-69-69-68. The 24-year-old opened his sophomore season with a T32 at the Open and chased with T47 two weeks ago at the no-cut CIMB Classic in Malaysia, where he played the weekend in 8-under-par 67-69.

Mexico's Carlos Ortiz is back for his second CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

Ortiz was one of six rookies last season to make it to the Deutsche Bank Championship in round two of the FedExCup Playoffs. He was bounced at 93rd in FEC points after a T65 at TPC Boston which included a final-round 5-over 76. This continued a bothersome trend for the young Mexican, as he managed par-or-better just twice over his last 12 final rounds. In total, Ortiz made 20 cuts on 30 starts with nine top-25 finishes. His lone top 10 was in the motherland, T9 at the OHL Mayakoba Classic nine months ago. The 24-year-old ended his maiden season a lofty 34th in the all-around, but was 113th in scoring average (71.098) and 158th in scrambling. He went T65 in his CIMB debut last season posting rounds of 76-72-75-70, 22 shots back of champion Ryan Moore.

Carlos Ortiz turns his attention to TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts, for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Nine rookies qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs of which six advanced to the DB Championship, including Ortiz. He enters the week ranked 83rd in the FEC standings following a T24-finish at The Barclays that featured a career-best, 8-under 62 in the third round. Justin Thomas (T16, Barclays) leads the rookie pack at No. 30 in FEC points, followed by: Tony Finau (T16) at No. 32, Zac Blair (T4) No. 45, Daniel Berger (MC) No. 54 and Scott Pinckney (T50) No. 76. The T24 at The Barclays was Ortiz's ninth top 25 of the season on 29 starts but just his second over his last 12 events. In total, the 24-year-old has one top 10 in 19 made cuts, a T9 at the OHL Classic back in November. In August of last year, Ortiz became the first player since 2009 to secure a three-win promotion off the Tour and only the 10th to do so since the promotion began in 1997.

PGA TOUR rookie Carlos Ortiz smoothed a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 in today's third round of The Barclays to post 7-under 203, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Ortiz began the day one better than the cut-line at 1-over (T50) and eight shots adrift of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. With the lead pairing still an hour from heading out, Ortiz was putting the wraps on an eight-birdie loop of Plainfield CC, vaulting 49 places on the live leaderboard to tie the top spot. On his round, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed just 12 greens in regulation, but registered 4.880 in strokes gained: putting and 1.417 putts per GIR at the time he signed his card. The 24-year-old's set included six conversions from inside nine feet and was highlighted by a hole-out, birdie-4 from a green-side bunker at the 16th. His 62 is career best in 95 rounds, eclipsing a 65 he shot in the final round of the 2014-15 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Carlos Ortiz opens up his FedExCup Playoffs career at this week's Barclays.

The PGA TOUR rookie enters the week ranked 112th on the FEC leaderboard. Ortiz has limited experience against a field strength of this week's caliber. He's yet to play any major championship and hasn't pegged it up in a WGC event, either. Ortiz has a world of potential, but can be classified in the wild card category this week, given his lack of top-tournament experience.

Carlos Ortiz turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club for this week's Wyndham Championship.

The PGA TOUR rookie arrives in North Carolina ranked 109th in the FedExCup standings. He is currently on the right side of the playoff bubble, but can't get lackadaisical and risk getting passed by. Entering on the heels of four straight cuts made, this week could go along way in terms of momentum heading into the Playoffs. Gamers should not be over-weighted on Ortiz this week, but should definitely keep close tabs on him.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 08:22:00 AM

Carlos Ortiz is 7-under-par 66-69=135 through two rounds of the Barbasol Championship and shares the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After picking off a pair of eagle-3s and three birdies in the opening round, Ortiz traded four birdies with two bogeys today at Grand National's Lake Course. The rookie is 106th in FedExCup points with one top 10 and another six top 25s, but he rolled into the third opposite event of the season having missed four consecutive cuts. His owners are more than pleased by this early turnaround in Alabama.

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.
