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.

Carlos Ortiz held on for an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open and claimed his third Tour title of the season.

Ortiz traded three birdies for three bogeys on his final lap around Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge to post 14-under 272. The irons were the key to his success, landing 14 GIR in the finale and ranking third for the week with 57. With this victory, Ortiz will avoid all reshuffles on the PGA TOUR via as a three-time winner and the leader of the final regular season money list. He is the 10th player in Tour history, and first since 2009 when Michael Sim completed the feat, to receive a battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR. Of course, given that the season-ending Wyndham Championship was last week, the promotion is nothing more than an honorary badge for the record books.

Carlos Ortiz settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open and his 14-under 199 leads by two strokes over Adam Hadwin.

Rather than pull away at Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge, Ortiz allowed the field to make a run at him. His six birdies were almost equaled by five bogeys. His 10 (of 13) fairways were the most he has hit all week, and his 14 GIR were second only to 15 GIR in round two, but the putter let him down. He rolled the rock to a 1.929 average. He will try and slam the door on his third Tour win in Sunday's final round.
Aug 23 - 9:31 PM

Carlos Ortiz thrashed Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge for an 8-under-par 29-34=63 in his second round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open on the Tour.

The circuit's money leader started on the back side and promptly circled two eagle-3s and three birdies against one bogey before the turn. He played his inward side in bogey-free 2-under with two birdies to post 13-under 129 at the break, good for a one-stroke advantage over Nicholas Lindheim. Overnight co-leader Matt Fast sits four strokes in Ortiz' rear-view mirror after a 70 today. Kent Bulle, who also shared the 18-hole lead, blew up for a 75 to fade nine swings off the 36-hole pace. Ortiz landed 15 greens in regulation in his second round. The WinCo is the final event of the regular season on the Tour.
Aug 22 - 8:56 PM

Carlos Ortiz arrived at the midpoint of the Memorial in 1-under-par 75-68=143, good for a share of 48th place entering the weekend.

Chalk up his debut on the PGA TOUR as a success. The native of Guadalajara, México, hit only 18 greens in regulation over his first two rounds, but he went 6-for-7 in scrambling today while sinking five birdies to survive the cut with room to spare. His longest conversions measured 11 feet, 10'6" and 27'11" at Nos. 2, 12 and 15, respectively. Ortiz is scheduled to compete in next week's Cleveland Open on the Tour, but a top 10 at Muirfield Village would secure an exemption into the FedEx St. Jude Classic. If he makes another move on Saturday, it'll be a relevant storyline on Sunday as he's the earnings leaders by a wide margin on the developmental circuit, so he could probably afford to accept the exemption. It's jumping ahead a bit, but we might as well project his next goal.
May 30 - 7:25 PM

Carlos Ortiz crafted a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-30=64 in the opening round of the Rex Hospital Open to share the 18-hole lead with Colt Knost.

With two wins already on the 2014 Tour campaign, there is probably a growing faction of players pulling for Ortiz to go ahead and win this week so he can immediately graduate to the PGA TOUR and stop hogging all of the cash on the Tour. After a couple of birdies on the front nine at TPC Wakefield Plantation, he backed up a par on the 10th with four consecutive birdies, then added a final circle at the par-4 17th. He landed 17 GIR, which was the best of the day.
May 22 - 8:42 PM

Carlos Ortiz could muster only an even-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the South Georgia Classic and now leads by only a stroke at 12-under 204.

It was business as usual for the Mexican over the first nine holes, circling two birdies and adding seven pars to his tally. His first blemish of the week would be a big one, as he would double bogey the par-4 10th hole. He then alternated two birdies and two bogeys over his final nine holes. Should he pull out his third Tour victory of 2014 in Sunday's final round, he would be promoted immediately to the PGA TOUR.
May 3 - 8:58 PM

Carlos Ortiz fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the South Georgia Classic to take a three-stroke lead at 12-under 132.

Ortiz has navigated Kinderlou Forest with 12 birdies and 24 pars over his first 36 holes, successfully avoiding any blemishes. His second round featured seven birdies, as he missed just two fairways and two GIR. His 1.571 putting average ranks second for the tournament. Should he convert this 36-hole lead into a third Tour win, he would immediately be promoted onto the PGA TOUR.
May 3 - 12:17 PM

Carols Ortiz spun a blemish-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the opening round of the South Georgia Classic and is an overnight co-leader with Jeff Curl.

While it's very possible that the duo will hold the lead at the end of the first round, a trio of rain delays only allowed for the morning tee times to finish. The good news is everyone was able to get on the course on Thursday, so barring further delays the tournament will conclude on Sunday and feature 72 holes. The bad news is that more rain is expected on Friday. Should Ortiz emerge with the title, it would be his third of the season and he would immediately be promoted to the PGA TOUR.
May 1 - 8:44 PM

Carlos Ortiz finished off his second Tour win of 2014 with a final-round 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the El Bosque Mexico Open.

Ortiz bagged seven birdies to just three bogeys in his final navigation of El Bosque GC, ending the tournament at 13-under 275. He entered this week second on the Tour money list, and has wrestled that spot away from Alex Cejka with this title. Next on his list will be the battlefield promotion straight to the PGA TOUR that comes with three wins in one season. Considering his first win was just two starts ago at the Panama Claro Championship, he's putting off some serious heat.
Apr 13 - 7:19 PM

Carlos Ortiz spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship to take a share of the 54-hole lead at 9-under 207.

Ortiz is less than a month removed from his Tour breakthrough win at the Panama Claro Championship, and has already essentially assured himself of a PGA TOUR card. A native of Mexico, his five birdies and one eagle to just one bogey have him on the cusp of a win on his home turf. Should things remain tight late in his round, he will have the advantage. He's birdied the par-4 17th in each of his first three rounds and owns two birdies and an eagle at the par-5 18th.
Apr 12 - 7:08 PM

Carlos Ortiz spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the Panama Claro Championship to run away with his first Tour title.

It's time to get to know the 22-year-old Mexican, as his third-place finish in Colombia to start the season coupled with this victory means he is almost assured to have a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. Ortiz began the round trailing by a stroke, but his six birdies and 12 pars boosted him to 12-under 268 and placed him four strokes clear of Jason Gore in second place. Ortiz competed collegiality at the University of North Texas, finishing there in 2013 and turning professional a short time later. He tied for 15th at the Tour Q School to earn his status for 2014.
