Steve Marino posted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.
Given his delayed start and eventual conditional status, Marino is out of position in terms of a goal. He'll get to the Web.com Tour Finals, but really never had a realstic crack at the FedExCup Playoffs. But who knows, he may make a run this weekend at Sedgefield. Today, he went 4-for-5 in scrambling with a bogey-4 at the 12th hole, but he sandwiched it with a tap-in eagle at the par-5 fifth and three birdies coming in. The first disappeared from 11 yards away from a lie in front of the green at the par-4 13th. He'd later walk off with a conversion for birdie from 21'11" at the par-4 18th. Marino sits just two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Aug 14 - 5:31 PM

Steve Marino begins his Wyndham Championship ranked 170th in the FedExCup standings.

Marino must finish inside the top 125 of the FEC standings or the PGA TOUR money list at week's end in order to assure himself full status on the 2014-15 TOUR. He was in a similarly desperate situation earlier this season, down to his last start on a Major Medical Extension, at The Greenbrier Classic when he tied for 11th to secure conditional status. If he is unable to crack the top 125 of either list, moving inside the top 150 in the FEC standings would count for conditional status in 2014-15.

With a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his final round of The Greenbrier Classic, Steve Marino finished in a five-way share of 11th place at 8-under 272, good for $137,800.00, just $174.00 more than he needed to secure conditional status for the remainder of the season.

This was the final start on his Major Medical Extension for which he needed no worse than a solo fourth-place finish to retain status. With his secondary objective achieved, Marino will slide to the back of the line in the conditional status category and remain eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs. He's already committed to the John Deere Classic and is sure to wrangle a spot in the Reno-Tahoe Open in four weeks. Spots on merit in the RBC Canadian Open (July 24-27) and Wyndham Championship (Aug. 14-17) should be considered questionable until those fields are published on their preceding Fridays.

Steve Marino is scheduled to compete in this week's Greenbrier Classic.

If he doesn't withdraw, Marino will be making his debut at Greenbrier. It will also be the final start on his Major Medical Extension. To fulfill its terms and retain status, he needs to earn $310,841, which would require no worse than a solo fourth worth $312,000.00. (The purse is $6.5 million.) Short of that, he can secure conditional status (for which he needs $137,626) with a two-way share of 12th place that would pay $143,000.00. If Marino fails at the secondary objective, he'll lose his PGA TOUR status.

Steve Marino failed to parlay his opening, bogey-free, 4-under-par 66 at the Travelers Championship, instead settling at 3-under 277 and in a six-way tie for 51st place.

Marino chased his brilliant Thursday with respective rounds of 72,70 and 69. He banked $14,590.66 to leave a mountain to climb to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension. With just one start remaining, he'll need to earn $310,841 to retain status. He's also $137,626 short of securing conditional status as a secondary goal.

Steve Marino turned in a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

This is Marino's penultimate start on his Major Medical Extension, so it's boon or bust for the PGA TOUR non-winner. He landed 14 greens in regulation at TPC River Highlands today and poured in four birdies, three of which disappearing from outside 14 feet. He also rolled in par saves from 12'5" and 16'2" at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively.

At 2-under-par 69-70-68-71278, Steve Marino shared 28th place at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, earning $40,310.00.

This was a case of failing to avoid the big number as he squared a triple bogey in the opening round and one double in each of the last three. Along with eight bogeys, they neutralized the impact of 19 birdies. And since he ranked fourth in par breakers, he has to be disappointed with the effort. Nevertheless, it's his best result since a T15 at the 2013 Farmers Insurance Open over 16 months ago. Marino must now earn $325,431 in the final two starts of his Major Medical Extension to retain status.

Steve Marino turned in a 1-under-par 32-37=69 for his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Including the SJC, Marino has just three starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $365,741 and retain status, so every stroke matters considerably right now. Playing in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC Southwind today, he hit 11 greens and buried five birdies, the longest measuring just 10'8" at the par-4 first hole. He also incurred a triple-bogey 6 at 11 where he rinsed his tee ball and sent his third into a greenside bunker long, and walked off with a bogey-5 at 18, but Marino signed his card sitting only one stroke adrift of the very early clubhouse lead.
Jun 5 - 12:58 PM

Steve Marino blew up for a 9-over-par 42-37=79 in his final round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to finish alone in 74th place.

Marino placed worst among the golfers that complete 72 holes. He converted four birdies, but stumbled to two bogeys, two doubles and a snowman at the par-4 third hole. After rinsing his tee ball, he knocked his third into a greenside bunker. Then blasted into a different greenside bunker and eventually three-putted from just seven-and-a-half feet. His take-home amounted to $13,386.00. This leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $365,741 and retain status.

At 5-over-par 76-73=149, Steve Marino will miss the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship.

He rattled in five birdies in today's second round, but erased them with six bogeys. Overall, he holed seven birdies against 12 bogeys to drop to 1-for-5 on the season. Marino now has four starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $379,127 and retain status.
May 2 - 1:09 PM

Steve Marino carded a pair of 3-over-par 75s at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and missed the cut by eight strokes.

He converted on only two of 22 opportunities to break par, doing so both times through the par-4 10th hole. Marino also squared six bogeys and a double. He'll head to the Wells Fargo Championship with five starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $379,127 and retain status. He's 6-for-6 at Quail Hollow with two top 25s.

Steve Marino closed out the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 32-36=68 en route to a share of 31st place at even-par 284.

After connecting a trio of 72s, Marino finally found a red number on Easter Sunday. He buried five birdies, all from inside eight feet, to erase two bogeys. It's his best finish since a T15 at last year's Farmers and rewarded him with $34,468.57. He'll head to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with six starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $379,127 and retain status.

Steve Marino settled for a 1-over-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to reach the 54-hole mark at 3-over 216.

What is relevant here isn't so much his score, but that he has made the cut for the first time in the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season. Including this week, he has seven starts to earn $413,596 to retain his Major Medical Status. He will need to go low in Sunday's finale if he is to take any sizable chunk out of that, as he is currently outside the top 50.

In a feature at Golfweek.com, Jim McCabe explained why Steve Marino hadn't competed in 2014 until his first round of the RBC Heritage.

After missing the cut at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba, the final stop before the holiday break, Marino injured his left leg after jumping onto a sandbar from his boat. He fractured the fibula and tore ligaments in his ankle. Note that this is the same leg on which he had surgery in his knee in October of 2011. He also received a stem call injection to aid in the healing process. Only recently was he comfortable in walking 18 holes in competition. "I feel really good," Marino said. "I think I'm ready." Suddenly, his opening 72 at Harbour Town looks a little better.

Steve Marino turned in a 1-over-par 36-36=72 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Today's loop of Harbour Town marks his first live action since he missed the cut in México five months ago. While we could speculate that he's still dealing with an injured left knee, there hasn't been any news to indicate why he's been away. Marino hit only eight greens in regulation today, but still managed four birdies, including conversions from 12'11" and 15'5" at the 16th and fourth holes, respectively. He got to 2-under at one point, but closed with bogeys on three of his last four holes, all as a result of missing the green in regulation after a poor drive. At least check, his strokes gained-putting split sat at 2.712.
