This is Marino's sixth mid-tourney WD in 215 events, first this season in just his third start. He was 4-over thru nine holes, 13-over total when he called it a day.

Playing on a Major Medical Extension, Steve Marino takes his talents to Charlotte, North Carolina, for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Making his way back from injury, Marino is just 1-for-2 on the season so far (MC at RBC Heritage and T68 at Valero Texas Open). His rehab starts on the Tour were much more encouraging, going 5-for-5 with a trio of top 10s. Here at Quail Hollow, Marino is 6-for-8 including a solo 16th in 2010 and a T21 in the 2011 edition. Given his play on the lower circuit, Marino makes for an interesting sleeper but it's likely safer to save him for a weaker-field event. The veteran has eight starts remaining on his MME with 316.938 FedExCup Points needed to fulfill the terms.
May 2 - 11:31 AM

Steve Marino has a lot of ground to make up when he returns to action on the PGA TOUR, playing with a Major Medical that requires 320.063 FedExCup Points in just 10 starts.

Marino finished 120th on the money list during the 2015-16 season to keep his TOUR status. Last year he lasted just 15 starts before injuries shut him down from May onward. He was just 5-for-15 before that, nothing landing inside the top 25. When he returns to action the five-time runner-up will need to post one of those top-heavy finishes to have a chance to fulfill the terms of this medical extension. Marino finished inside the top 75 in the FedExCup race in each of his first five seasons on TOUR but since then he's finished no better than 130th. There is always a chance for a career revival for this 37-year-old, but gamers should tread cautiously before re-investing.

Steve Marino coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 during his opening round at the Valero Texas Open.

Marino entered the week with a 5-for-13 record on the season and an 0-for-2 record at TPC San Antonio with nothing better than 1-over 73 on his resume. He turned the tides on those trends today as he splashed home six putts from the 6-to-10 foot range. Marino hasn't been inside the top 10 after R1 in a tournament since last year's John Deere Classic (T6 after R1, T8 by week's end.) but he's got a chance to land there today. Other than strong putting, Marino also gained 1.749 strokes approaching-the-green today. This round is a bit out of the blue, but he's now in a great position heading into Friday.

World No. 430 Steve Marino prepares for his seventh Shell Houston Open and arrives at 183rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 37-year-old is 6-for-6 at the Golf Club of House but it's patchy. He has two top 20s in 2009 and 2010 (T14), but also four cashes outside the top 60. The Oklahoma native's worst is T72/MDF last year (67-73-78), where he got into the field off a top-10 exemption from a P2 at the Puerto Rico Open, and was ranked No. 237 in OWGR. He's 4-for-10 so far this season with no top 25s and checks in off T37 last week at the PRO, which was the first time in his last nine starts that he's played all four rounds.

Prior to the start of the event, Steve Marino has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic, opening a spot for first alternate Andres Gonzales.

Marino was one of the five golfers last week who failed to return on Saturday morning to finish up their second round. It was assumed to be weather-related at the time, but perhaps there was a bigger issue for Marino. Prior to last week's WD, the 36-year-old had missed the cut in five of his previous six starts. Gamers can avoid Marino until he shows some form.

World No. 386 Steve Marino returns to the Waste Management Phoenix Open after a 7-year absence from the tournament.

The 36-year-old posted a T34 on debut in 2008 and missed the cuts in '09 and '10 and has not been back since. After opening the season with T70 (Shriners) and T28 (OHL Classic), he's missed four straight cuts, including at last week's Farmers (by six) on rounds of 72-78. The Oklahoma native's last top 25 on TOUR was T8 at the 2016 John Deere Classic seven starts ago and has two 25s in his last 23 events (T12, 2016 AT&T Byron Nelson).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Steve Marino spun a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 8-under 134, up 46 places on the live leaderboard to T6 and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

This is the second straight week the 36-year-old has posted 7-under 64 in R2. In his first start of the season last week at the Shriners, he carded 72-64-74-73 en route to T70. This week, the Tequesta, Florida, resident, runner-up here in 2008, opened with a three-birdie two-bogey 70 and overshadowed a lone bogey-4 at the fourth with eight birdies, including four consecutive on holes 5-8. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.533 putts per GIR.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Steve Marino fired a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the two-day second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach 6-under 136, up 77 places on the leaderboard to T27.

The 36-year-old is making his first start in 2016-17 after finishing 130th in FedExCup points last season but 120th on the money list. He was scheduled to go last week at the Sanderson Farms but withdrew prior to the start. The University of Virginia alum (2002) opened his sixth Shriners with a two-birdie three-bogey 72 but rebounded for eight birdies against a lone bogey in R2. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 2.459 SG: Putting. His 64 is his best lap since the same score in R2 of the Byron Nelson back in May.

Steve Marino closed the season ranked 130th in the FedExCup standings after missing the cut at the Wyndham Championship, but retained his PGA TOUR card by finishing 118th on the money list.

Marino posted rounds of 68-73=141 to miss the cut at the Wyndham Championship. He entered the week ranked 129th in the FedExCup race and dropped one spot in a failed attempt to reach the Playoffs. Luckily, a three-pack of top 15s helped him secure enough official money to finish 118th on the list, allowing him to keep his PGA TOUR card for the 2016-17 season. In 197 career starts the 36-year-old has seven podium finishes but still no victory. He will look to change that when he tees it up next season.

Steve Marino settled down to card a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to wrap his fifth appearance on 14-under 270.

The 36-year-old's previous best at TPC Deere Run was T41 on debut in 2008 so this week's effort easily supplants that. He began the final round in a three-way T8 on 12-under and is currently T8 with play still in progress. The Oklahoma native split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.006 strokes off-the-tee. He's the clubhouse leader in the latter with a cumulative 4.764. He ended his round with seven straight pars after back-to-back birdies on Nos. 10 and 11. Marino went out in even-par, exchanging three birdies with three bogeys. This will be his second top 10 of the season in 23 starts, first since P2 at the Puerto Rico Open back in March.

With preferred lies in effect, Steve Marino back-pedaled with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to post 12-under 201, down five spots to T8, six back of 54-hole leader Ryan Moore.

The 36-year-old began the third round in solo third after opening in 66-65, one shy of 36-hole co-leader Moore and Wesley Bryan, whom he was grouped with in the final threesome in Round 3. After squaring one bogey each in the first and second rounds, he swallowed five in R3, slightly outflanking them with six birdies. The University of Virginia alum split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, but posted a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR and lost 1.411 SG: Total. He recorded negative numbers in all strokes gained categories with the exception of 1.446 SG: Off-the-Tee.

Steve Marino vaulted up the John Deere Classic leaderboard with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 during the second round, claiming the title of early clubhouse leader at 11-under 131.

The 36-year-old started the week ranked 138th in the FedExCup standings, needing to make a late-season Playoff push. That's exactly what he's done so far. After an opening 5-under 66, he tacked on seven more birdies in round two, swallowing a lone bogey at the par-4 11th which came as the result of a missed 3'10" putt. That has actually been the story all week, despite the 11-under aggregate, he ranks 93rd in the field in terms of strokes gained putting. Luckily, he offsets that by ranking first in strokes gained tee-to-green (+9.211). Marino has never finished better than T41 in four tries at the John Deere. Perhaps he likes the schedule switch, playing the course in August instead of July.

Steve Marino opened his week at the Travelers Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to vault his name into the early mix.

Making his sixth start at the event, Marino striped 13 (of 14) fairways en route to 14 greens in regulation. It was this great ball-striking off the tee that setup a stress-free opening round. Giving himself plenty of scoring chances, Marino made them count four times, including 26'8" and 47'11" birdie bombs at the par-4 fourth and par-4 17th holes, respectively. His lone blemish came at the par-4 10th hole when he whiffed on a 3'11" par-saving attempt. Marino finished T13 here in his 2007 debut but hasn't found a top 50 in four return visits.

Steve Marino manhandled Montrêux Golf and Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Barracuda Championship, giving him 12 points in the Modified Stableford scoring system.

Marino is making his third appearance at the event, posting nothing better than a T76 (2007). Despite the lack of success here, the University of Virginia alum buckled down to circle seven birdies and gave back just two bogeys along the way. His putter was critical in the equation as he walked off the course gaining 2.66 strokes putting. Most notable was a 15'6" birdie splash at the par-4 12th hole. Marino entered the week 133rd in the FedExCup standings and could really use a big week here in Reno.
