Steve Marino returns for his fifth visit to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, México.
Marino's record at El Camaleón GC is a snapshot of his whole PGA TOUR career. He went solo eighth in the 2007 inaugural and chased with solo second in 2008. Since, he's played the event once, a MC in 2014. Marino made the FedExCup Playoffs five straight between his rookie season in 2007 and 2011, and in addition to the aforementioned, posted three other runner-up finishes. Most notable of these were P2 at the 2009 Crowne Plaza and solo second at the 2011 Arnold Palmer, his last full season on TOUR. His 2009 campaign culminated with a T7 at the TOUR Championship and a career-best 15th in the FEC standings. A left-knee injury sidelined him twice in 2012, relegating him to just six starts, and he hasn't been the same since. But, the 35-year-old did manage 22 starts last season on the Tour with nine top 25s, including two runners-up, good for 17th on the priority rankings. Nov 11 - 8:06 AM

Steve Marino wasted no time in grinding to open the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season with an even-par 38-34=72 in today's first round of the Open.

Well, at least he completed the round. His infamous sore back led to a withdrawal during the opening round of the Tour Championship two weeks ago. Back inside the ropes today, he opened bogey-bogey-par-bogey and added two more bogeys on his inward side, but lassoed five birdies on his last 10 to draw even. Marino went just 2-for-7 in scrambling en route to the squares, but he averted another at the par-3 11th hole where he scrambled for par with a conversion from 35'9".

Steve Marino is slated to compete in next week's Open.

He walked off Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass during the opening round of the Tour Championship with a sore back, so there's some question as to how strong he'll be in his full-time return to the PGA TOUR. The 35-year-old opens at 15th in the reshuffle, so he was able to afford the mid-tournament WD in Florida, but injuries have precluded a yeoman's run at the FedExCup Playoffs since he finished 49th in points in 2011. Worst case, he's an automatic get in full-season games. Marino is winless in 173 TOUR starts but he's logged four runner-up finishes.

Steve Marino withdrew during his opening round of the Tour Championship, citing a back injury.

Marino went off the first tee at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass and arrived at the turn with eight pars and one bogey. He then called it quits. Already exempt on the PGA TOUR next season by virtue of the money list on the 2015 Tour, the 35-year-old will begin the season with a spot well inside the top half of the reshuffle. Through three events of the Finals, he ranked eighth among Tour grads in aggregate earnings. Veteran gamers are chopping at the bit to get back on board what with his propensity to score and play often. While today's reason for ending his Finals is of concern, there's some peace of mind that he made 21 starts on the secondary circuit this year.

Steve Marino has gained entry into this week's U.S. Open as an alternate.

Four vacancies remained after Kevin Kisner and Andy Sullivan qualified last night. Marino was the first alternate at sectional qualifying in Texas on June 8, finishing one stroke outside the bubble that exempt six into the major. He doesn't have status on the PGA TOUR, but the 35-year-old is no stranger to big-time golf. This will mark his fifth appearance in the U.S. Open. He's currently 12th on the Tour money list with five top 20s. He's sure to be cheap across the board, so he's worth a flier in DFS and other formats in which you can capitalize on his value.

Steve Marino posted a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Colombia Championship.

Action at Bogota Country Club was suspended due to inclement weather with the entire afternoon wave of tee times still on the course or yet to tee off. His 8-under 134 is good for the clubhouse lead. The 18-hole leader, Roberto Diaz, is even through one hole and remains at 9-under. This event has a history of weather delays, with last year's event shortened to 54 holes.
Feb 6 - 10:37 PM

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 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.

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.

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.
