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. Aug 22 - 2:12 PM

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.
Aug 12 - 7:54 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 4:59 PM

Steve Marino tacked on a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 54-hole total of 11-under 199, up nine to T7 with play still in progress.

The Tour grad opened his sixth Nelson with an up-and-down 69 but chased with a bogey-free 64 that featured four straight birdie-3s on holes 9-12. It was his best at TPC Four Seasons in his 22nd lap, previously 66 in 2009/R3. The 36-year-old found just five (of 14) fairways in R3 but managed 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR. He circled six, all from inside of seven feet, including a 5'9" walk-off 3 at the 18th. Marino squared the third and 15th, the former after putting his tee shot into the water, but managed to drop just one stroke with a 9'7" bogey-save.

Steve Marino has withdrawn from the Zurich Classic following a 6-over-par 39-39=78 during the first round. No reason was cited for the WD. UPDATE: Marino returned to action on May 5th at the Wells Fargo Championship and missed the cut by six after rounds of 73-78.

Marino went off in the first group of the day along with Jonas Blixt and Trevor Immelman. They managed to complete their rounds prior to the weather horn sounding but a long delay means that the second round will spill over into Saturday. After scribbling a pair of double bogeys, two birdies, and four bogeys in today's round, Marino did not have the patience to stick around to weather the storm. We will update if any injury news arises, but until then we should consider this a weather-related WD.

Steve Marino manicured a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the first round of the Shell Houston Open.

There was no letdown from Marino after losing to Tony Finau in a playoff last week at the Puerto Rico Open. He continued his strong play with a blemish-free opener at Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course that included just 12 greens in regulation. The flat stick kept him in the mix today, as he rolled in four putts from outside 11 feet today, including a 33'9" birdie splash on the par-4 second hole. Gamers should not expect the putts to keep dropping at that rate, but should watch closely throughout the week to see if this strong play can continue for two straight weeks.
Mar 31 - 2:05 PM

Steve Marino orchestrated a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's final round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 12-under 276, and then lost on the third playing of the par-5 18th in a playoff with Tony Finau.

Marino, like Finau, was making his tourney debut. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, one group ahead of Finau and 54-hole leader Ian Poulter, he was first to post after birdieing the 18th in regulation. The duo matched birdie-4s in the first two tours of the 18th in sudden death, before Finau ousted him with a third straight birdie. The 36-year-old and first-time Tour grad began the finale one adrift after opening in 70-67-69. He found just seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, but posted 1.636 putts per GIR with five birdies. The UVA alum, winless on TOUR in 182 career starts, went 4-for-7 in scrambles with bogeys on holes 3, 8 and 11. He settles for his fifth career runner-up and first top 10 since solo second at the 2011 API and earns an exemption into this week's Shell Houston Open.
Mar 27 - 8:05 PM

Steve Marino molded a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 during the third round of the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach, sliding in at 10-under 206 and just one stroke back entering the finale.

Marino opened the week with rounds of 70 and 67 before this blemish-free navigation. It was one of just three bogey-free rounds on the day (Tony Finau, Rodolfo Cazaubon). He landed 13 greens in regulation, accumulating 40 GIR on the week (T11 in the field). Marino is making his tournament debut but has proven to be a quick study. In 181 career starts, he's landed on the podium six times but still lacks a win. He will have a chance to change that come tomorrow as he starts one stroke off the pace.
Mar 26 - 7:32 PM

Steve Marino twirled a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open for a 36-hole total of 7-under 137, up 30 spots on the live leaderboard to T4, two back of clubhouse leader Rafael Campos.

The first-time Tour grad began the season No. 17 in the priority rankings and has dropped to 26th after the second reshuffle -- the third comes after next week's Shell Houston Open. He entered his PR Open debut 5-for-8 in 2015-16 with a season-best 34th at the AT&T Pebble Beach. The 36-year-old opened with a four-birdie two-bogey 70 and tacked on a six-birdie one-bogey showing on day two. He digressed to nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, but improved from 1.938 putts per GIR in R1 to a stellar 1.545 in R2.
Mar 25 - 1:54 PM

Steve Marino prepares for his fifth AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but first since missing the cut in 2013.

The 35-year-old is three years removed from his last unsuccessful trip to Pebble Beach and five years adrift since he last qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in 2011. He was buoyed to the postseason in 2011 by a career-best solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and three starts prior, he posted a T4 here at the AT&T, his second straight top five chasing solo fourth in 2010. The first-time Tour grad enters the week with three straight cashes (78-T63-T67) and sits 23rd after the first reshuffle (down six places), with the next reshuffle taking place on Feb. 21st.
Feb 10 - 3:28 PM

Steve Marino motioned through the fall with three paydays to arrive at the holiday break ranked 131st in the FedExCup standings.

Battling through many injury-plagued years, Marino is back on the big stage after taking care of business on the Tour. Raw talent has never been an issue as he's yielded 57 top 25s in 178 career PGA TOUR starts. Gamers should keep there eyes peeled early in 2016 and be ready to pounce if Marino shows signs of good health and good form.

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.
