Andres Romero, Argentina

Sponsored by
Argentinean professional golfer Andres Romero has enjoyed a number of victories while competing on both the PGA and European tours, but has never experienced the same success as other world-famous golfers.

His most notable win on the European campaign came at the 2007 Deutsche Bank Players' Championship, just one week after his third-place finish at the Open Championship.

During the tournament, Romero - who is currently 93rd in the official world rankings - battled against adverse weather conditions to card a final round score of two-under-par 70 and finish on 269.

Danish professional Soren Hansen shot a 64 and England's Oliver Wilson recorded a 66 to finish three strokes behind the winner at 272.

Romero led by five strokes by the seventh hole and his aggressive style delighted spectators, as they had also one week earlier.

After the tournament, he commented: "I didn't expect my first win to come this quick, but I played great in the Open last week.

"Coming here I was thinking maybe it could be my time - a lot of things are going on inside."

Born in Tucaman, Argentina, in 1981, Romero won his European Tour card by finishing in 14th place on the Challenge Tour rankings in 2005. He had previously enjoyed a successful season as a rookie, which was highlighted at the Scottish Open with a tie for eighth place at the Open Championship that year.

In 2007, Romero ranked third in the same tournament by recording ten birdies on the final day and finishing behind only Spanish legend Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington.

Just one week later, he managed to achieve his first victory on the European campaign at the Deutsch Bank Players Championship of Europe, which led to a top-ten finish in the Order of Merit for the talented golfer.

He broke into the top 100 of the official world golf rankings in 2006 and reached a new best of 29th following his first European Tour win. The next week, a victory in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational took him into the top 25.

Just last month, Romero hit headlines once again - despite not winning a tournament for many years - after he was criticised for turning the 2012 Open Championship into something of a circus after letting good friend and compatriot Carlos Tevez caddy for him in the final round.
However, the Manchester City player's presence did not help, as Romero's round was the worst of the week except a pair of 83s by 22-year-old amateur player Manuel Trappel.
