Tour Report: Romero takes early lead in Reno
Interview: Andres Romero

Early clubhouse leader Andres Romero addresses the media to discuss his play and why he finds the Modified Stableford system interesting at the 2012 Reno-Tahoe Open.

Andres Romero racked up 14 points Thursday at Montreux G&CC to take the early lead at the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Under this week’s Modified Stableford scoring system, a par is worth zero points while birdies are worth two points. Romero’s seven birdies and 11 pars add up to his 14-point total, which was the best in Thursday’s morning wave.

Romero is three points clear of Josh Teater and four ahead of Hunter Haas. A strong showing this week could allow the Argentine to secure a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs. Currently 103rd the latest standings, Romero is in position to compete for the FedExCup for the third-consecutive season.
