Roberto Diaz has been playing golf since he was a little boy. His earliest memory of golf was traveling with his family to the Junior World Championship. He turned pro in 2009 and has been playing in a variety of tournaments since. From the Mexico Championship to the Web.com Tour, Roberto has experienced a lot and gained a lot of confidence on the golf course. He has had the opportunity to train at Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy, located in Barefoot Resort and Golf in North Myrtle Beach, SC and currently is a part of Grupor Sports Management.
Diaz has had many accomplishments throughout his golf career. He set a course record at the Bogota Country Club in Colombia in February 2015. He won the Televisa Players Championship in 2013 and the Mexico Golf Tour in October and December 2015. He is a four-time all American in Division II, a three-time All-Conference Team, two-time player of the week by Golf Week, a two-time team member of the World Golf Amateur and a two-time winner of the Tecate Golf Tour. At the beginning of 2016, he sat number 772 in the world rankings and by February 2017 he was sitting at number 472, due to the most intense tournament he has ever been involved in, the Web.com Tour Club Colombia Championship, where he was T1. In March 2017, he had the opportunity to play in the WGC Mexico, as the highest-ranking player from Mexico in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Over the course of his golf career, and like many other golfers, their dream is to earn their PGA Tour Card which allows them to play in the PGA Tour events. After playing on the Web.com Tour for four years, he recently played in the WinCo Foods Portland Open at the Pumpkin Ridge Witch Hollow Golf Course. He finished 45th, but since he was top on the money list, he anxiously waited for Keith Mitchell to finish his round. If Mitchell had made the birdie on the 72nd hole then he would of secured the 25th PGA Card, but with him missing the final putt, Roberto Diaz secured his PGA Card!
