2013: Finished the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica ranked No. 2 in the Order of Merit with $98,382 in earnings, only $752 behind Florida’s Ryan Blaum, who moved past him on the very last event of the season… Had kept the Order of Merit top spot since April and seemed impossible to catch after taking a $30,000 lead with his second win of the season in early November. His strong lead slipped away when he missed two cuts and earned just $2,073.75 over the last four events of the season… As the second ranked player among Los Cinco he earned status to compete on the Web.com Tour in 2014… Had two victories, both of them in playoff, one runner-up finish, two third place finishes, six top-10 finishes and 11 cuts made in 13 starts… Won the Roberto De Vicenzo Invitational Copa NEC on April 28 following a sudden death playoff against Timothy O’Neal of the USA and Sebastián Saavedra of Argentina. After posting scores of 71, 66, 66 and 68 to tie with them for first at 17-under par 271, Rodríguez secured the title with a birdie on the second playoff hole. This was his first career win in thirteen starts on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica. The winner’s check for $27,000 helped him claim the top spot in the Order of Merit after only three starts… Collected his second win of the season on November 3rd at the Arturo Calle Colombian Classic presented by Avianca. Posted rounds of 67, 73, 65 and 65 to finish in a two-way tie for first with Manuel Villegas at 14-under par 270. Defeated Villegas with a par on the second playoff hole at the 233-yard par-three hole 9 at the San Andrés Golf Club in Bogota. Trailing the leader by eight shots at the beginning of the final round, he also managed to set a Tour record for the largest comeback to win a tournament. The largest comebacks prior to this were by Clodomiro Carranza at the 2012 Aberto do Brasil and by Ángel Cabrera at the 2013 Abierto OSDE del Centro, who overcame six shot deficits before their playoff wins. His Colombian Classic win also turned him into the second two-time winner this season, behind Florida’s Ryan Blaum who won the Dominican Republic Open and the Aberto do Brasil… Halfway through March claimed runner-up honors at the TransAmerican Power Products CRV Open at Atlas CC in Guadalajara, Mexico. Carded a bogey-free 66 in the final round to lose by one to Manuel Villegas of Colombia… His two third place finishes came at the 66th Arturo Calle Colombian Open presented by Diners Club in Pereira, Colombia and at the Mundo Maya Open in Merida, Mexico in June… In May, making his only Web.com Tour start this year, tied for sixth at the Mexico Championship Presented by Banamex at El Bosque Golf Club in Leon, Guanajuato. That was his third career top 10 on the Web.com Tour… Shot a couple of 72’s to miss the cut by three strokes at the PGA TOUR’s OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, Mexico in November.
