Eduardo Romero

Eduardo Romero (born 17 July 1954) is an Argentine professional golfer.

Romero was born in Córdoba. He turned professional in 1982 at a relatively advanced age. He has played extensively in Latin America on the Tour de las Americas and its predecessor the "South American Tour", but his international profile is mainly based on his success on the more prestigious European Tour and in senior golf in the United States and Europe. He has reached the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Romero first played on the European Tour in 1985 and was a full member from 1988 to 2005. He has been a consistent performer with 8 tournament victories and seven top twenty placings on the Order of Merit. In 2002 he became the third oldest winner on the European Tour (behind Des Smyth and Neil Coles) when he won the Scottish Open just three days before his 48th birthday. 2002 proved to be his most successful year, as he came fifth on the Order of Merit. Romero turned fifty in 2004, and just a few days later he finished in a tie for second at his first senior tournament, the British Senior Open. In 2005 he won his first senior title at the European Seniors Tour's Travis Perkins Senior Masters, and he won the Wentworth Senior Masters in both 2005 and 2006. In 2006, he lost in a playoff against Loren Roberts for the Senior British Open Championship and won a playoff against Lonnie Nielsen for the JELD-WEN Tradition for his first Champions Tour win and major. He was the Champions Tour's 2006 Rookie of the Year. He won the U.S. Senior Open, his second major, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs in 2008.

Romero has won more than eighty tournaments in Latin America. He has represented Argentina in the World Cup and the Alfred Dunhill Cup numerous times, and he participated in the UBS Cup in 2002 and 2003.

Romero has also appeared on The Golf Channel's "Big Break" series.

Romero's nicknamed "El Gato" (The cat).
