In July 2006, Andrés Romero made it into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time. After winning the 2007 Players Championship Of Europe, he reached 29th position – and a top-10 finish in WGC-Bridgestone Invitational took him into the top 25.

Romero earned his European Tour card through a 14th-place finish in the Challenge Tour rankings in 2005. In his first European Tour season, he tied second at the Scottish Open, tied eighth in the Open Championship and finished 35th on the European Order Of Merit.

In 2007, Andrés Romero took third place in the Open Championship, behind Sergio García and Padraig Harrington. With an impressive total of 10 birdies on the last day of play, his performance in the Open Championship looked set to win Romero a first place. However, a double bogey on the 17th hole and another bogey on the final hole meant that he missed his chance at a play-off by one shot.

One week later, Andrés Romero emerged as the winner of the 2007 Deutsche Bank Players Championship of Europe, ahead of runners-up Soren Hansen and Oliver Wilson. This raised Romero’s standing on the European Order Of Merit to fifth position. He ended the European Tour season in seventh position.

As well as winning the 2007 Deutsche Bank Players Championship Of Europe, Andrés Romero won the 2005 Morson International Pro-Am Challenge, on the Challenge Tour. On the Tour de las Americas, he has had four professional wins – including the Cable and Wireless Masters Panama and the Abierto de Medellin (Colombia) in 2003, the Roberto de Vicenzo Classic (Argentina) in 2005 and the Torneo de Maestros Argentina in 2006.
