Andres Gonzales carded a 2-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the Utah Championship to claim the second Tour title of his career.
Gonzales slept on the lead by himself every night this week, making his feat that much more impressive. While he didn't run away and hide in the final round, circling a modest four birdies and handing back a double bogey at Willow Creek CC, nobody mounted a serious charge to his 21-under 263 tally. With this victory, he moves to seventh on the Tour money list and is essentially assured of a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. He developed a bit of a cult following among fans in his rookie season on the TOUR in 2011, as he would constantly tweet Tiger Woods requesting a practice round to no avail. Both his personality and his game will be fun for gamers to follow next season. Jul 13 - 9:31 PM

Andres Gonzales spun a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Utah Championship to increase his 54-hole lead to four strokes over Aaron Goldberg.

With just two birdies and one bogey on the front nine at Willow Creek CC, Gonzales looked vulnerable to end his day without the lead for the first time all week. He then jumped into attack mode, circling five birdies without a blemish on the back nine. It's been a clean tournament thus far, squaring just two bogeys all week. Should he limit the blemishes in the finale and tack on a few more birdies, he will be hard to catch.

Andres Gonzales tacked on a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Utah Championship to claim the 36-hole lead by two strokes at 13-under 129.

Gonzales eagled the par-5 first hole for the second consecutive round at Willow Creek CC, and added three other birdies to just one bogey on his card. He split eight (of 12) fairways, as he did in round one, but his 13 GIR were two less than on Thursday. Should he emerge with the victory on Sunday, he would virtually lock himself into a spot on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15.

Andres Gonzales lit up Willow Creek Country Club for a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-31=62 in the opening round of the Utah Championship to take a three-stroke lead.

He began his day with an eagle at the par-5 first hole and never looked back. He added seven birdies on the strength of 15 GIR. Somewhat surprising, Gonzales' putting average was a pedestrian 1.667, leaving one to wonder what could have been if the flat stick had really heated up. He entered the week 28th on the Tour money list. Should he win, he would move inside the top 10 and secure his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15.

Andres Gonzales was in the first group off in the third round of the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship, but was only able to complete nine holes due to a third weather delay this week.

Afternoon thunderstorms at Bogota Country Club have wreaked havoc on the schedule, but officials will try and sneak in a 72-hole tournament by nightfall on Sunday. Players will be on the course at 7:00 a.m. ET to conclude the third round, with final-round tee times running from 10:10 a.m. to noon. Players will remain in their third-round pairings for the final round. Gonzales is among the hottest on the course, circling four birdies to just one bogey on the outward nine.

Andres Gonzales blistered CordeValle Golf Club for 10 birdies en route to a course-record-tying, 9-under-par 31-31=62 in his second round of the Open.

There are always great stories on the PGA TOUR, but here's your feel-good of the week. As the first man on the outside looking into the bubble of Tour Finals graduates, Gonzales is headed back to the secondary circuit full-time in 2014, but he's taking at least one parting shot at the big leagues thanks to the top-10 exemption he earned via the Wyndham Championship in August. He hit only 13 greens in regulation today, so talk about capitalizing. Four of his birdies found the cup from outside 13 feet, including conversions from 25'5" and 37'8" at the 18th and eighth holes, respectively. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of 4.600 for the day. He joins Will MacKenzie and Jim Renner (in 2011) and John Mallinger, Nick O'Hern and Jimmy Walker (in 2012) as co-course-record holders. After opening with a forgettable 74, Gonzales is 6-under 136 at the midpoint, five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Andres Gonzales finished inside the top 10 at the Wyndham Championship just prior to the FedExCup Playoffs, and with that secured a tee time in the Open.

Gonzales was the first man on the outside looking in at securing full status on the PGA TOUR via the Finals, so he comes to CordeValle with plenty to prove. With no status for 2013-14, his options for starts are the equivalent to that of Jordan Spieth in 2013. That is, he can parlay a top 10 this week into another start, try his hand a Monday qualifiers or write for possible sponsor exemptions. Most likely, he will drop down and focus on the Tour where he is exempt for 2014.

Andres Gonzales posted a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to notch a top-10 finish at 10-under 270.

While most of the players this week not already locked into a spot in the FedExCup playoffs had that set as the top priority, Gonzales' sights were set a little lower. He entered the 238th in the FedExCup standings, and had to crack the top 200 just to earn a spot on teh Tour playoffs. At the time of his finish, he was projected 198th in the standings, which would just do the trick. Now he sits back and hopes he doesn't get bumped down. The highlight of his round was an eagle from just off the green on the par-5 fifth.

Andres Gonzales posted an even-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to remain at 4-under 206.

Gonzales had all angles covered on the scorecard, checking off an eagle, three birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey during a soggy lap around Sedgefield Country Club. In fact he was one of the players that had to suffer through a 2:59 minute weather delay after teeing off. His highlight came at the par-4 14th, holing out for eagle from 205 yards. Entering the week 238th in the FedExCup standings, his first goal is to move inside the top 200 so he can compete for a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card in the Tour playoffs in two weeks.

Andres Gonzales has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Gonzales was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry due to three withdrawals this afternoon. He's just 2-for-14 on the season and ranks 235th in FedExCup points, worst among 2012 Tour graduates.

Andres Gonzales crafted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to reach the midpoint in 1-under 139.

What's the big deal, you ask? Well, this is Gonzales' first payday in 10 starts this season. He even did it in style, going 8-for-8 in scrambling today. He circled two birdies, including a beaut from 48'1" at the fifth hole, and kept his scorecard blemish-free with a par save from 20'2" at 13. The SJC is the final event of the fourth phase of the graduate reshuffle, so he'll gain ground in the pecking order as long as he doesn't withdraw or get disqualified. Of course, now that we're into the deepest open tournaments of the season, it won't mean as much as a cut made on the West Coast Swing.

Andres Gonzales has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Gonzales started the week as the eighth alternate. He gained entry when Ian Poulter withdrew today. Half-man, Half-amazing is 0-for-7 in his return trip to the PGA TOUR this season. Continue to observe only.

Andres Gonzales has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Gonzales was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry as one of the final four sponsor exemptions. His return trip to the PGA TOUR has been a forgettable one as he failed to cash in all of his first six starts. He missed the cut in his only previous appearance at TPC Louisiana (2011).

Andres Gonzales will make his sixth PGA TOUR start of the season at the Valero Texas Open.

Gonzales’ second stint on TOUR isn’t going any better than his first, failing to secure a paycheck to date. Not going in his favor, he missed the cut at TPC San Antonio in 2011. While he doesn’t have enough rounds to qualify, he would rank well outside the top 100 in GIR, strokes gained-putting and driving accuracy.

Andres Gonzales is back for round two on the PGA TOUR and heads to the Farmers Insurance Open with two missed cuts already under his belt in 2013.

Having graduated from the 2012 Tour, Gonzales should be better equipped for his second pass at the game’s biggest stage. It’s possible he will be distracted this week. Many Twitter fans will realize that he’s spent the better part of the last few years reaching out to Tiger Woods in humorous attempts at a practice round. Gonzales will at least be in the field with the object of his obsession this week. Perhaps his focus would be better served on his own game, as he missed the cut here in 2011.
