UNLV alum Andres Gonzales fired a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 during Monday qualifying into this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, earning his spot in the field along with Tom Whitney (-9), Ryan Hogue (-8), and Jim Knous (-7).
The 34-year-old with local connections made quick work of Boulder Creek Golf Club today and as a result, he'll play in his eighth Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Despite some ties to the area, he is just 3-for-7 at the event with nothing better than a T49 in the 2015 edition. Of the four qualifiers, Gonzales is the only one with any tournament history at TPC Summerlin. In fact, Tom Whitney will be making his PGA TOUR debut, Ryan Hogue is 0-for-1 on TOUR (MC, 2003 Waste Management Phoenix Open), and Jim Knous is 0-for-1 (MC, 2017 Waste Management Phoenix Open). Gonzales finished 158th in the FedExCup standings last year, and this will be his first chance to bank any FEC Points during the new season. Oct 30 - 5:47 PM

Three-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 339 Andres Gonzales double bogeyed the 72nd hole at the RBC Canadian Open, signing for a 2-under-par 31-39=70 and a four-day total of 16-under 270, down five places to a season-best T10.

The 34-year-old records a second top 25 of the season in 22 starts (T23, SHO) and first top 10, and first top 10 since T4 at the 2016 Barbasol last July. It's also his first top 10 at the RBC in six visits, second top 25 (T22/2015). After opening in 67-69-66, the UNLV alum began T5 on 14-under, three back of 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he mustered six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.429 strokes around-the-green but gaining 1.424 on-the-green. Gonzales circled holes 2 and 9 (from 24'9"), adding a hole-out eagle-2 at 5 from 139 yards away and eagle-3 at 16 from 6'10". He took some luster off with bogeys at 10 and 15 and a walk-off double bogey-7, where he hit his fourth from a greenside bunker over the green and into the water.

Three-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 339 Andres Gonzales tossed up a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 14-under 202, up nine places to T5, three back of 54-hole leader and fellow UNLV alum Charley Hoffman.

Making his 122nd career start, this is just the third time that the Washington State native and resident has been top 5 thru 54 holes. The other two, T4 thru 54 holes at the 2016 Barbasol, finished T4, and T5 at 2015 OHL Classic, finished a career-best T3. On Moving Day in Canada, the 34-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 2.154 SG: Approach-the-Green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7.363. He squared a lone bogey-5 at six, overshadowed by five birdies at holes 5, 7, 15 (from 16'8"), 16 and 18, adding a kick-in eagle-3 at 2 from 20 inches. Gonzales posted 1.643 putts per GIR and -0.512 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts.

Andres Gonzales blitzed Glen Abbey Golf Club during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, styling a 5-under-par 30-37=67, grabbing an early seat near the top of the leaderboard.

The UNLV product came out firing with six birdies in his opening nine holes, trading just one bogey along the way. He would slow his pace after the turn, with the biggest setback coming at the par-4 14th where he found water off the tee, resulting in a double bogey. Gonzales would also miss a 3'10" birdie look at the closing par-5 18th. What makes this round more impressive is the fact he split just three (of 14) fairways before gaining 3.966 strokes on approach. This goes in the books as his lowest round since a closing 66 at the Shell Houston Open (4/2/2017).
Jul 27 - 12:32 PM

With preferred lies in effect, open-qualifier and World No. 294 Andres Gonzales tossed up a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in today's final round of the Shell Houston Open to finish off his third appearance on 5-under 283, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T23, and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Gonzales finished T23 while champion Russell Henley shot the low round with 65.

The 3-time Web.com Tour grad had an up-and-down week with rounds of 75-67-75-66, but it's his best result at the SHO, previously T64 last year (69-73-74-73). He improved to 8-for-12 on the season and should be his best finish, arriving off a best thus far of T32 last week in Puerto Rico. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 33-year-old bogeyed the 10th and 16th, overshadowed by eight birdies at Nos. 13, 14 and 17, and then five straight on holes 4-8.
Apr 2 - 2:02 PM

Andres Gonzales cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the Sanderson Farms Championship, posting a total of 7-under 137 heading into the weekend.

The UNLV grad made things easy today by splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 16 greens in regulation. From there, he rolled in three birdie splashes from 9-to-11 feet while also converting on a pair of shorter looks. Gonzales currently ranks top 25 in all four sub-categories of strokes gained, except for strokes gained around-the-green. As long as he maintains his current pace of 14 GIR per round, that will not become an issue. After finishes of T51 and 60th in two trips to the Country Club of Jackson, Gonzales is trending toward a new best this week.

Andres Gonzales crafted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 7-under 203, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T12.

This is the 33-year-old's first weekend of action at the Travelers in his fourth attempt. His 65 matches a season best, which he shot in R2 of the Barbasol (three weeks ago) en route to T4, his lone top 10 of the season in 25 events. The UNLV alum began R3 on 2-under (T43) after opening in 70-68. He went off No. 10 tee and circled the par-4 12th (14'1") and eagled the drivable par-4 15th from 10'4". After the break, Gonzales connected three straight on Nos. 1-3, the latter from 14'11", adding birdie-4 (36 inches) at the sixth. He squared bogey-5s at the fourth (failed sand save) and the ninth, walking-off with a 3-putt from 41'5".

Andres Gonzales bolted up the leaderboard with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Barbasol Championship, entering the weekend at 9-under 133, eight off the pace set by Jhonattan Vegas but just two back from Hudson Swafford in second place.

Gonzales opened up the week with a quiet bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 on Thursday. Today, he swallowed two bogeys but circled eight birdies to make the round much more memorable. After landing 15 greens in regulation yesterday, he pelted 16 more today. On the week he shares the lead in GIR and ranks first in strokes gained approach-the-green. There must be something about the sight lines at Grand National’s Lake Course because Gonzales entered the week ranked 162nd approaching-the-green. If the UNLV product can maintain this kind of ball-striking over the weekend, he should keep his name near the top.

Andres Gonzales tossed up a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 6-under 278, up 13 spots to T13 with play still in progress.

The 33-year-old came into the week with a lone top 25 in 21 starts and that was a T15 at the weather-shortened 54-hole Zurich Classic. He's in desperate need of FedExCup points, entering 184th in the standings, and is projected to claw to 174th. The UNLV alum began the final frame on 3-under (T26) after opening his second appearance in 69-72-69. He hit all 18 greens in regulation and is currently No. 1 in that stat at 84.72 percent (61/72), and is No. 2 in SG: Approach-to-the-Green with a cumulative 8.363. Unfortunately, he's 77th (of 78) in SG: Putting at -4.702.

Andres Gonzales missed the cut in his 2011 U.S. Open debut and returns for the first time this week, prepping for the 116th U.S. Open Championship.

Gonzales will be making his 93rd career PGA TOUR starts but just the second at a major championship. His cuts-made ratio is on the wrong side of 50/50 as he's 41-for-92 overall. On the season he ranks 190th in strokes gained and has found just one top 25 in 20 starts. Gamers in deeper leagues can consider Gonzales if they need a long shot option, but that's exactly what he is. A long shot.

Andres Gonzales enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-34=67 over the three-day third (and final) round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to conclude his fourth visit on 9-under 207, up 23 on the live leaderboard to T15.

It took three days to get the third round in the books but Gonzales is more than pleased. In three prior appearances, his best and only cash was T70 last year. The 32-year-old entered the week 216th in FedExCup points with just five paydays on 15 starts and a season-best 60th at the Sanderson Farms in November. He began the third frame off No. 10 tee and sat T38 on 4-under after rounds of 69-71. The UNLV alum found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling five the conventional way -- all from inside of 12 feet -- and added a zero-putt version 16 feet from the hole on the par-5 18th. He completed the season-best effort with back-to-back birdies on holes 8 and 9.

The first round of the 78th Waste Management Phoenix Open has been delayed by 45 minutes due to frost. The first tee times are now scheduled for 8:15 a.m. MST. UPDATE: R1 tee times have been pushed back another 15 minutes, now set for 8:30 a.m.

Once the lid-lifter kicks off, Andres Gonzales will hit his first competitive tee shot at TPC Scottsdale off No. 10 tee, grouped with David Hearn and Tony Finau. The 32-year-old is making his tourney debut along with 30 others and enters the week off back-to-back missed cuts. In total, he's 3-for-7 on the season with a best of 60th at the Sanderson Farms back in November. Martin Laird, Charles Howell III and Tyrone Van Aswegen make up the first threesome off No. 1 tee.

Andres Gonzales has made three cuts on the bounce but sits 179th in the FedExCup standings on five starts.

Following the fall portion of the wraparound schedule, the TOUR average in FEC points sits at 103, with Kevin Kisner pacing the curve at 888, and Gonzales bottom-feeding with 11 points. After finishing 115th in the FEC standings last season (28 starts), the 32-year-old opened 2015-16 with two straight missed cuts before cashing in his last three, but nothing better than 60th (Sanderson Farms). Of note, his final-round scoring average is 74.33 thus far with each of his three loops going over par.

Andres Gonzales returns to his old Las Vegas stomping grounds ahead of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The UNLV product will feel right at home this week in Las Vegas. Don't confuse familiarity with reliability as Gonzales is just 3-for-5 here with last year's T49 being his best finish. Things may be different this time around as he arrives fresh off a career-year that yielded three top 10s and earned him his first appearance in the FedExCup Playoffs. Gamers should consider Gonzales as a nice sleeper this week, but nothing more.

Andres Gonzales makes his FedExCup Playoffs debut at The Barclays and enters the week 108th in the FEC standings.

In his third season on the PGA TOUR, Gonzales is one of 18 first-timers to qualify for this year's FEC Playoffs. During the fall portion of the wraparound season, the Web.com Tour grad ranked as high as 21st in the FEC standings after a T3 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November and still 33rd following a T10 at the AT&T Pebble Beach in February. In 15 events post-Pebble Beach however, he missed seven cuts and didn't crack the top 35, dipping to 119th in the rankings. The 32-year-old mustered two top 25s over his last four starts, including a solo fourth at the opposite-field Barracuda Championship to secure his card for 2015-16 and his Playoffs debut.
