Fabian Gomez fired a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round one of the BMW Championship, finding himself three strokes off the early pace set by Roberto Castro.
The Argentine gained a remarkable 10.736 strokes putting last week at TPC Boston, and continued that fantastic putting today. It started early with a 17'4" birdie roll at the par-4 first. He would add birdie splashes from 16'1" and 33'10" as well before the round was over. The 37-year-old walked off the course gaining 1.762 strokes putting on the day. Gomez entered the week just outside the TOUR Championship bubble, ranked 32nd in the FedExCup race, but he could find his way to East Lake if the putter remains this hot all week. Sep 8 - 7:32 PM

Fabian Gomez fashioned a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, reaching 10-under 274 after day four to sit T6 on the live leaderboard.

The Argentine lost strokes off-the-tee as well as approaching-the-green but salvaged his round with the flat stick. On the round he splashed in four putts from outside 10 feet, easily highlighted by a 37'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th hole. He walked off the course gaining 3.186 strokes putting, which would be his third round of the week eclipsing 3+ strokes gained in the putting category. Overall, he's gained 10.726 strokes with the flat stick, ranking first in the entire field. A hot putter has been the guiding factor in this top 10, and is currently projected to jump from 48th to 36th in the FedExCup race.

Fabian Gomez caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 5-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Deutsche Bank Championship, joining Paul Casey with a share of the early lead.

The Argentine landed a less-than-average 11 greens in regulation, but made up for it with great putting. He splashed home six putts from outside eight feet, four of them coming from 14-to-20 feet. He walked off the course gaining 3.94 strokes putting. Gomez is no stranger to a low rounds at TPC Boston as he closed out the 2015 edition with a 7-under 64 to backdoor a T33 finish that week. The 37-year-old entered the week ranked 48th in the FedExCup race. He's safely into next week's BMW Championship but a strong finish could help him crack the field at East Lake for the first time in his career.

Argentina's Fabian Gomez enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games to reach the halfway point on 5-under 137, up 11 places to T6 with play still in progress.

The World No. 79 kicked off his week with a four-birdie three-bogey 70 on 11 (of 13) fairways and just nine greens in regulation. He improved to 14 GIR in R2 (11 fairways again) and carded a lone blemish with double bogey-6 at the 12th (failed scramble). The 37-year-old camouflaged that with six birdies, circling Nos. 1, 6, 10, 14, 17 and 18. His split featured three conversions from greater than 10 feet with a long of 28'1" at the par-4 14th.

World No. 79 Fabian Gomez represents Argentina at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and heads out on Thursday at 8:41 a.m. BRT (7:41 a.m. ET) with Sweden's David Lingmerth and Jose-Filipe Lima of Portugal.

The 37-year-old slotted in at No. 24 in the Olympic Golf Rankings when they were finalized on July 11th, 2016. He's playing his fourth overall season on the PGA TOUR, second consecutive, and is headed to his second straight FedExCup Playoffs, currently 38th in the FEC standings. Already fully exempt thru the 2017-18 season, Gomez has two wins in 102 career events, claiming his second title at the 2016 Sony Open (playoff). Overall, he has three top 10s in 23 starts this season, missing nine cuts and one mid-tourney WD. Gomez has missed his last two cuts (both majors) and posted a T46 at the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone.

Defending champ Fabian Gomez returns to TPC Southwind for this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic and slots in at No. 27 in the FedExCup standings.

In his 70th career TOUR start and third appearance, the Argentine broke through here last year with a four-shot win over journeyman Greg Owen -- each were co-leaders after 54 holes. He entered as the 288th-ranked player in OWGR and arrived off a run of MC-T27-MC. This week, the 37-year-old checks-in at No. 68 in OWGR and his last three starts show: T74 (PLAYERS), WD (DEAN & DELUCA after 73/R1), and a missed cut by nine at the Memorial with rounds of 73-78. Overall, he's 11-for-18 on the season with three top 10s, including a playoff win at the Sony Open, his second title in his 84th career start. Both of his wins are on par-70 layouts and at Waialae CC, he erased a four-shot deficit with a closing 62 and then eliminated Brandt Snedeker with a birdie-4 on the second hole of sudden death.

One (of 61) who were stranded due to darkness in Friday's second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational did not return on Saturday morning to complete their respective rounds.

At press time, Fabian Gomez is the only player who did not return. He was 5-over thru 10 holes and 8-over total. With eight holes remaining and the projected cut at 1-over 141, the 37-year-old chose to call it a day. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 96 career starts and first since the 2013 RBC Heritage. The Argentine ranks 22nd in the FedExCup standings and arrived for his third DDI off a T74 (of 76) at THE PLAYERS. There is no current information indicating his WD was due to injury. Gomez is in the published field at next week's Memorial where he posted a T69/2013 in his only appearance.

Fabian Gomez authored a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 5-under 283, up one on the live leaderboard to T9.

This was Gomez' fourth Wells Fargo and his first cash. He entered the week off a T45 at the Heritage and a missed cut at his first Masters. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his third of the season in 15 starts and first since his playoff win at the Sony Open mid-January. The 37-year-old began the final round in a ten-way logjam on T10 after opening in 75-69-69. He eagled the par-5 seventh (from 30 inches) for a second straight day and added birdie-4 at the 15th from 7'1" before 3-putting the 18th from 53'11" for his lone blemish on the card. Gomez peppered 15 greens in regulation but just the two conversions for a pedestrian 1.933 putts per GIR.

Fabian Gomez crafted a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in today's third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 3-under 213, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T14 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Gomez is T10 and his 69 was tied for third-best lap of the day.

This is Gomez' fourth WFC and the first time he's going to get paid. In six laps prior to this week, his scoring average was 74.17 with one red number, a 70 in R1 on debut in 2011. The Argentine kicked-off with 3-over 75 before rebounding with a six-birdie three-bogey 69 for T45 on even-par 144, one inside the 36-hole cut line. He was blemish-free 4-under thru 17 holes in R3 before suffering a walk-off bogey-5 at 18 on a failed scramble. The 37-year-old, a playoff winner at the Sony Open in January, circled just two birdies on 12 greens in regulation, including a 25'9" roll on the par-4 first, but buoyed his final result with an eagle-3 from 12'4" at the seventh.

Fabian Gomez galloped out to a 3-under-par 36-32=68 during the opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Making his first appearance at Harbour Town Golf Links since a WD in 2013, the Argentine got the putter rolling today. Despite missing half of his fairways and half of his greens, Gomez carded a low round today. Most notable was a 20'6" birdie splash on the par-3 fourth hole. He walked off the 18th green with 3.843 strokes gained:putting, while losing 0.150 strokes:tee-to-green. Gomez is off to a great start, but he'll need to keep the putter hot in order to stay near the top as the week progresses.

Fabian Gomez preps for his second career major championship appearance as he readies for the 80th Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

The Argentine made his major championship debut at last year's PGA Championship. He posted rounds of 79-78 to finish 13-over and nowhere near the cut line. Since that start, he's rattled off an 11-for-15 record, including a win at the 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii. Gomez is showing tremendous improvement for a 37-year-old golfer, but his lack of experience in majors is enough to steer clear this week.

Argentina's Fabian Gomez checks into Bay Hill Club and Lodge for his second Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Gomez won his second TOUR title in his 84th career start at the Sony Open back in January. He erased a four-shot deficit with a career-low final-round 8-under 62, and then defeated 54-hole co-leader Brandt Snedeker in a two-hole playoff. He's missed three cuts since, and cashed a T42 and a 58th in his last start at the WGC-Cadillac (75-72-78-75). The 37-year-old missed the weekend by one in 2013 in his only other API appearance (77-71).

In his 84th career start, Fabian Gomez won his second TOUR title at the Sony Open in Hawaii, firing a career-low final-round 8-under-par 30-32=62 to post 20-under 260, and then winning in a playoff over Brandt Snedeker.

On the first hole of sudden death, the duo matched two-putt pars at the par-5 18th before Gomez won the second playing of the hole with a two-putt birdie as Snedeker's bid to force a third playoff hole slid by on the right. The 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic winner began his final frame on 12-under in solo fifth, four adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Blair and Snedeker. He chased 69-64-65 with 62, matching the low round of the tourney, and posting a new personal best in his 263rd career round (64 three times). The 37-year-old circled 10 birdies in the finale to smother bogeys at 13 and 14, including seven straight on Nos. 6-12 and an improbable 22-footer from short of the green on the final hole of regulation.

Fabian Gomez continued his rock-solid play with a 5-under-par 31-34=65 on day three of the Sony Open in Hawaii to put 12-under 198 on the board, up 12 spots on the live leaderboard to solo fourth.

Kevin Kisner may lead the PGA TOUR in consecutive sub-par rounds with 14, but Gomez leads the TOUR consecutive rounds of par-or-better with 24. The 37-year-old began Moving Day in a nine-way logjam on 7-under (T16) and five back of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker. Playing seven groups ahead of the final threesome, he bogeyed the par-5 second before reeling off four straight birdies on Nos. 4-7, highlighted by a 28-footer at the seventh preceded by a hole-out birdie-3 from a green side bunker at the par-4 sixth. A two-putt birdie at the par-5 ninth and he reached the break on 4-under. The Argentine squared his second (and last) bogey with a three-putt from 33'1" at the par-3 11th before bouncing-back with birdie at the 12th and a 14-footer at the 14th. He dropped an eight-footer for par at 16, but missed a 7'7" birdie at the par-5 last.
Jan 16 - 9:39 PM

With a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, Fabian Gomez ran his par-or-better streak to 23 straight, and extends his lead on the PGA TOUR in that category.

The 37-year-old capped off day two in grand fashion with a winding 32'8" eagle putt on the par-5 ninth, his final hole of the day. Elsewhere, he added birdies at 16 (from 20'9"), 17 (from 13'0"), and three straight on Nos. 1-3 after he made the turn, including another 30-foot plus bomb at the third. Gomez' 7-under 133 saw him jump 52 places on the leaderboard and into a tie for 16th place. He hit half (of 14) fairways but peppered 15 greens in regulation and posted a lofty 3.817 mark in strokes gained: putting.
