The 38-year-old has yet to make the weekend in Orlando with missed cuts on debut in 2013 and again last year (by four) with rounds of 73-75. He's a two-time winner on TOUR in 114 career events, most recently at the 2016 Sony Open, where he came from four back with 8-under 62 and defeated 54-hole co-leader Brandt Snedeker in sudden death. The Argentine arrives at 143rd in the FedExCup standings with four cashes in nine starts and one top 25, 20th at the 32-man SBS Tournament of Champions.

Fabian Gomez hoisted the trophy at last year's Sony Open in Hawaii and he returns this week for a chance to defend his title at Waialae Country Club.

The Argentine saved his best for last here en route to victory. Through 54 holes last year he found himself at 12-under 198 and five shots off the lead. He rallied on Sunday with a career-low 8-under-par 30-32=62 to post 20-under 260 and meet Brandt Snedeker in a playoff. He survived that playoff to lift his second career PGA TOUR title. With that victory he also played his way back into the SBS Tournament of Champions which allowed him a nice warmup last week, finishing in 20th place by week's end. In his only other attempt at a title defense, Gomez missed the cut at the 2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Fabian Gomez pieced together a 5-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the SBS Tournament of Champions, climbing to 8-under 138 after two days of action.

The Argentine hasn't had his best stuff on the tee box, finding just 21 (of 30) fairways through two rounds, ranking T21 in the field. Luckily, his flat stick has been bailing him out whenever he needs it. Today, he splashed home five putts from 5-to-15 feet, including a 14'2" birdie roll on the par-4 17th. Th 17th is playing as the second toughest hole on the course, so that birdie helped him gain quite a bit over the field. Gomez is gearing up for his title defense at next week's Sony Open, but he's not wasting any time here in Hawaii.
Jan 6 - 9:13 PM

Fabian Gomez returns to Hawaii for this week's SBS Tournament of Champions, getting a second look at The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort.

The Argentine finished T6 here last year in his debut, finding himself T6 or better after all four rounds. He earned his way back the following week, hoisting the trophy at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Perhaps there is something about the fresh island air and fantastic views that brings out the best in Gomez. He doesn't attract a lot of attention most weeks, but gamers should give him a long look this week based on his recent success in the state of Hawaii.

Fabian Gomez crosses the border in preparation of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Argentine is 2-for-2 to kick off the new season, posting a T26 at the Safeway Open and a T57 at last week's Shriners. Now he'll take on El Camaleón Golf Club where is also 2-for-2 with a T50 in his 2011 debut before picking up a T23 in the 2015 edition. With the course checking in right around 7,000 yards this week, Gomez won't have to worry about his lack of distance off the tee (ranked 105th in driving distance last year). The 38-year-old has a knack for keeping it between the pipes and not missing by much when he can't find the fairway. That alone makes him a worthy sleeper in formats like DFS this week.

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.

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.

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.
