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.
Jan 15 - 11:53 PM

Fabian Gomez carved out a 2-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to conclude his tourney debut at 17-under 271, good for a three-way T6.

After opening in 68-66-70, Gomez began his final frame in joint fourth. Playing two groups ahead of the final pairing of Brooks Koepka and eventual champ Jordan Spieth, he overshadowed a lone bogey at the par-3 second with birdies at Nos. 6, 9 and 15. On his round, he landed 11 (of 15) fairways ending the week T1 in that category (50/60) for an 83.33% clip. However, after hitting all 36 greens in regulations over his first two rounds, he digressed to 14 in R3 and just 12 in the finale. The 37-year-old finished sixth in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green but 23rd in strokes gained: putting and 27th in putts per GIR. Still, the week was clearly a success for the Argentine, logging his first top 10 since winning his maiden title seven months ago at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
Jan 10 - 11:50 PM

Fabian Gomez signed for a 3-under-par 36-34=70 after today's third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 15-under 204, good for joint fourth.

Playing out of the penultimate pairing with defending champ Patrick Reed, Gomez began Saturday's play in a three-way T2, four adrift of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth. After opening his Kapalua debut in 68-66, with six and seven birdies, respectively, the Argentine circled five on the card on day three, but diminished them with a double bogey-6. His only blemish on the card came at the seventh, where he four-putted from 40'1". The 37-year-old missed his par putt from 4'6" and then the come-backer for bogey from 36 inches. Elsewhere, he landed 13 (of 15) fairways and leads the field in driving accuracy (50/54). On the downside, he put a -3.290 on the board in strokes gained: putting, including a three-putt par from 28'9" at the par-5 fifth and yet another three-putt par from 45'2" at the par-5 15th.
Jan 9 - 8:52 PM

Fabian Gomez twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 12-under 134, good for a three-way tie for second and four swings back of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Gomez chased his opening 68 with today's blemish-free effort and has hit every green in regulation thru 36 holes to lead the field in that category. He's T1 in driving accuracy to boot, finding the short grass 26 (of 30) times. The 37-year-old Kapalua debutante circled seven on the card today, including three straight on Nos. 5-7, and added a walk-off birdie-4 from 37'8" at the last. He'll tee it up in the penultimate pairing on Saturday with 18-hole leader Patrick Reed, who's also on 12-under.
Jan 8 - 11:01 PM

Fabian Gomez got his week started on the right foot, signing for a 5-under-par 33-35=68 during round one of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Argentine surpassed all expectations in his first navigation of Kapalua's Plantation Course. Gomez got the birdie train rolling on the front nine with four straight, starting at the par-3 third. His only blemish was a bogey on the par-4 seventh where he couldn't convert the 4'8" par-saving attempt. With the Hyundai TOC winning score hovering around 20-under most years, Gomez still has a long way to go before the week is over.
Jan 7 - 8:21 PM

Fabian Gomez checks into the Kapalua Resort as one of 14 first-timers at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions and secured the invite with his maiden title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June.

Gomez opened last season with a T8 at the McGladrey and then mustered but one more top-10 finish over his next 25 starts, his breakthrough win in Memphis. The 37-year-old began 2015-16 with a pair of top 20s before T44 at The RSM Classic. In-between, he won the Personal Classic on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica for a third straight year in his native Argentina. Gomez has played in two other no-cut events on TOUR, both in 2015, finishing T67 at the WGC-Bridgestone and T39 at the BMW Championship.

Fabian Gomez rides a hot hand into this week's RSM Classic.

The Argentine has kicked off the 2015-16 season with a pair of top 20s and has yet to post an over-par round. In addition, Gomez finished T8 here last year, so his course history passes the eye test as well. The career trajectory arrow continues to point up for Gomez and gamers can give him a look this week when flipping through the bargain bin.

Fabian Gomez smoothed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Frys.com Open to wrap his second appearance at 10-under 278, currently T17 on the live leaderboard.

Gomez began his final frame at 4-under (T54) after opening in 70-72-70. It's early in the Sunday proceedings, but his seven-birdie against one-bogey effort today has him up 39 places. All seven of his conversions on 13 greens in regulation came from inside 10 feet and netted him a stellar 1.538 putts per GIR. Last season was Gomez' third on the PGA TOUR and in his 70th career start, improbably claimed his first TOUR title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June where he was a 400/1 long shot. He qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time and advanced thru three events, eventually finishing 64th in FEC points. In his nine starts post-FESJC, inclusive of the postseason, Gomez missed five cuts and his four paydays didn't crack the top 30.

Fabian Gomez looks to extend his FedExCup Playoffs debut at this week's BMW Championship entering the tournament slotted 62nd in the FEC standings.

In his third season on the PGA TOUR, Gomez vaulted to 36th in FEC points following his first TOUR title (70th career start) at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June. Following the FESJC, he missed five cuts in his next six starts, cashing only a T67 at the 77-man no-cut WGC-Bridgestone, where he concluded in 12-over-par 292 (75-72-73-72). The 36-year-old arrives at Conway Farms Golf Club on the heels of a T33 two weeks ago at the Deutsche Bank Championship, which featured a bogey-free career-tying low 64 in the final round. Notably, the Web.com Tour grad squared just one bogey over his last 54 holes at TPC Boston, but did swallow two doubles. Gomez posted a 71st-place finish (of 72 players) in the first Playoffs event at The Barclays, finishing in 9-over 289 (71-71-69-78). Other than FEC points and money, he ranks outside the top 100 in just about every statistical category on TOUR, including 174th in the all-around.

Fabian Gomez smoothed a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of his Deutsche Bank Championship debut to conclude at 2-under 282, up 35 places on the live leaderboard.

Gomez began the week 67th in the FedExCup standings and solidified his position in the Playoffs by matching a career low in the finale at TPC Boston. The 36-year-old had shot 64 twice prior in 238 career rounds, most recently in round two of the 2013 Sanderson Farms Championship. On his loop today, Gomez split nine (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, converting on seven, including five from inside four feet. After recording just five birdies thru his first 54 holes, he found his rhythm today, to total 12 birdies on the week, currently T52 in that category. However, he squared just six bogeys, one over his last three rounds to rank 10th in that stat at the time he signed his card. Gomez projects 64th in the FEC standings and will continue his Playoffs debut on September 17th at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms.

Argentina's Fabian Gomez makes his second career start in the Playoffs at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the tournament 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Gomez caught lightning in a bottle as a 400/1 long shot at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June where he parlayed a share of the 54-hole lead into his first career PGA TOUR title (in his 70th start). In 16 starts on the season prior to the FESJC, he had one top-10 finish (T8, The McGladrey Classic). Since his win, he's missed five of six cuts, posted T67 at the 77-man, no-cut WGC-Bridgestone, and finished 71st of 72 players that made the weekend at last week's Barclays. The 36-year-old ranks outside the top 100 in just about every key stat on TOUR, with the exception of driving accuracy, where he ranks 99th.

Argentine Fabian Gomez makes his major championship debut at this week's 97th PGA Championship and is paired the first two rounds with Scotland's Martin Laird and club professional Jeff Olson.

Gomez struck pay dirt with his win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in mid-June. It was his first PGA TOUR title (in his 70th career start) and it came at the age of 36. He has one other top 10 this season (T8, The McGladrey Classic) on 22 starts, good for 55th in the FedExCup standings. The Web.com Tour grad finished 12-over-par (T67) at last week's 77-man WGC-Bridgestone. He's exempt on TOUR thru the 2016-17 season.

Fabian Gomez is in the published field at this week's RBC Canadian Open and slots in at 49th in the FedExCup standings.

Gomez has chased his breakthrough victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (three starts ago) with two consecutive missed cuts at The Greenbrier Classic and the John Deere Classic. In total, he's missed the weekend seven times on 19 starts in 2014-15, and besides the win at the FESJC, he's posted one other top 10, a T8 at the McGladrey Classic back in October. Now fully exempt thru the 2015-16 season, it'll be interesting to see what the 36-year-old does the remainder of the season and into the playoffs. The Web.com Tour grad has two prior starts at the Canadian Open, a T74/2011 and a T16 in 2013 at Glen Abbey Golf Club (par 72) on rounds of 72-68-67-72.
