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.
May 8 - 5:31 PM

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.
May 7 - 1:50 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 12:59 PM

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.
Jan 17 - 10:54 PM

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.
