Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to reach the three-quarter pole at 7-under 203, four strokes back of the clubhouse leader Jason Bohn.
Fernández-Castaño began the year at No. 104 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has cratered to No. 291 entering his second Greenbrier Classic (T64/2014). The 34-year-old sits 178th in the FedExCup standings, missing 15 cuts on 22 starts, with a season-best T16 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, his only top-25 finish of his 2014-15 campaign. GFC began his third round at 3-under (T50) and six swings off the pace. The Spaniard split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, converting on just three for a -1.357 strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. In fairness, he only missed one scoring chance from inside of 10 feet. His four-birdie set included three the conventional way, with a long of 4'8" at the par-5 12th, and one of the zero-putt variety, holing out from the rough 15'9" right of the target at the fourth, his only circle on his outward half. The 34-year-old sits T16 with play still in progress, up 34 places on the day. Jul 4 - 2:34 PM

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño will have a second look at The Old White TPC during this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The Spaniard opened strong last week with a 2-under 68 before falling just below the cut line by Friday's end. It was his third straight missed cut, his seventh over his last eight. His second season as a PGA TOUR card holder is not going so smoothly as he enters the week ranked 178th on the FedExCup leaderboard. Gamers can look elsewhere when piecing together fantasy rosters this week.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño enters this week's Memorial fresh off a slump-buster at last week's Byron Nelson.

Last week GFC collected his first top 25 since last year's Barclays. He is 2-for-2 at Muirfield Village Golf Club, but he's signed for just one red number in eight rounds. After finishing 82nd in the FedExCup last season, he is behind pace ahead of this week, currently ranking 170th.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño turns his attention to TPC Sawgrass for this week's PLAYERS.

In 2014-15 the Spaniard played in every major, every WGC event, and THE PLAYERS. His best finish among those was a T26 at the Masters. Now he returns to a venue where he is 1-for-2 with a T38 last year. The full-time gig on the PGATOUR isn't working out so well for GFC as he's just 6-for-16 this season and still searching for his first top 25.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño makes first appearance at Shell Houston Open.

Fernández-Castaño has played in three consecutive Masters and if wants that streak to continue he'll need to win this week at the GC of Houston to get in. The 2005 European Tour Rookie of the Year and seven-time winner overseas has not been able to transfer that success to the U.S. Now in his second full season on the PGA TOUR, the 34-year-old Spaniard is just 5-for-13 in 2014-15 with his best finish being a T27 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. He has since missed his last three cuts and enters this week 192nd in the FedExCup standings. Once ranked as high as 27th in the Official World Golf Ranking, his lack of success on the PGA TOUR has seen him fall all the way down to 164th.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño signed for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 following his third round of the Puerto Rico Open to conclude 54 holes in 3-under 213.

The Spaniard is among the throng positioned three strokes off the pace of the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders. He hit 12 greens and converted three birdies today. A pair of bogeys on his inward nine tainted the card, but Fernández-Castaño is set to log his best finish of the season. Of course, as we relayed yesterday, he didn't crack the top 50 in any of his first nine starts.
Mar 7 - 3:16 PM

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño authored a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 2-under 142 at the break.

He's in desperate need of a big week. GFC is 198th in the FedExCup standings and didn't find a top 50 in his first nine starts. Today, he totaled 14 greens in regulation and six birdies to help offset three bogeys. The Spaniard signed his card sitting just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 11:17 AM

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño has pulled out of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

GFC missed the cut in the last two events and he's still chasing his first top 50 of the season, so he's way short of any improvement following his first year on the PGA TOUR when he finished 82nd in the FedExCup. Remain patient if you're on board as he may have more success on the greens on the Florida Swing beginning at the end of the month.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño is locked and loaded for his first attempt at the Humana Challenge.

Fernández-Castaño has made two of his four cuts during the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, but has not managed to crack the top 50. His last start came in the Dunlop Phoenix on the Japan Golf Tour, where he tied for 20th. His adjustment to a full PGA TOUR schedule in 2013-14 turned out to be more of a grind than many people thought, so it is hard to set the bar too high for him this week.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño teed it up on four occasions early in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Things didn't go well for the Spaniard, as he missed two cuts and didn't fare any better than a T51 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He did manage a T20 in the Dunlop Phoenix on the Japan Golf Tour, so perhaps there is a light at the end of his current dark tunnel. He began the 2014 calendar year ranked 36th in the Official World Golf Ranking, but his first full season on the PGA TOUR was partially responsible for his fade to 102nd in the current ranking.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño shared a piece of 49th place at the 2009 OHL Classic at Mayakoba and returns to El Camaleón Golf Club for another shot.

Fernández-Castaño is off to a slow start this PGA TOUR season with a pair of missed cuts in addition to a T86 after missing the 54-hole cut at The McGladrey Classic. GFC finished 108th in driving accuracy last year, which won't benefit his cause this week on a track that demands precision. The Spaniard has been known to crash a leaderboard from time to time, but he's really a longshot heading into this week.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño makes his first appearance in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open this week in Las Vegas.

Fernández-Castaño probably turned into more of a workhorse in 2013-14 than he originally intended, needing 25 starts to ensure a return trip to the PGA TOUR for this season. He's two-for-two in tee times this season, having missed the cut in the Frys.com Open last week. He is one of several recent examples of European Tour stalwarts that have struggled to consistently carry their game to the U.S.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño tied for 15th at The Barclays last week to advance to TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Considering he entered the FedExCup Playoffs in the 119th spot, he needed to do something noteworthy just to advance to this week's tournament. Now 81st, he most repeat the feat and crack the top 70 this week if he is to make it to the BMW Championship. Considering his result at Ridgewood CC was the second-best of his season, the odds are somewhat stacked against him being able to pull another rabbit out of his hat this week.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño conjured up a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of The Barclays and is 6-under 207 with 18 holes to play.

GFC circled four birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Ridgewood CC, with his 14'6" birdie at the par-4 seventh the highlight. He split just six of 14 fairways and found a pedestrian 12 GIR on his round. The putter propped him up, gaining well over two strokes with the flat stick. Entering the week 119th in the FedExCup standings, he needed to do something big to advance to TPC Boston. Should he hold his position, it would be enough.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño makes his first start in The Barclays to kick of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Fernández-Castaño is 119th in the FedExCup standings, so if he is to advance out of the first leg of his first Playoffs he must make a big move at Ridgewood CC. His current form doesn't leave much room for optimism. His last three starts went 62-T58-MC at the WGC-Bridgestone Championship, PGA Championship and Wyndham Championship.
