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. Mar 30 - 9:30 PM

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.
Feb 9 - 10:24 AM

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.
Jan 20 - 8:33 PM

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 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.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño coasted to a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the RBC Canadian Open finale.

Fernández-Castaño had just one blemish on his Sunday scorecard, as he missed a 4'11" par-saver on the par-3 fifth hole. The Spaniard posted 21 birdies on the week, second most in the field, but his 10 bogeys or worse put him out of contention for the win. His aggregate 11-under 269 secures his first top 10 of the season, and his best finish since last year's T3 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño settled for a 1-under-par 36-33=69 to reach the 54-hole checkpoint at 7-under 203.

The Spaniard birdied four holes on the day, but gave three of them back as he double-boxed the par-4 ninth and squared the par-5 12th hole after an errant tee shot. The first 54 holes have been a wild ride for GFC, circling 16 birdies as well as an eagle, but giving back seven bogeys and two doubles. Fernández-Castaño entered the week ranked 138th in the FedExCup standings, and will do all he can to earn maximum FEC points come Sunday.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño has turned 3-under-par 67s to begin the RBC Canadian Open.

GFC is making his 20th start this season, but he's barely inside the top 140 in both FedExCup points and earnings, further proof that internationals with some cachet abroad can have a rough go at first-time membership on the PGA TOUR. Thus far at Royal Montreal, he's circled an eagle (from the rough 184 yards out at the par-4 first hole in the opening round) and 12 birdies, including seven in the second round. For of today's set ranged 11-15 feet. The Spaniard has also swallowed six bogeys and a double, but he co-led the field in putts per greens in regulation (1.538) when he signed his card today. That's an impressive fact given he also ranked T9 in GIR (26). Fernández-Castaño is four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño makes his 17th start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at The Greenbrier Classic.

This is the Spaniard's first look at The Old White TPC, and he's clearly grinding hard to earn a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. He enters the week 128th in the FedExCup standings and on the wrong side of the Playoff bubble. His best finish of the season was a T24 at The Honda Classic, followed closely by a T26 in the Travelers Championship the last time he teed it up.
