THIS WEEK: Reno-Tahoe Open, Thursday through Sunday, Montreux Golf and Country Club, Reno, Nev.
WORLD RANKING: 624th.
2013 EARNINGS: $25,687 (229th on the PGA Tour).
LAST TOURNAMENT: It’s shoot-the-moon time for the Capital High grad. After he missed the cut last week at the RBC Canadian Open (2-over 146), Gonzales is so far down the money list, he almost needs a win to keep his PGA Tour card. More realistic is getting inside the top 200 (Heath Slocum occupies that spot at $84,436) to qualify for the PGA Tour’s “Fall Series” for the chance to regain full-time playing privileges. Otherwise, it is a trip back to the Web.com Tour next season.
TEE TIME THURSDAY: 1:28 p.m. (PDT).
