This week: Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Louisiana, Avondale, Louisiana.
World ranking: The Capital High School graduate is 253rd.
2014-15 earnings: $656,697 (74th on the PGA Tour).
The skinny: Gonzales is coming off a tied-for-60th showing at last week’s RBC Heritage (1-under-par 283), which was his first made cut since mid-March and gave him a career high 10 cuts made out of 14 events this season. The Capital High School graduate posted three rounds of par or better last week, which had not happened in two months — not since he tied for 10th at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (68-70-64-70). His putting is starting to show more signs of life heading into the summer. His putting average of 1.759 strokes per green reached in regulation ranks 69th on the PGA Tour.
