This week: The Memorial Tournament, Thursday through Sunday, Muirfield Village Golf Club, Dublin, Ohio
First-round score: The Capital High School graduate shot a 1-over-par 73.
Position: Gonzales is tied for 85th, nine strokes behind co-leaders Hideki Matsuyama and Bo Van Pelt (64).
Recap: Muirfield Village is a course where you can make birdies and bogeys in a hurry, and Gonzales showed that Thursday (five bogeys, four birdies) in his Memorial debut. He got up-and-down from the greenside bunker at No. 15 for his final birdie to get back to even par, but he dropped a shot on the next hole, a par 3, when his tee shot landed in a greenside bunker. He’ll need a better round today to avoid missing the cut for the second consecutive tournament after making four cuts in a row.
Never miss a local story.
Tee time Friday: 4:20 a.m. (PDT) off the 10th tee.
