This week: Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Thursday through Sunday, Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, Texas.
First-round score: The Capital High School graduate shot a 2-under-par 68.
Positions: Tied for 25th, four strokes behind co-leaders Ryo Ishikawa, Kevin Na, Jordan Spieth and Boo Weekley (64).
Recap: Much of the good scoring came in the afternoon wave, and Gonzales was part of that. His short game was spot-on (26 putts, a string of up-and-downs for par on final nine holes). Gonzales finished his day by hitting a 9-iron approach shot just past the 18th hole and sinking a 6-foot putt for birdie. A solid round today would extend his streak of cuts made to four and would give him 13 cuts made in 17 events this season.
Tee time Friday: 6:06 a.m. (PDT) off the first tee.
