  • Gonzalo buries the first stone

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño made the cut at The McGladrey Classic. The Spanish golfer locked in a good round for a 69 on the second day of the tournament held at the Seaside Course in Georgia, securing the first weekend of the PGA Tour season.

  • "El inicio de la temporada ha sido desesperanzador"

    Gonzalo Fernández Castaño volaba este lunes a Shanghai, donde a partir del jueves deberá defender título en el BMW Masters, primer torneo de las Series Finales del circuito europeo. Antes de despegar desde Chicago hacía una sincera valoración del momento en que llega esta cita.

  • "The beginning of the season has been disheartening”

    Gonzalo Fernández Castaño will fly to Shanghai this coming Monday, where, starting on Thursday, he will attempt to defend his title at the BMW Masters, the first tournament of the Final Series of the European tour. Before taking off from Chicago, he had to make a sincere evaluation of where he stands, now that it's come time for this tournament.

  • A par, for starters

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño made his debut today at the Farmers Insurance Open with a par, making the provisional cut of the tournament.

  • A tough day at the office

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño won't be playing this weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. One fateful day on the Torrey Pines South Course left him out of the cut at his first tournament of the PGA.

  • An insufficient improvement

    Gonzalo Fernández Castaño missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open after having turned in a second card for 72 shots. The wind called a ceasefire and let off a bit at the JW Marriott TPC San Antonio, and as a result there were better scores. The Madrid native, in fact, was in a position to make the cut, especially after he landed an incredible eagle on the 18th (he started his round off on the 10th), sinking a putt from a little farther than 10 meters out. 

  • Another step forward

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño ended up with a 70 in the last round of THE PLAYERS Championship. The Spanish golfer left the PGA Tour tournament with a good taste in his mouth, having played three days at a good level, and having fought through a tough Friday afternoon where he showed he was capable ofplaying with the best of the best.

  • Anuncio de Srixon

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño protagoniza el último anuncio de Srixon. Bajo el lema 'Journey to Better', el jugador madrileño da un repaso a su trayectoria, al viaje que lo llevó a Estados Unidos con el objetivo de ser aún más campeón.

  • Asian Heat

    Hi everyone! I'm writing to you from up in the air on my last flight of the week, final destination, Miami. Since I had a stroke of bad luck (no pun intended) and my seat is broken and won't recline, I've decided that since I'm not going to be able to sleep, I'll kill some time by writing my third blog entry.

  • Atasco fatal en los greenes

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño no pasó el segundo corte del The McGladrey Classic, regla vigente en el PGA Tour por la que en cada torneo donde tras la segunda jornada pasen más de 78 jugadores se establecerá un nuevo corte el sábado para los 70 primeros y empatados.

  • Biografía

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño nació en Madrid el 13 de octubre de 1980 y no tardó en coger su primer palo de golf. A los tres años, alentado por su padre, gran aficionado a este deporte, comenzó a familiarizarse con algo que se convertiría después en parte fundamental de su vida.

  • Birdies for a cause at the Spanish Open

  • Clear-minded and ready to go

    Gonzalo, Francesco Molinari and Jeff Paul, Fernández-Castaño's caddie.

    Hi everyone! Vacation is over, time to get back to the grind. The first stop of a three-week streak of tournaments is the Humana Challenge in Palm Springs, California. And it's incredible how fast the good part comes to an end. 

  • Como un niño en Navidad

    ¡Hola a todos!

    Permitidme que esta vez comience mi blog al revés, así que primero os contaré cómo fue esta última semana en Hilton Head, uno de los torneos regulares del PGA Tour que más me apetecía jugar este año.

  • Corte de garra en el THE PLAYERS

    La segunda vuelta de Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño empieza y acaba en el putter. Cierto es que no anduvo tan fino como el jueves de tee a green, pero se las arregló para mantenerse a flote hasta que dos tripateos en el tramo final de la vuelta lo pusieron contra las cuerdas.

  • Dave Stockton joins the team

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño has decided to recruit a new coach into his usual work team: the North American corroborated guru of putt, Dave Stockton.

    Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño ha decidido incorporar a un nuevo entrenador a su equipo habitual de trabajo. Se trata del contrastado gurú de putt norteamericano, Dave Stockton.

  • Día de pico y pala en Bay Hill

  • Dos campazos y un driver

    ¡Hola a todos! Primeras dos semanas del Florida Swing y toca hacer balance.

    El Honda Classic fue la primera parada del PGA Tour en el “Estado Soleado” (como llaman aquí a la Florida), mi nuevo estado según atestigua mi licencia de conducir, equivalente aquí al DNI.
