Ricardo Gonzalez

One of six Argentine golfers to have won on The European Tour, joining an illustrious group that also features Jorge Berendt, Angel Cabrera, Jose Coceres, Vicente Fernandez, and Eduardo Romero.
Gonzalez turned professional in 1986 and has spent much of his career in Europe. He won a place on the European Tour in 1992 through qualifying school after playing on the second Challenge Tour in 1991. Having failed to win sufficient money to retain his tour card, he returned to the Challenge Tour in 1993. He played full-time on the European Tour between 1999 and 2015.
He captured his first European Tour title when he led from start to finish at the 2001 Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre, emulating the feat of Romero 12 months earlier, and added his second when he won the 2003 Telefonica Open de Madrid, holding off a strong chasing pack which included Paul Casey, Padraig Harrington, Nick O'Hern and Marten Olander. Won for the third time - also in Spain - in the 2004 Open de Sevilla.
A former caddie in his native Corrientes in northern Argentina tried his luck in Africa and won the 1998 Tusker Kenya Open in Nairobi on the Challenge Tour after a play-off with local hero Jacob Okello. Secured his place on The European Tour by finishing 5th on the Challenge Tour that year. Represented Argentina in both the 1996 and 1998 World Cup, finishing T-6th with Jorge Berendt in the former and T-3rd with Cabrera in the latter. Aside from his win in Spain, Gonzalez's best performance in 2003 was a tie for second in the 60th Italian Open Telecom Italia, which helped him to 47th on the Volvo Order of Merit. After several down years, Gonzalez qualified for the European Tour through qualifying school in 2016. At age 47, he was the oldest Q school graduate in Tour history.
Gonzalez played in a total of 51 Challenge Tour events with 14 top-ten finishes including a win at the 1998 Tusker Kenya Open.
Gonzalez played in 429 European Tour events making 258 cuts with 43 top-ten finishes. In his 20 year careeer he won euro6,503,107.
