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 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.
