UTA men's golf incoming freshman Paul Gonzalez is among the 78-golfer field at the Byron Nelson Junior Championship this week at Lakewood Country Club. Gonzalez will be looking to follow in the footsteps of 3-time tournament champion (oh, and Masters and U.S. Open champion) Jordan Spieth, who won the Byron Nelson Junior from 2008-2010.
Gonzalez, a native of Waxahachie, is enjoying a solid summer on the course. He qualified for the prestigious U.S. Junior Amateur Championship and went 3-0 in match play last week to lead Texas to victory over Mexico in a Texas Mexico Cup at Hyatt Hill Country in San Antonio.
