World rankings: Putnam is 323rd, Stanley is 326th and Gonzales is 936th.
2011 earnings: Stanley has $315,071 (96th on the PGA Tour), Putnam has $135,532 (155th on the PGA Tour) and Gonzales has $15,805 (222nd on the PGA Tour).
Last tournament: Will any of the locals shake this current cuts-missed malaise? All three have gone home early in their past two tournaments, including Putnam and Stanley, who missed the cut at last week’s The Heritage (Putnam at 3-over-par 145; Stanley at 5-over 147). … Gonzales is still enduring the early-season merry-go-round of a rookie far down the reshuffle rankings to get into PGA Tour events. His last outing was at the Valero Texas Open (5-over 149; best score by local) on April 17, and still has yet to play back-to-back weeks.
Tee times Thursday: Gonzales at 6:30 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee, Stanley at 7 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee, and Putnam at 11:30 a.m. PDT off the first tee.
