Gonzalez turned professional in 1977, and played six full seasons on the European Tour between 1982 and 1987, winning the 1984 St. Mellion Timeshare TPC.

He was also a member of the PGA Tour for two seasons (1980–81), with his best finish on it being fifth at the 1980 Sammy Davis Jr.-Greater Hartford Open.
