Gogel was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he attended Bishop Kelley High School. He has lived most of his adult life in Kansas. He attended the University of Kansas, and was a member of the golf team. He turned pro in 1994 and joined the PGA Tour in 2000.

Gogel played in Asia early in his professional career and on the Nike Tour (which later became known as the Nationwide Tour). He is the first player in Nationwide Tour history to win in four consecutive years. He earned his PGA Tour card for 2000 by finishing 7th on the Nationwide Tour money list in 1999.[1] His two best finishes in official PGA Tour events have come at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am; he won the tournament in 2002 and finished T-2 in 2000. His best finish in a major championship is a T-12 at the 2001 U.S. Open.

After losing his tour card in 2006, Gogel announced an intention to retire after the 2007 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.[2]

In June 2007, Gogel joined The Golf Channel as an on-course reporter for its PGA Tour Coverage. His first event was the 2007 Travelers Championship. He joined CBS Sports as a commentator in 2009.[3] Gogel's brother Mike is a golf course designer, and collaborated on a redesign of the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi, which hosts the Sanderson Farms Championship annually.

He currently lives in Mission Hills, Kansas.
