Biography

A tie for second place in the Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa early in the 2014 season was the highlight of a solid year. Has made steady progress since graduating from the Challenge Tour in 2011. Made a flying start to his rookie campaign in 2012 by finishing tied second in the Avantha Masters in India. Also bagged a brand new top of the range BMW thanks to a hole-in-one at the BMW Italian Open that year. Played on the American collegiate circuit for four and a half years, as an Indiana University student, with great success. Won the Big Ten “triple crown” in 2008; named the Big Ten Golfer of the Year, Les Bolstad Award (presented to the Big Ten player with the lowest average) and a Big Ten Championship in 2008, and played in the Palmer Cup three times. Won the Spanish Amateur Closed Championship in 2008 and was ranked as Spain’s number one amateur for six separate years. Was fourth going into the final day of the Qualifying School Final in 2010 but shot an 81 in the final round, later saying that it was a blessing in disguise to spend the subsequent season on the Challenge Tour in 2011, gaining valuable experience and finishing ninth in the Rankings. A huge Real Madrid fan, he lists Seve Ballesteros as a childhood hero.
