Biography

Revelled in his debut season on the 2014 Senior Tour, being crowned ‘Rookie of the Year’. Became just the second South American to win the coveted award since it was launched in 1998, after Brazilian Priscillo Diniz in 2000. Highlights of his 2014 year included victory at the English Senior Open at Rockliffe Hall and two second place finishes at the SSE Scottish Senior Open and the French Riviera Masters. Victory in England meant he became the fifth player to win an event on all three of The European, Challenge and Senior Tours after Antonio Garrido, John Bland, Constantino Rocca and Philip Golding also achieved the feat. Secured his maiden European Tour title when he charged through the field to win the 2006 Aa St Omer Open and secure a priceless European Tour exemption. Had won the previous year on the Challenge Tour when he captured the Abierto Telefonica Moviles de Guatemala but finished outside the top 20 in the Rankings and, after also missing out at the Qualifying School, looked destined for another season on the Challenge Tour until his victory in France. In 2003, came agonisingly close to securing a card through the Challenge Tour Rankings but missed out by one place. Instead took the trip to Northern Spain for The European Tour Qualifying School Finals and exacted ‘revenge’ for missing out via the Challenge Tour route by graduating with the 18th card. Was unable to hold his card and returned to the Challenge Tour in 2005.
