Repeated his Challenge Tour graduation success of 2009 in 2013 when he finished second in the Rankings for the second time in his career, although he could not add to a trophy cabinet which includes two Challenge Tour victories as well as a win at the dual-ranking SAINT-OMER OPEN presented by Neuflize OBC in 2004. A top ten finish at the lucrative Madeira Islands Open - Portugal - BPI as well as two runner-up finishes - one at the season-ending Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club - were enough to move him ahead of Brooks Koepka in the final 2013 Rankings and earn a seventh full season on The European Tour. Qualified to play on the 2004 Challenge Tour through the Alps Tour the previous season, and made the most of his opportunity by winning the Challenge de España. French by birth before adopting his parents' Portuguese nationality, he grew up playing golf at Saint-Nom-La-Bretèche, where his father worked. Represented France at every level, and during the winter of 2000 he teamed up with coach Benoit Willemart, a partnership which resulted in him becoming the top-ranked French amateur at the end of 2001. Made solid progress since hitting the big time before his blip in 2008, moving to a career-best 63rd in the Order of Merit in 2006.
