A return to form in 2016 earned the Portuguese a return to the European Tour. The birth of his first daughter at the start of the year brought out his best golf as he won the Najeti Open for the second time in his career before going to Rio to represent Portugal as golf returned to the Olympic Games. Sealed a top 16 spot on the Road to Oman with a runner-up finish in the penultimate event of the season, the Ras Al Khaimah 2016 Golf Challenge. Twice previously finished second in the Challenge Tour Rankings, in 2009 and 2013, while his success in France took him to four career Challenge Tour victories. 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.
