Biography

His grandfather, Alfredo Schuler, built a number of golf courses in Chile after emigrating from Germany and it was he who encouraged the young Felipe to take up the game at the age of nine. Golf has been his life ever since and all his family still live on a golf course. Has won more than 30 events in Chile but was forced to change his swing in 2004 when he broke a bone in his back, which took five months to heal. Had an unsuccessful rookie season on The European Tour in 2006 when he failed to keep his card, but bounced back with a sensational season on the 2007 Challenge Tour, winning twice to finish the year in third place in the Rankings. Proved his rehabilitation was complete with his first European Tour victory in February 2008, holding off the challenge of the experienced Jeev Milkha Singh to win the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open. Had to wait six years before winning again when he captured The Championship at Laguna National in 2014. Educated at the University of North Florida where he studied International Business. Elected as a member of The European Tour Tournament Committee in 2012.
