Biography

Landed the biggest victory of his career at the 2012 Omega Dubai Desert Classic, where he held off Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy, among others, to win with an 18 under par total, helped considerably by a superb 63 in the first round. Was the highlight of an incredibly consistent season in which he missed only one cut in 27 events. For his other European Tour triumph, the progress was made at the other end of the tournament, a stunning final round 60 propelling him to victory in the 2009 Austrian Golf Open. Won the Spanish National Championship every year from Under-seven to Under-18 level after taking the game up at the age of six. Studied business, economics and business law at university, and still has to complete his degree. His studies were interrupted by his rise through the professional golfing ranks as he finished 14th on the 2006 Challenge Tour Rankings following victory at the MAN NÖ Open in Austria. Narrowly missed out on retaining his European Tour playing privileges, but secured an immediate return to the elite level in 2008. Grew up next to a golf course in the Canary Islands, and his sister Emma also competes on the Ladies European Tour.
