Earned a breakthrough victory in 2014 with a maiden European Tour title at the BMW International Open in Germany. Was made to work hard for the win, having to hold off the challenges of Rafa Cabrera Bello, Grégory Havret and 2013 Race to Dubai winner Henrik Stenson in a four-man sudden death play-off. Had previously come close to winning on the European Tour on three other occasions, in 2009 at the Open de España, in 2010 at the KLM Open and at the 2012 Irish Open, finishing runner-up every time. Exploded onto the European Challenge Tour by winning the second event of the 2007 season, the Abierto Mexicano Corona. Four further top ten finishes enabled him to finish 11th in the Rankings, so earning graduation to the European Tour. Introduced to the game at the age of two, when he used to run behind his father with a small stick and a ball. Went on to become Paraguay’s top-ranked amateur for six years, before turning professional in 2003.
