Exploded onto the European Challenge Tour by winning the second event of the 2007 season, the Abierto Mexicano Corona, worth €37,248. A further four top ten finishes enabled him to finish 11th in the final Rankings. Could not hold on to his card in 2008 but regained it at the Qualifying School at the end of that year and has been a permanent fixture on The European Tour since, never outside the top 100 in The Race to Dubai. Introduced to the game at the age of two when he used to run behind his father with a small stick and a ball. He went on to become Paraguay’s top ranked amateur player for six years before turning professional in 2003.
