Biography

Made the rather unusual decision to waive the opportunity of a fast-track pass to The European Tour via Qualifying School for two years in a row, despite the advantage presented by the fact that the six-round marathon takes place over his home course, PGA Catalunya Resort. Wanted instead to prove his worth on the Challenge Tour before making the step up, saying “I only want to move forward”. Justified that career risk when his steady progress on the second tier over three years culminated in graduation by finishing seventh in the 2014 Rankings, following his second career victory at the Najeti Hotels et Golfs Open in June. His first victory came in 2013 at the season-opening Barclays Kenya Open. His rise through the Challenge Tour ranks was made all the more impressive given he often mixed his time with studying for a Masters Law Degree in his native Girona. Started playing golf at four years of age having been inspired by watching Spain’s European Tour stars on TV and cites Seve Ballesteros as his ultimate hero. A huge Barcelona FC fan, he also enjoys watching movies with his girlfriend.
