Biography

Needed to display considerable resolve towards the end of the 2010 season in order to maintain a 12-year unbroken run on The European Tour. With six events remaining, the four-time Tour champion and one of the game’s longest hitters was 133rd in The Race to Dubai and in danger of losing his card. However, he made the cut in every one of those six tournaments and collected enough money to finish in 115th place, two above the ‘drop zone’. Had less stressful finishes in 2011 and 2012, coming 99th and 82nd respectively while in 2013 he led the field in the opening two rounds of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles before finishing in a tie for second, a result which went a long way in securing a 17th consecutive season on tour for 2014. A former caddie in his native Corrientes in northern Argentina, he decided to try his luck on the Challenge Tour and won the 1998 Tusker Kenya Open in Nairobi after a play-off. Secured his place on The European Tour by finishing fifth on the Challenge Tour that year.
