Biography

Caddying at Cordoba from the age of ten fostered his interest before Eduardo Romero recognised his potential, encouraged him to take up the game and gave him financial assistance in his early professional years. Became the first Argentine winner of the U.S. Open Championship when he won his first Major title at Oakmont Country Club in 2007, becoming the second Argentine Major Champion after Roberto de Vicenzo, who won the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool 40 years earlier. Claimed his second Major Championship when, as World Number 69, he became the lowest-ranked player to win the Masters Tournament in 2009, defeating Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell in a play-off at Augusta National. Prior to his U.S. Open triumph, recorded three victories on the European Tour, including the 2005 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club. Nicknamed “El Pato” – the Duck.
