A respected professional in Spain for many years, he has been the main driving force and coach behind his son Sergio’s highly successful career. Enjoyed a truly marvellous family occasion at The Ryder Cup in September 2004 when both he and his daughter Mar were at Oakland Hills to witness Sergio play a big part in helping Europe to their record winning margin. Turned 50 at the end of 2000 and attempted the European Senior Tour Qualifying School in both 2001 and 2003 but was unsuccessful. Put that right in 2004 however when he claimed the 18th card which will give him conditional status for the 2005 season. Has played in numerous European Senior Tour events since 2001 with his best finish being a tied 28th in the DGM Barbados Open in 2005.
