Player Notes

One of the most exciting talents to emerge from Argentina in recent years, he took the world by storm in the summer of 2007 when, just seven days after coming agonizingly close to winning the greatest prize of all, The Open Championship at Carnoustie, he claimed an impressive victory in the Deutsche Bank Players' Championship of Europe. In two weeks he climbed from 114 to 29 in the World Rankings. No relation to his famous countryman, Eduardo. Took up the game at the age of eight and is coached by his uncle, Miguel Romero. Has won four times in Central and South America and once on the Challenge Tour in Europe at the Morson International Pro-Am Challenge. Was forced to give up his favorite hobby of motorcycling when he turned professional as it was thought to be too dangerous a pastime!
