I became the number 1 ranked junior and amateur player of my home country Venezuela by the age of 16. At that age I also became the youngest player to win a professional event in Venezuela, by defeating the number 1 ranked professional player of the country at the time. I was a team member of the Venezuelan National Team 2007-2010 and participated in the World Amateur Team Championship 2010, representing Venezuela. In December of 2010, a couple of months before my 18th birthday, I decided to start my professional career and pursue my dream of playing on the PGA TOUR one day. I had a great and promising professional career start; in my first year I won 4 times, including the National Professional Championship of Venezuela (most historical tournament of the country) where I became the youngest player to win this event. In my second year as a professional I Monday qualified to play in The Honda Classic 2012, event of the PGA TOUR with one of the best fields in golf; specially that year by the participation of Tiger Woods and Rory Mcilroy (I was the youngest player in the field with 19). My professional career was unfortunately very affected due to injuries and lack of financial support to compete. In my relatively “short“ professional career, I achieved 12 professional victories, became 2-time National Professional Champion of Venezuela and competed in more than 10 professional tours, including: PGA TOUR LatinAmerica, Canadian Tour and PGA TOUR.
In 2021, I became a PGTAA Certified Class A Master Teaching Professional. I am currently coaching in South Florida and doing online fittings at Curated to help golfers play their best golf 💯
