Personal


  • Earned PGA TOUR card at age 19 in just his eighth TOUR start as a professional. When he turned professional in 2018, forfeited exemptions into the U.S. Open and Open Championship that year.
  • His father gave him plastic clubs at the age of 2 growing up in Santiago, Chile and learned the game while practicing on the range at Club de Polo y Equitacion San Cristobal.
  • Remembers hitting a 40-yard shot with real equipment at age four during a family BBQ at home and striking his grandmother in the leg. She wasn't seriously hurt but he said ‘it was a pretty good shot'.
  • Recruited by coach Steve Bradley, who already had his friend and fellow Chilean Claudio Correa on the roster at the University of South Florida, but did not attend after failing to gain entry due to his TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores.
