Hi Everyone. I’m writing on my way to Brazil where I’ll begin a series of five weeks in a row of competition. The first two weeks will be in theWeb.com Tour in Sao Paolo and Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), then back to Europe for the Open de España in Valderrama and then back again to the Web.com where I’ll play in León (Mexico) and Evansville, IN (US). Five weeks ahead of hours filled with airports and planes, but which I am truly excited about.

Hi everyone. I’ve finally finished the last post of the year. The year 2015 is coming to end, which for me has been, without a doubt, the worst season of my professional career. A season which unfortunately did not go well and which I couldn’t wait to finish in order to close the chapter once and for all. I hope that next year, when I write to you, it will be only to tell you good news, because these posts have felt more like a funeral than a blog in the end!

I’ve been at home for two weeks now and the most repeated phrase is: “Dad, are you leaving for a tournament soon?” And it’s because nobody is used to seeing me for so long at a time around here. Since we moved to Miami almost two years ago, I’ve been nonstop traveling: I’ve played a lot throughout this time, way too much. Last year between juggling the Pga and the European Tours, and this 2015 season due to my poor play and the necessity to continue competing, I don’t remember the last time I was home for two weeks in a row, except for the break between seasons. Incredible but true.

They say golfers reach their prime in their thirties. Today I’ve reached the epicenter (I’m turning 35 years old) and the truth is that I had something else in mind. I never thought that my American adventure would come to a halt and an end in the Web.com Tour, but I suppose that along the way, many times we encounter obstacles. Obstacles that force you to grow and mature as a golfer and as a person. 

Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since my last post, although you’ve probably already noticed, there hasn’t been much to tell as far as golf goes. Without a doubt one of the worst starts of a season of my professional career: ten tournaments played and only three cuts made. If we add the four tournaments I played last Fall to that, which count toward 2015 as well, the beginning of the season couldn’t have been more disappointing.

Hi everyone! Vacation is over, time to get back to the grind. The first stop of a three-week streak of tournaments is the Humana Challenge in Palm Springs, California. And it's incredible how fast the good part comes to an end.
