When did you start playing and where?
I started playing golf in my teenage years at Torrequebrada Golf Club near Malaga in Spain. My eldest brother, Juan, was working as the Pro there and I used to go along and earn some money by collecting golf balls and doing some caddying. When I had a chance, I used to hit a few shots and watch the Professionals play tournaments as much as possible, and it was this that inspired me and made me realise I wanted to be like them and travel the world as a Professional Golfer.
Do you have a favourite course?
I have a number of courses I love around the world for different reasons. For example, my favourite course in Spain is El Saler, which is an amazing course along the Mediterranean coast near Valencia and I like Royal Birkdale very much, where we have played The Open over the years. I also have favourite courses where I have very special memories of winning and Hong Kong Golf Club is certainly one of those. It is a great golf course, fun and challenging to play and has one of the best (if not, the best) clubhouse we visit on Tour!
