Eduardo is known all over the world as 'El Gato' (the cat). Most people think it's because of the way he prowls around the golf course, but the truth is his grandmother gave him the name when he was 5 because he was always climbing trees and sitting on roof tops. His father was the pro at Cordoba GC so Eduardo was brought up around golf and wanted to be a pro from a very early age.
As one of the first truly international players, he enjoys a huge fan base and has played in literally thousands of tournaments all over the globe. He's qualified for 57 majors and has over 100 career victories to his name, including 8 on the European Tour and 6 on the Senior Tour. He's competed in 8 Dunhill Cups and represented Argentina an unprecedented 14 times in the World Cup.
Eduardo now spends the majority of his time playing on the US Champions Tour and in 2006 won the highly prestigious 'Rookie of the Year' award having won his first Senior Major - the '06 Jeld-Wen Traditional and finishing second at The Senior British Open. His good form continued into '07 when he finished second at the US PGA Championship and the following week 2nd at The Boeing Championship but 2008 was by far his best season to date with 3 victories including a win at The US Senior Open and a 3rd place finish at The British Senior Open.
When he's not playing golf Eduardo likes to hunt and watch soccer, tennis and polo. He's also a great host and enjoys cooking for his family and friends, especially Argentinean steak on his barbecue at home.He's often asked who is his favourite athlete, well it's the Argentine basketball star Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs.
His travel and playing schedule is very demanding so he works hard to stay fit and strong. He practices an Indian yoga technique called Rhami Hayat that has helped his game and his mind a great deal over the last few years.
