Interview with Carlos Ortiz

When did you start playing golf?

My father gave me my first clubs when I was three years old, but I started to play seriously at the age of eight.

What is the most important for you in life?

No doubt, that's my family - my parents and my two younger brothers. I really enjoy coming home and we have a great foursome with my dad.

What is your favourite hobby? 

I like many other sports, but I really like anything with and or around water such as fishing or just hang out at the beach.

Did you always want to become a golf professional?

No. As a young kid I started playing football, but I soon realized that golf is most challenging for me.

How and when did you decide to become a professional golfer?

After I went to college I realized that I had what it takes to be a professional.

What do you think is your key to success?

I always try to push my limits – every day.
