With an excellent short game that impresses the most veteran of players, Pedro is continuing to gain distance with his driver to round out his abilities on the course. Pedro is the current South American Champion and has 20+ victories to date. He is extremely competitive and focused on improving his game this season. 


In 2016, after Brazil hosted the Olympics, Pedro received his first golf bag with only 4 clubs to begin practicing with. Since then, Pedro hasn't stopped working on his game.


Even at a young age, Pedro has shown a lot of promise as a golfer with amazing potential. The areas that he hopes to improve on include distance control and course strategy. Pedro loves any kind of challenge and has practiced hard to overcome whatever the game throws at him. Pedro continues to work every day to develop his game and become a better player.


Pedro’s long-term goals include playing for the Brazilian National Team, playing college golf in the United States, and playing on the PGA Tour.
