Mariano has been playing competitively from a young age. When he was 15, as a result of his impressive scores in national tournaments, the AAG (Association Argentina de Golf) allowed him to train with the best coaches in Argentina. During the summer holidays in 2008 he went to IMG academy to train for two months while attending an English course at Miami University. A the age of 17, Mariano has improved his skills greatly but thought he could do more to further improve his golf results. In order to do this, he started training with a golf psychologist and this has helped him tremendously. That year, he finished 5th in a very competiative tournament and made it to the round of 69 in another. He also won two metropolitan tournaments while making 3 rounds under par, including the Abierto de Buenos Aires, the most important tournament at his golf course.

Last year Mariano went to IJGA academy (Hank Haney) to keep developing new techniques and finished 3rd at the Eagle Point tournament of IJGT.

Mariano describes himself as a fighter; even when he does not play to his satisfaction for several weeks, he manages to stay focused and keep training harder in order to reach a higher level.
