Segundo Merlos 

Age:                     18 

Handicap: 2 in the US, 3 in Argentina 

Team:      Huntsman    

Home Country:      Home Country is Argentina, but I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

Years Playing Polo: 

I started playing tournaments at 10 years old. I started with the mallet and ball much earlier, and I have photos of me riding as early as 3 years old! 

Pre-game Ritual:                 

When I wake up on a game day, I have to get up on my right leg, even if I’m on the left side of the bed.        

Favorite polo destination:       

Santa Barbara and Florida. 

Favorite part of playing polo:   

The horses and the friendships. 

Favorite local hang out:           

Kitchen Kabaret, in Long Island where I live when I play on the Northeast.  

Favorite song:                   

La Isla del Amor by Demarco, a Spanish musician. 

Like apart from polo:         

I like fishing a lot, after polo my I definitely love fishing. I fish quite a bit in the Florida Keys. 

Professional player I look up to:  

After my dad, I’d have to say Hilario Ulloa. 

Ultimate goal with polo:             

A dream would be to win the Argentine Open. As a player I first of all try to be a good person, a good team mate. As a strategy, I leave everything on the field. I always say that to go out just to play is not worth it, I think you have to go to give it your all.
