|Achievements and awards|
After turning professional in 2005, Lorenzo-Vera played on the Alps Tour, one of Europe's third tier development tours. In 2006, he won the Open International de la Mirabelle D’or, a tournament he had also won the year before as an amateur, on his way to 4th on the Order of Merit, which gave him a place on the Challenge Tour for the following season.
On Europe's second-tier tour in 2007, Lorenzo-Vera had recorded eight top-ten finishes going into the last event, the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final, and was 7th on the Challenge Tour's money list. He set a new course record in the first round, and went on to win the tournament, which catapulted him to the top of the end of season Challenge Tour Rankings, and guaranteed his card on the top level European Tour for 2008.
The highlight of Lorenzo-Vera's first season on the European Tour was finishing as joint runner-up at the Volvo China Open, having led at half way. He ended the year ranked just outside the top 100 on the Order of Merit, but had done enough to retain his place on the tour.
