Carballo posted his first professional victory at the 2006 Abierto Telefonica de Guatemala, a co-sanctioned event on the Challenge Tour and the Tour de las Américas. He earned his European Tour card for the first time by staging a phenomenal comeback at the 108-hole European Tour Qualifying School in 2005, posting a birdie, hole-in-one, birdie finish on the final three holes to gain playing privileges.

By ranking 10th on the Nationwide Tour's money list in 2011, Carballo earned his PGA Tour card for 2012. He made only 13 cuts in 25 starts and failed to retain his card for 2013. He returned to the now-renamed Tour for 2013 and finished 23rd on the regular season money list to earn his 2014 PGA Tour card.

He was awarded the 2011 Olimpia de Plata by the Argentine Sports Journalists' Circle.
