Q & A

  • Q: Who or what got you into golf?

    My dad introduced me to golf when I was about 4 years old. I was “caddying” for him on the weekends while he was playing with his buddies. I played my first 18 holes at the age of 7 and the rest is history.

  • Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? Any hidden talents?

    I used to dance when I was young. I also did figure skating when I was around 3-5 years old.

  • Q: What is the best thing about your hometown?

    Poutine!!!

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    I always play with either a Titleist 1 or Titleist 3 in tournaments. I also always talk to my grandparents before each round.

  • Q: If you could have a walk-up song on the first tee box, what would it be?

    “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond
