Q & A

  • Q: What are some of your nicknames?

    Joe, Jojo, Rev

  • Q: How did you get into golf?

    I started playing in my backyard with my grandparents in Saint-Luc after school around 6 years old.  My uncle was a golf professional and I really wanted to play golf like he did.  We lived on #7 at Saint-Luc and I played a lot of shots on that little par 3.  After that my parents signed me in at summer golf camps at Pinegrove Country Club when I was 10-11 years old.  My relationship with the members started at an early age because I was always on the putting green and chipping green.  I started competing around that age for the golf club and I loved it.  I met great supporting people and great friends.

  • Q: How do you mark your golf ball?

    Nothing special, just the colour changes depending on the team I represent.  Red when I play for Team Canada, blue when I was playing for the MTSU Blue Raiders and green when I was playing for the Saint Leo Lions.

  • Q: Do you have any siblings? If so, how old?

    One sister, Charlotte, 20 years old.

  • Q: What was the last book you read?

    12 rules for Life – Jordan Petterson

  • Q: Who would play you in a movie about your life?

    Probably the best looking actor in Hollywood or my uncle Michel Laperriere, he is a great actor, but he might need a little help to imitate my golf swing!  And the producer has to be Jill Mazursky!

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

    I play a little bit of guitar.

  • Q: What exercise do you dread the most?

    The plank or suicides.

  • Q: What was the last picture that you took on your phone?

    Picture at the Waffle House in Murfreesboro, TN.

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

    First, La Prairie, QC where I currently live is beautiful.  It is picturesque especialy in the old part of town and by the Fleuve Saint-Laurent.  However, the people are the best thing about that city!  Also, I was born and raised in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC and went to primary school and Cegep there, so it is a special city for me.

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    None.  I just like to have a plan.

  • Q: What is the most surprising thing in your golf bag?

    My caddy usually complains it’s too heavy, but I have no idea 😉

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

    “Old time rock and roll” by Bob Seger

    “Headlines” by Drake
