Q & A

  • Q: How did you get into golf?

    We had plastic baby golf clubs in our house and the first time I hit my parent’s new TV, they said “time to go to the range!” Since then, I fell in love with the game.

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

    I played guitar for 6 years – don’t ask me to play anything because I forgot everything I learned…

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

    It is peaceful, safe, close to the city, and it is right by the ocean.

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    No.

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

    “Dancing Queen” by ABBA.
