  • Q: How did you get into golf?

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

    I loved hockey as well growing up and played for 12 years.

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

    Family and friends I grew up with and I like the city a lot.

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    Only 3 tees in the pocket at any given time, using the same ball markers, or lucky alignment sticks.

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