Q&A

  • Q: How did you get into golf?

    I started playing when I was very young and slowly grew to love the game more. Golf became a large part of my life in my early teenage years as I began to play and compete more.

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

    I play golf left-handed despite being right-hand dominant.

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    I always use the same coin (a loonie) as a ball mark for every round.

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