Q: How did you fall in love with your sport?

A: I fell in love with golf at a very young age. My dad introduced me to the game when I was two and I have loved it ever since.

Q: What’s your favorite moment as an athlete in that sport?

A: My favorite moment so far has been being able to compete in many AJGA tournaments, state open’s and the HJGT National Championship. I just love to compete.

Q: What is your favorite sports moment as a fan?

A: My favorite moment as a fan was watching Tiger Woods win his first tournament in several years, the Tour Championship. It was just amazing watching the gallery following him up the 18th fairway.

Q: What athlete do you look up to the most and why?

A: I most look up to Tiger Woods. I love how he shows leadership and helps those who need it. I also admire how on the course he is able to block out everything around him to give himself a competitive edge.

Q: Best advice you’ve received from a coach, mentor or teammate in your sport?

A: The best advice I have ever received was from Mike Bowman: ‘grip it and rip it.’
