“I am extremely fortunate to be in the position I am today.  I would like to thank all of my family. I have been lucky to have my dad and brother as my golf partners throughout my life. Together they have pushed me to be a better, more competitive player. When it comes to golf my great grandfather is my daily inspiration. He was an amazing golfer (5 hole in ones) and an even better person. I know he’s with me everytime I golf.  I’d like to thank Coach Sturgill, Coach Larkin, Coach Denha, Coach Larson, and Coach Bellamy who have all helped me along this journey. I am excited to start my next chapter as a Bulldog.”
