How did you get started in golf?
My father helped introduce me to the game by having me ride alongside him in a cart and playing a few holes here and there in my hometown of Michigan City, Indiana. I was hooked once I figured out what a competitive game golf was and how I could relate it to other sports I grew up playing.

Why do you love the game of golf?
I love golf because of the ability to meet so many people from around the world that share the same passion for improvement, enjoyment of the game, and the thrill of competition.

Treat others how you want to be treated.

Homemade Chili

What is always stocked in your refrigerator?
Hot Sauce

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Right here in Orlando because I have everything I need to feel right at home.

Is there anything you are addicted to? Or can’t live without?
Being around the game of golf.

What movie do you watch again and again?
Dumb and Dumber

Where is your favorite place to travel and why?
Costa Rica, because of the amazing scenery, food and friendly locals (and it’s where I had my honeymoon!)

What’s one thing we don’t know about you?
I love spicy food and make my own hot sauce.
