Why did you choose Belmont?

I chose Belmont because I knew it was the door that God opened for me to take my next step. One of my short term goals in high school was to get a golf scholarship so I could play the game I love and the game I have felt called to play and Belmont was that place where I knew it was a perfect fit.


What do you want to do when you grow up?

My dream ever since I was little is to play professional golf and be one of the best. I know and believe in myself that I can do this dream. I’m a firm believer that the Lord puts dreams and passions in your life for a reason, so I will chase this dream till it’s not a dream anymore.


What is your ritual before a game/meet/match?

I always go through the same pre-round routine before every tournament round. Which is do putting fundamentals, full swing warm up, and then putt and chip for about 5 more minutes and then go tee off.


Who is your favorite athlete and why?

My favorite athlete is Brooks Koepka. His story and how he approaches the game of golf, mentally and physically, is very inspiring in my own life and who I admire on the golf course.


If you didn’t play your sport, what sport would you play & why? 

If I did not play golf, I would definitely try to be a professional driver or tennis player. Whether that would be NASCAR or Indy car driver, or Professional Tennis player that would be awesome.


What are you watching on Netflix now?

I hardly ever watch Netflix, but I am getting ready for the last Avenger movie and have watched the Avenger’s Infinity War recently.


What is your favorite quote?

Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous, do not fear, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
