You can score low out there, but in order to do so you have to be playing well and if your not there are some big numbers you can shoot." ... Favorite memory on the course: "Placing second in the 2009 Florida State Amateur at TPC Sawgrass as a 17 year old. It was the best four rounds of golf I've put together in a tournament. It was nice to see solid results and to know I stack up well against the best amateurs in Florida, which is known as a very tough golf state." ... Majoring in finance.
