  • Received his first set of golf clubs at age 2. Parents said he tried to sneak out of the house whenever he could to hit balls in his yard.
  • Says he eventually quit playing baseball because he was using his "golf swing" in the batter's box, leading to an inordinate number of strikeouts.
  • Enjoyed playing Impossible Chipping Contests with his friends at Wildwood Green GC, where they would intentionally give each other the worst lies possible and then see who could get the ball closest to the pin.
  • Is a big fan of the Carolina Panthers.
