Personal


  • MVP of high school soccer team.
  • Father, Butch, won twice while playing the PGA TOUR and was a two-time PGA TOUR Champions winner.
  • Has an unusual putting style he adopted from his teacher in 1999. Keeps most of his weight on his left foot, which is placed decidedly forward, to encourage remaining still over putts.
