Personal


  • Likes to surf and watch Australian Rules Football but says his favorite sport is cricket. Says it's tough to explain cricket to Americans, but "it's a lot like golf because it lasts a long time, you have to pace yourself, requires strategic decision making, and you must take chances at the right time."
  • Lists Greg Norman as one of his heroes as a youngster but modeled his game after Ernie Els.
  • Launched the Begin Again Foundation in 2016. Inspired by wife Audrey's near death experience in April 2015, the Begin Again Foundation was born out of a fiery passion for helping others. The foundation works to bring life's most pressing needs to families experiencing medical and life crises.
