Personal


  • Started playing golf at age 9 by tagging along with father and brother, Tom, at the local municipal course. By age 12, after mom dropped him off at the course, he played from dawn until dusk, using an all-day youth ticket.
  • Favorite college team is the Cincinnati Bearcats. Favorite professional team is the Cincinnati Bengals.
  • Is perhaps best known for working as an assistant club pro at Trump National Bedminster in New Jersey in 2006-07. Has played numerous rounds with Donald Trump and Trump's celebrity friends. Served as assistant pro from 2004-06 at the PGA GC and PGA CC in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and served as an assistant professional at Trump National in New Jersey.
  • Marks his ball on the green with Presidential dollar gold coins. Roommate from his assistant-pro days, Steven Wyder, a high school history teacher, picks the "lucky" coins each week depending on event locations and dates. Ball marker has its own Twitter handle, @POTUSBallMarker, so his fans can follow.
