Personal


  • Aspirations outside of golf include coaching college golf someday.
  • Earliest golf memory is, "...playing 18 with my Dad, Retief Goosen and his brother Phillip in South Africa when I was 11. I was awestruck, and my life was changed that day. It was in 2000, and he went on to win two U.S. Opens after that. He is my role model and one reason why I play the game, and love it so much."
  • Supports charities that benefit animals. States, "I try to support anything that has to do with animals. I love dogs so much, and have a golden retriever and adopted Corgi mix." Is also involved with his church, Second Baptist Houston North, "serv[ing] the youth and try[ing] to be involved as much as I can with any events."
  • First tee walk-up song would be any country song. Is a big country music fan.
