Personal


  • Walk up song would be "Thunderstruck" by AC / DC.
  • Proposed to his wife at Reunion Tower in Dallas. They started dating at the end of their senior year of high school.
  • Earliest golf memory is hitting golf balls in his front yard with his dad. He then turned five and hit one on to the roof and eventually hit a ball over the house into the backyard. Also, it was only a one story house.
  • He always mark his golf ball with a quarter eagle side up when putting for birdie or better and heads up when putting for par or worse.
