Personal


  • If not a professional golfer, would still be working in a job somehow related to golf.
  • His biggest thrill in golf is the pressure he faces at the end of a tournament. Favorite golf memory is playing golf with his father as his home club. "I remember trying to hit a driver over a pond as hard as I could from the ladies' tees when I was young, and as soon as I got it over my dad made me move back a tee."
  • First-tee entrance song would be "The Stone" by the Dave Matthews Band. "Caddyshack" and "Tin Cup" are his favorite movies.
  • Michael Jordan is his favorite athlete outside of golf. Supports all the Philadelphia-area teams, the Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Flyers. A good steak is his favorite meal. The Philadelphia Phillies winning the 2008 World Series is the best sporting event he has attended.
  • Uses U.S. quarters from 1965 to 1967 to mark his ball on the green.
  • Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus would round out his dream foursome. Bucket list includes traveling around the world and playing the world's top golf courses.
