Personal

  • Was home schooled but competed for the Gaither High School golf team.
  • Actively supports Birdies For Hope, First Tee of Tampa and Clearwater, the Chi-Chi Rodriguez Foundation, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and is closely involved with his home church, Grace Community Church.

  • Regarding his earliest golf memories, he states, "I remember winning the Greater Tampa Junior Golf Association Tournament of Champions in a playoff when I was 9 , and celebrating with my dad and grandpa. And when I was 12-13, I worked the range and was a standard bearer at the Valspar Championship. To be inside the ropes with professional golfers was an experience I will never forget."
  • Of having superstitions on the course, he says, "I mark my golf ball with the Initials, H.A. in memory of my best friend growing up, Harris Armstrong, who died of spinal cord cancer when he was 12."
  • Father, James, works as an independent financial advisor with Raymond James Financial. Mother, Teri, serves on the board of the Foundation of American Christian Education and other organizations and charities surrounding education in Tampa, Florida.
