Personal


  • Graduated from Diamond Bar High School in Diamond Bar, California, in 2015, the same school that produced the PGA TOUR's Kevin Na (2001). Other notable alums from the school include Major League Baseball's Jim Edmonds, soccer's Alex Morgan and the NBA's Keith Van Horn.
  • Says he enjoys golf because "the mental toughness needed to play this sport at a high level is unbelievable, and it requires your attention all the time. Although it may not necessarily require the most physical ability, it is by far the hardest sport I have ever played."
  • Is a big fan of the Ranger's Apprentice series of books. Likes to watch American Ninja Warrior, and listens to RL Grime and Flume.
