Personal


  • Is interested in the Southeast Asian cultures after visiting the continent during college.
  • His dad played baseball in college, but he says that after sitting on the bench for a year, he ended his baseball career to focus on attending medical school.
  • His college roommate was a country music singer/songwriter who helped him fall in love with playing the guitar. Brings his guitar when he travels and uses it to relax after a long day.
  • Favorite memory off the course was playing a pickup basketball game in front of over 200 kids at a school in China. Very few could speak English, but he says they all wanted autographs and pictures.
  • Loves the Missouri Tigers and was named the Mizzou Male Athlete of the Year in 2018.
  • Was not recruited much out of high school and loves taking advantage of opportunities when available.
  • Earliest golf memory is hitting with plastic clubs in his grandfather's yard. He was swinging left handed and was promptly yelled at to turn around to the right side.
  • Spent two weeks in China teaching kids English and sharing his passion for golf.
