WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL? Get a degree in sports medicine at ASU.
OTHER THAN YOUR PARENTS, WHO’S HAD THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR LIFE? HOW? Probably my grandpa. He took me hunting, fishing for the first time and I love to do both now.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT GOLF? You get a new chance on every hole. It’s not just one game. It’s basically nine chances to make a better score.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SEASON SO FAR? We’re doing pretty good. We won three in a row.
WHAT’S BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT TO THE SEASON SO FAR? Probably those three wins. We haven’t done that in a really long time.
WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE FOR THE TEAM TO BE SUCCESSFUL THE REST OF THE SEASON? Definitely low scores. Playing together, just constructive criticism, don’t bring anybody down, just play as a team.
TALK ABOUT YOUR GAME NOW; WHAT ARE YOU MOST CONFIDENT IN YOUR ABILITY TO DO? I can putt pretty good. Once I get on the green, it’s usually one or two putts.
WHAT IS IT YOU WORK HARDEST TO IMPROVE IN PRACTICE? My chipping and then just low irons.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE CLUB? Probably my three hybrid. I got it this summer and I’ve hit it well every time I’ve hit it, even when I started out with it.
WHEN YOU’RE THROUGH PLAYING GOLF FOR BRYANT HIGH SCHOOL, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL LOOK BACK AND REMEMBER MOST FONDLY ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE? The friends I’ve made. I’ve made a lot of new friends on the golf team. I probably won’t forget them.
