FAVORITE ATHLETE

“I’d have to say Zach Johnson and Bubba Watson because Zach Johnson is a good, Christian guy and he’s pretty good at golf. And Bubba Watson hits it far and I like to hit it a long ways.”

WHY GOLF?

“I guess all of the other sports got boring after a while. The mental aspect of golf is always new every time you play. It’s really challenging and tough.”

DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE MEMORIES FROM GOLF?

“Yeah, right before I went into high school I got a hole-in-one on No. 8 here while also playing with Taylor Riggs. Also, my first Oldham Cup, I chipped in on No. 8 for us to win. I’m also undefeated as an individual in the Oldham Cup through my high school career.”

FAVORITE COLLEGE OR PRO TEAM?

“For my pro team, I like the  Broncos but I don’t like Peyton Manning. I’m also a big Tarheel fan and Murray State is my college of choice if I were to go somewhere.”
