I am a competitive junior golfer interested in pursuing golf at the highest level. My near-term goals are to play at a nationally ranked competitive university where I can further develop my golf game and will challenge me academically in my field of choice to prepare me for life after college.
Prior to dedicating my focus to golf, I believe my experience as a competitive ice hockey and soccer player have provided me the tools to be a great college teammate. While I enjoy playing on teams (preferably winning teams), I also thrive on the individualistic pressure that comes along with the playing the game of golf.
Some of my proudest moments playing sports include scoring a goal on my first hockey shift in midgets, shooting 68 in final round of Toyota Cup Q-School to Qualify for TTC, firing the low round 67 at 2016 Corey Pavin invitational, and being awarded the MVP of my high school golf team as a freshman.
When I am not grinding on the practice range or doing homework, I love attending Anaheim Ducks and San Diego Chargers games.
Coming off an exciting summer 2017, I am looking forward to playing at UC Davis.
