Q1: When did you start playing golf competitively and how did it start?

A1: I started golfing when I was 14, my godbrother got me into it, and I kept playing more and more, [as I] started to really like it.

Q2: What goals do you have for this year?

A2: This year I want to have a scoring average of 70, do well at districts and regionals so I can go back to states, and do a lot better this year than I did last year

Q3: How do you practice golf outside of the season?

A3: I actually practice more outside of the season than I do during the season. I go to the course about 6 days a week, do 18 holes, and work on my technique and skills

Q4: What’s been the greatest moment of your golf career?

A4: Last year at regionals I got off to a slow start but ended up coming back and tying for second, and it was what qualified me for states.

Q5: Do you have any plans to play golf after high school?

A5: Definitely, golf is different than most sports, most schools only bring a few players to tournaments, so there’s more competition but I’m really looking forward to that.

Q6: What is your favorite professional tournament to watch?

A6: The Masters–it’s one of the biggest and most important tournaments, and Augusta is a great course.
