When and how did you start playing golf?
My dad use to take me out when I was six, with my sister, after work. We had one little cut-off club between the two of us and we used to hit a couple of shots. But I didn't really get into it until I was about 10 and my sister's best friend's dad was the head pro and so I would follow the big kids out on the golf course.
What other sports did you play in high school? Or before?
Before high school, I played pretty much every sport: soccer, tennis, basketball and golf. Then by high school it was pretty much just down to golf and basketball. Then I blew my ankle out while I was playing basketball in high school so I just went to golf because I knew I was going to be in that for the long run.
What made you choose to play golf in college?
I fell in love with the game early, when I was really young. Whenever I had to make a choice a between sports, (because) as you get older it takes longer to do each sport, golf was always the front runner. I fell in love with it early and I knew I wanted to play professionally. My mom and dad taught me early on that I need to get a college degree first, so I knew I wanted to play in college to get that.
How did you choose NC State?
My dad went here his freshman year, so I grew up a Wolfpack fan. I love the Raleigh area, so when I had the opportunity to represent the school that I grew up loving, it was a pretty easy choice.
