When I have free time, I like to
Play computer games/ golf
My favorite hobby is
Golf
My favorite food is

I would describe myself as
Confident
The person I admire the most is
my parents
If I could spend one day with someone, it would be
Bubba Watson. I would want to pick his mind about the game of golf and see what it is that I need to do to get to the next level.
The reason I love my sport is
It's one of the only sports where if you play badly it is your own fault and not anyone else's. There is also many different aspects of the game that are all really different, so you have to practice a lot.
My greatest athletic moment to date is
2nd at the Big Ten baseball tournament my sophomore year at Iowa. 11th at State my senior year in high school for golf.
My favorite sports team is
Chicago Bullls
My favorite athlete is
Tiger Woods & Bubba Watson
The best advice I have received
Don't just learn things that are being taught to you directly. Learn from things that are also being taught to others.
Advice I would give
If something goes wrong learn from it and then forget about it. Do not let one mistake compound into another.
If a movie were made of my life, the actor that would play me would be
Daniel Radcliffe
I would like to be remembered at Sauk for
How well I played the game of golf and how much I helped my teammates get better.
I chose Sauk because
It is very near where I live and is very reasonable financially.
After graduating, I plan to
Get a job with my degree, save up money and then try to get on a mini-tour and eventually my tour card.
