On when he decided he wanted to be a professional golfer, and the challenges he has faced on making it to the PGA TOUR:

“I really didn’t decide that I wanted to pursue a career in golf until my senior year of college.  It always was a goal of mine from youth, but I didn’t know for sure until I was about to graduate because I had horrible fundamentals growing up.  I was extremely inconsistent.  However, I kept getting better and better every year.  I decided to turn pro in the fall of 2009.  I played week to week for the first half of 2010 until I qualified for the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, one of my biggest achievements thus far as a professional.

“Timing has kept me from getting to the next level.  I won 15 times last year, and I’m confident that my game is ready.  I know if I can get out there, then I will stay out there.”
