On his biggest influence in his life and why:
“I am very fortunate to have two people in my life that have influenced me not only in golf, but also in life – my father and my uncle. My Uncle Russ (Champions Tour Professional and 2011 Senior Open Champion), always has been a positive role model for me. I have grown up watching him be successful on the PGA TOUR and the Champions Tour. If I ever have a question about golf, Russ is the first person I call. He always looks out for me, and he has been in these situations before and knows the best way to handle life as a professional golfer. I want to be that type of player once I make it on the PGA TOUR. My father has been my biggest influence in life. He has molded me into the man and golfer I am today. When I finish every tournament round, I call him first. What he lacks in golf knowledge, he makes up for it in his knowledge on how to compete, and that’s more important than any swing lesson. I am very fortunate to have two individuals such as my father and uncle to be able to talk to and learn from.”
