Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
I chose Vanderbilt because it is the perfect mix of athletics, academics, and the city itself. Growing up nearby, Vanderbilt was always somewhere I wanted to go.

What are your career goals?
My career goals are to turn professional after school and pursue the PGA Tour.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
To be successful in the classroom at Vanderbilt it takes good planning as well as hard work. You have to find what works best for you and stick with it. It’s not about the time you spend doing work, but more the quality of time spent.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?
I manage my schedule by not getting stressed out about school. If you look at a busy schedule as an opportunity and not a burden, it changes the way you feel about things. I enjoy our schedule of workouts, class, and practice. It teaches you to prioritize your time.

What is your ritual before taking a test?
Drink a Smart water and  always keep four 1971 pennies in my left pocket.
