- First got into long drive two years ago. Hadn’t picked up a club for two years prior and hit it 390 in the simulator. Lee Cox now his coach (same as Joe Miller). Was swinging 139mph out of the gate, then had to retool swing for WLD.
- June 2017 in second-ever long drive event he beat Tim Burke in Round of 16; lost to Will Hogue in Quarters by 2 yards. Realized he belonged amongst the best in the sport.
