I'm from a town in Florida called Pensacola. I was born in Orlando but moved to Pensacola at a very young age. I eventually started to play a game golf, and I don’t even remember holding my first ever club I was so little. I used to spend hours on hours outside hitting this little white ball across the golf course, not knowing how much of an impact it would have on my life.
I grew up on a golf course called Osceola Municipal Golf Course. It's one of the oldest courses in Florida. It's open and short but it was home. My brother, father, friends, and I spent pretty much all of my childhood playing there. I played with all of the local guys all the time, and learned everything from stories, special shots, rules, jokes, and most important this game called golf.
I started playing in local junior events with the GGJGA events or now called First Tee of Gulf Coast. I started to fall in love with this game and got better and better. I won many times on the junior section and took my love to high school. I played at Pensacola Catholic High School where I won multiple events and got lucky enough to get a scholarship to play for the University of West Florida. I went on and got my degree and turned professional about 7 months after my graduation.
Now, I am playing golf full time on and off minitours. I have 3 wins as a professional, and I play full-time golf now on the APGA Tour and have conditional status on PGA Latin America. I currently still am in Orlando, and I've been fortunate to have played well and supported myself throughout this year. I've been able to travel and play in big events and go to places around the country I never could when I was little. I've played in the Texas State Open, the John Shippen Invitational, Latin American golf Q School, and countless other events. I couldn't do this myself, and I have so many people to thank. I'm still pursuing my dream to play on the PGA Tour, and hopefully I can say I do in the future.
