BIO

I play on the local professional golf tours in and around Phoenix, Arizona in the United States. I attended and competed on the golf team for Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California from 2003-2008. 

 Since graduating from Point Loma, I am proud to be pursuing my dream of reaching the PGA Tour. Personal - Graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2008 with a degree in both Business Administration & Accounting. 

 My wife, Stephanie, and I were married on October 17 2009 and we are expecting our first child this August.

US Amateur Qualifier

It's been a busy past couple weeks! Tomorrow I will be qualifying at the Wigwam Golf Resort for the US Amateur. I've come close to qualifying in the past and would absolutely love to qualify to compete in my country's national championship. I was able to play a practice round today and will need to play the par 3's well and take advantage of every scoring opportunity on the par 5's on the golf course. Need to drop some putts to get through. Last week I competed in the Arizona State Amateur qualifier and qualified with a 73. Not my best performance, but I'll be ready to compete in the AZ State Amateur at the beginning of August in Tucson Arizona. The game felt great during the qualifier, but I struggled once again with the putter. I've been focusing on my visualization when putting and trying to allow the athlete in me take over when I putt. I've seen some improvement in my last few practice rounds and am hoping that it will translate tomorrow into a great first round score to put me in a good position to qualify. I'll keep you all updated about how the qualifier goes. I'd love to represent Parallel on a national level after hopefully qualifying!

Off to New Mexico

Hello Everyone, I have to say that I'm extremely excited and glad to be representing Parallel Clothing here in Arizona this year! My schedule has been quite hectic as of late and I'm working hard to prepare for the US Public Links qualifying tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico next weekend. I'm hoping to improve on my finish in the event after nearly missing to grab a spot last year. I shot 70 and was in a seven man playoff for the remaining spots. After parring the first, I bogeyed the second after failing to get up and down. I ended up finishing as an alternate for the championship which was highly disappointing. However, I took a lot of positives from the event that has helped carry me throughout the gradual stages of improvement this past year. This year in New Mexico there are only 40 entries so we will all be fighting for one qualifying spot. I've been working hard on my game and am slowly beginning to see improvements on the overall shape of my swing which should improve the consistency of my ball striking. I have to thank my swing coach Andrew Getson at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale for all the hard work and wisdom he has instilled in me. I'll be keeping you all updated about how the tournament goes and look forward to catching you all up on everything soon. God bless.
