What is post-college life like for you?
After college, I decided that I wanted to keep pursuing golf but on a professional level. I’m 24 now and spend most
of my time training to be a pro. I’ve also been doing some business consulting for golf training, which is a great blend
of my degree and passion.
Tell us about your professional track and how you train.
I moved back to Florida in December of 2015. I knew I wanted to play
at my best, so I reached out to Coach Gary Gilchrist to train with him
at the GGGA facilities again. I spend almost all my mornings practicing,
sometimes training in the evenings. I’m in the gym three times a week
“Gary is a perfectionist -
but he doesn’t try to make
and have been working with GGGA’s Fitness Coach Trevor Hypolite for
about a year now as well.
Why do you choose to train with Coach Gary Gilchrist?
Training with Gary is amazing. He has a simple approach. He is so knowledgeable and makes the game easy
to understand. He is so talented at identifying a players potential - finding a players strengths and
weaknesses. He has this ability to really create a huge belief in yourself. I have to work on my desire to
be a perfectionist, which Gary understands completely. Gary is perfectionist - but he doesn’t try to
make you perfect.
How has the last year been going?
I’m having a really great year. I play in Moonlight Tours and the Florida Professional Golf
Tour. I’ve had three Moonlight victories in the last year since being back with
Gary and I was first alternate for the US Open Sectional Qualifying. I’ve
learned a lot about how to prepare and practice properly and the level
of commitment and acceptance the game of golf needs. I love golf. I
love the challenge of the game. In the end, it’s up to you and golf is all
about finding what works for you.
