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 you perfect.” 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. “I love golf. I love the challenge of the game.
