What or who drives you to do your best at golf and
I’m driven by a dream I’ve had ever since I started
playing golf. I’ve always dreamed of being on the
PGA tour and being one of the best golfers in the
world. This drives me every day because I always have
something to drive toward, and it has given me a sense
of motivation ever since I was a kid.
What went into your choice to attend Rutgers?
A lot of factors went into my choice to attend Rutgers.
I wanted to play Division I golf at a power 5 school
where I could compete at the
highest level, and Rutgers gives
me that opportunity. Education
is one of the most important
things to my family and Rutgers
is a very good academic school.
Also my chemistry with the
coaches and the team was
amazing which helps a lot.
Dream job post-college?
My dream job would be to play
on the PGA tour and compete
against the best golfers in the
world for a living. That would be
the best job ever.
Tell us about raising $1,215 for
Alzheimer’s USA Association.
It was an honor for me to be able to raise money
for this organization as my family has been affected
greatly by the disease. Both of my grandmothers have
Alzheimer’s so to be able to raise money for the cause
was a great honor for me.
How has BGGA impacted your game?
BGGA is the reason I’m where I am today. It gave me
the opportunity to play year round and get the best
coaching available which, along with my work ethic
and the facilities we have access to, is what brought
me to the Division 1 level of golf.
What have you enjoyed about your BGGA experience?
What I have enjoyed most about my BGGA experience
is meeting people from different countries and getting
to understand the different cultures where they come
from. It has definitely been a cool experience getting
to know and live with people from all over the world.
My best memories from BGGA are going on road trips
to away tournaments, especially this past year going to
Atlanta two weekends in a row was very fun.
Which tournament would you most like to win?
I would most like to win The Masters.
You will go far Xavier Marcoux! Go Scarlet Knights!
