Golf Dream: Golf being one of my passions, I’d like to incorporate the sport into my career in business. I envision myself working in advertisement for some of my favorite golf brands such as Taylormade, Titleist, or Puma.
Most memorable shot: My most memorable shot was back during a high school tournament my junior year. My opening hole was a par three, my tee shot landed on the fringe about 30 feet from the pin. Using my 8 iron, I played a bump and run shot that ran straight towards the pin and into the hole for birdie!
Why did you choose Belmont Abbey?
I chose Belmont Abbey because I love the atmosphere and sense of community of a small school. Also, wanting to see more than my home state of Florida, I felt that North Carolina was the perfect place to start. As soon as a stepped foot on The Abbey during my visit, I knew this was the place for me.
