"I chose Bollé as partner because I need the best products possible to achieve my goals. The variety of performance eyewear that Bollé provides helps me adapt to the myriad of different conditions."

"My career has been one of slow steady improvement. I was cut from my high school freshman golf team, but by my senior year we won the state championship. College was much the same, not many positive results early, but some wins by my senior year. I missed getting through Q school 7 times, but once I got onto the Web.com, I’ve managed to stay a touring professional for more than ten years, including the past 6 on the PGA Tour. My first win on the PGA Tour was in 2016 at the Shell Houston Open."

  • Do you have a particular habit, a ritual before a competition? I like a good hour long warm up. It gives me the time to prepare myself both physically and mentally. I play best when I’m calm and focused.
  • What is your favorite competition spot? Pebble Beach. It’s beautiful and a great course.
  • What is the best memory in your career? Probably my first win on the PGA Tour last year. It’s always nice to be known as a “winner” at the highest level.
