Sometimes they don’t even know where I am.”
His grandad introduced him to golf when he was six. He said: “My grandad is someone who has had a big influence on me, and if I can become half as good a person as he is, I know I’ll be fine. He’s so positive, so hard-working, and such a good person towards everyone, that he really taught me how to be – as a person and on the course. He’s the one who got me into golf when I was six. I’d play in the back yard of my grandparent’s farm. Then, once I could play, he and I would play 18 holes and only stop for an ice cream or a hot dog and play 18 more. Those were some of the best times of my life, just playing golf for fun and nothing else.”
