Bio

Dream as a child was to play in the NHL.

Favorite pro teams are the Toronto Maple Leafs, Cleveland Cavaliers, Carolina Panthers, and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Got his start in golf at the age of 7 when his parents brought him along to the driving range instead of hiring a babysitter.

Is the first player in TOUR history to win on the Mackenzie Tour–PGA TOUR Canada (PGA TOUR-era), Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA TOUR.

Dream foursome would include "Messrs. Hogan, Nicklaus and Woods".

Dislikes anything with chocolate in it.

Was a standard bearer in Mike Weir's group at the 2004 RBC Canadian Open, shortly after he won the Masters.

Favorite college team is the Kent State Golden Flashes.

Motto is "Success is never owned. It is rented, and the rent is due everyday."

Is the first player in TOUR history to win on the Mackenzie Tour–PGA TOUR Canada (PGA TOUR-era), Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA TOUR.
