Is a 2009 graduate of Valencia (Calif.) High School.

If not a professional golfer, he would be a broadcaster.

Carries two coins with him as a good luck charm. One is from 1991, the birth year of his wife, Lacey, and one from 2018, the year he got Scotty, his yellow lab.

Watches all sports (mostly professional) and is a big fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Dodgers. Legendary Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda made a promise to him in 2017 that he would call him when he won his first PGA TOUR event, and did so following the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship.

Met his caddie, Joe Greiner, when he was six years old playing golf in Valencia, California.

Knows more about reality television than he cares to admit due to watching so much with his wife, Lacey.
