Most memorable golfing moment:
Winning the 2022 NSW Junior Championship, and finally getting to represent NSW.

Your most inspiring sportsperson or individual and why:
Rory McIlroy, because I like how loyal he is to the PGA Tour and how he has changed the game with his consistency. Being at the top of world rankings for such a long time is something I can only dream of.

What would you serve for the Champions Dinner if you won the Masters?
Entrée – spring rolls, arancini balls, mini pizza
Main – chicken parmigiana with wings
Dessert – four choc chip cookies, rainbow ice cream scoop and a strawberry milkshake

Who would be your ideal dinner partner and why?
The Brooklyn 99 crew. It’s been my comfort show growing up the past few years, I know pretty much everything about the show would be pretty cool to have dinner with the gang.

What do you like to do when you are not playing golf?
Watch golf Youtube or Watch Brooklyn 99.

What is your biggest golfing superstition?
Can’t walk through the tee boxes with a buggy or bad karma will follow. And I enjoy wearing a shirt that stands out in the final round.

Who has been the biggest influence on your career to date and why?
My dad got me into the game and started my love for golf when I was 11mentoring me until 16. I met my coach, Allen, in August 2021 and he completley changed my mindset on the game of golf and how hard it is going to be a successful professional. Practising and learning from him has been so beneficial to my career. Allen has treated me like a younger brother and has helped me financially, mentally and with my home life. I wouldn’t have progressed so far in the past few years if it weren’t for him.
