Your most inspiring sportsperson or individual and why:
Adam Scott, greatest all round professional of all time, great role model on and off the golf course and he swings the golf club pretty nicely too.

What would you serve for the Champions Dinner if you won the Masters?
400g New York Striploin Steak, side of a garden salad and sweet potato chips, maybe even a ginger beer on the side to wash it all down.

Who would be your ideal dinner partner, and why?
My immediate family, always a laugh and love spending time with them all, especially when my grandparents are cooking.

What do you like to do when you are not playing golf?
Usually in the gym and if I’m not in the gym I’ll probably be thinking about the gym.

What is your biggest golfing superstition?
7 tees and 2 ball markers (in case the 1 ball marker isn’t helping me hole putts I’ll use the other one) in my right pocket to start every round. My belt has to match shorts/pants, and left sock before right.

Who has been the biggest influence on your career to date and why?
My parents for sure, they are always there to keep me level headed and my brother as well, he holds me accountable.
