I am 25 years old and I live in Austin, TX. I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved out here for school. My family is spread out all over the country, with my parents in Wyoming, brother in California, and sister in Colorado. Visiting them gives me the opportunity to play golf all over. I am graduating from Texas State University in San Marcos in 2011. I plan on staying in Austin after graduating. The city is great and the amount of quality golf courses in the area will keep me busy for a very long time. I have played competitive golf since I was in 6th grade. I only played golf for a year in college, but continued to play in whatever amateur tournaments I could find. Amateurgolf.com was a huge help for me in finding tournaments in the Austin area.

Holes-in-one:   1
I made my one and only hole-in-one on the 8th hole at Ladera Golf Course in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was in a high school tournament so it made the shot that much more memorable.

High school team
I played for Sandia Preparatory School from 8th grade all the way through 12th grade.

Golf destinations wish list
Obviously, St. Andrews is near the top of this list. I feel that any golfer, if given the opportunity would take a round here over just about any course in the world. Another destination on my list has to be Pebble Beach. I have been lucky enough to play there and would recommend it to anyone. It doesn't matter if you play the best round of golf of your life or one of the worst, you will enjoy playing this course more than any. It is by far the most memorable course I have ever played, which is why this course will always remain on my destination list. The last place that would be on my golf destination list would have to be The Legends Golf and Safari Resort in South Africa. The only reason this is on my list is because they have an unusual 19th hole. This tee box to this hole can only be reached to by helicopter and it is 1,400 feet above the green, and the green happens to be shaped like Africa. Supposedly it takes 30 seconds for the ball to even reach the ground after you tee off. After seeing the video of some pros playing this hole, I have very much wanted to try it for myself as soon as possible.

Other than golf, I have an interest in music. I live in Austin, which has an amazing live music scene. I started going to concerts when I lived in Albuquerque but after moving here, is has almost become an obsession. I have probably been to hundreds of concerts in the past 10 years or so. I took up the guitar a few years ago as well, and even though I am not very good I enjoy playing. Another interest of mine is fishing. I have been fly fishing my entire life and it is one of my favorite things to do. On top of that I enjoy occasionally playing other sports and hanging out with my friends and family.

Greatest Golf Moment
The greatest golf moment for me was when I won the New Mexico AAA state golf tournament in 2003. I was a sophomore at the time and was unable to play in state the year before because I broke my ankle two days before the tournament started. I made it my goal to not only get to state, but to win it the next year. It was the best feeling to set this goal, work hard at it, and accomplish it.
