Holes-in-one:   3
Made my first hole-in-one when I was 17 in a junior tournament in Pittsburgh. Spun an 8 iron back in from 163 yards. Made extra special because my dad was there to see it. Made the second in a college tournament at the University of Virginia. Flew a 4 iron straight in the hole from 205. It came on the 17th hole of the final round with my team in contention and my coach on the tee box with me, so it was a very special feeling. Unfortunately the team came up just short. Third one was in a casual round on #13 at San Francisco Golf Club
