I started playing golf when my Dad introduced me to the game at age 4. I played all sorts of sports growing up, but I decided to concentrate on golf at the age of 15 when I moved to Florida to go to IMG Academy. IMG Academy is a sports school that offers elite coaching as well as schooling. My goal from the start was to gain a scholarship to a US university to play college golf. After two and a half years of coaching at IMG Academy, I gained a four-year golf scholarship to Tulane University in New Orleans.
I loved every minute of my time at Tulane. Over the four years I spent there, I played in three National Championships and I was awarded four-time All-Conference selection. I also won two career titles including a T1st finish in our Conference Championship. I graduated from Tulane in May 2015. During amateur golf, I played for Scotland in the World Amateur Championship in Japan, the Spirit International in the US, the European Team Championships, and in two South American Amateur Championships in Colombia and Peru where I finished runner-up in both. The highlight of my amateur career was playing for GB&I in the 2014 Curtis Cup in St Louis, Missouri.
