What is your favorite thing about IMG Academy and why?

The atmosphere. It’s like a college campus. You are free and have a responsibility.

Do you have any pre-game rituals that help you prepare for a big game?

I put on really thick sweat pants and a really thick jacket, then go outside in front of my house and just hit the wall for like an hour while listening to music. Then I go inside and I read.

Kelly Slater.

What is your favorite thing to do after you win a game?

Go to the pizza place with my friends.

What motivates you to push through a tough practice?

Thinking about how much better I’m going to get after. I know that it’s going to be good in the long run so I try to do it as well as I can.
