What’s the biggest reason you care about helping HBCU golf programs?
To support the next generation. I was given so much as a kid and was fortunate enough to attend a great university. I had a lot of people there supporting me, and that made a world of difference for me. Helping kids academically is so important, generally. Providing young golfers scholarships if they want to pursue the sport is critical for supporting golf's next generation.
Does golf need to change anything to get more people into playing?
It starts with accessibility, cost and getting people to and from the course. Where I’m from, nobody played golf. We need to show kids that the game is fun — not so uptight and so "country club". Without help, I personally don’t think I would have been able to get into golf, so I’m determined to try and remove that barrier for others.
