About Athlete

I have always played and enjoyed sports.  I started playing hockey since I was 5 years old and football as a QB since I was 8 years old, even playing those 2 sports for my previous high school.  I have also played 2 years basketball getting the MVP title for those 2 years from my high school and teammates.  

I started playing golf in 2014 and started playing tournaments in 2015 and loved the competition.  Spring 2018, my parents decided to hire a coach for me to get my game to the next level as I was competing with golfer that were playing for more years than me.  In July 2018, after a round of 80 in the Junior provincial tournament, I promised myself and my coach that this was the last time with that score.  From that moment, I decided to change school to be in a student-athlete program and be able to concentrate on my golf.

As you will see below, I’ve worked hard to get my scores to improve over the last year.

I want to enroll in a US College to be able to play 12 months a year and to compete to a higher level of golf.  I have the discipline and a good work ethic to balance both my academic and my sport.

What makes you different?

I have played many sports and recently golf became my main focus. From the tee I am very strong and can be accurate with my short irons.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to play 12 months a year, which is not possible in Quebec (Canada). I want to be able to compete at a higher level to elevate my game. I also need to have a strong academic training which I feel I would be able to get while attending a US college. Ultimately, the main goal would be turn pro.

College Goals?

I want to win championship for my team and get a good degree to allow me to continue my sport after, when I turn pro.

Anything else we should know?

I have played up to recently: hockey, basketball and football. I am a good team player.
