What is your favorite food? Italian, since my whole family is Italian I grew up eating it everyday, but I also am a big fan of sushi

What is your favorite movie and golf movie? Hands down Wedding Crashers, and my favorite golf movie is Happy Gilmore

What is your favorite travel spot?  Prague, CZ. It was the first place I’ve been to that was not for a tournament. It was great to experience part of Europe, and to see the history, buildings, and eat some amazing food.

What is your favorite car? BMW M6

What is your favorite thing to do off the golf course? Relax and watch tv or movies. Between practicing/playing golf and working out, I love to just rest and relax my body.

Who would be in your dream foursome? My dream foursome is tough. I’ve played with the best players in the world already. I know my dream foursome, but where we’d play would be the special part. My dream foursome would be me, my dad and my 2 best friends Nick and Chris at Augusta.
