Can you provide our readers a brief biography?

When did you start golfing and who introduced you to the game?
I started playing at the age of 11 with my Dad and Brother. I can still remember the first round I beat my Dad for the first time, it was bittersweet for him!
What is your current home course?

To date, what is your proudest golf accomplishment?
Becoming a member of the PGA.
What is your biggest golf pet peeve on or off the course?
Slow play and not playing ready golf.
What is your favorite club in your bag and why?
Driver- I love to try to play different shots off of the tee based on the wind and the direction the hole goes, makes the game fun off the tee!
What is your favorite golf destination?
What course is on your bucket list that you have not played yet?
If you woke up tomorrow and could play one course you played before, where would you play?

If you could change one aspect, rule or thing about golf, what would it be and why?

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.
