Success continued when he secured a US PGA Tour card through the Qualifying School at the end of the season. Noted by fellow competitors as a serious student of the game who was introduced to golf by his father as a child. Since then he has taken that knowledge and expertise of golf, and combined it with his athletic ability and the flexibility he obtained after years of studying the martial arts.
