“It’s just so big. I mean, I didn’t start playing golf when I was a kid like most of these guys. I started late when I was 15. And when I started, obviously you have this dream. But you never know if it’s gonna happen. So the fact that it happened is just surreal. I’ve seen these guys for so long. Just to be a part of this is so big,” he said.
