I grew up in Erie, Pa. At 10, I started caddying for my father and golf became my passion. I got my first set of clubs at 11, and I haven't looked back.

I started college at Gannon University in Erie, in a program with Hahnemann University's medical school. It was designed to educate enrollees as family practitioners at a time when many medical students were pursuing specialties. The time commitment was grueling, however. Labs went until 5 p.m. and I worked at night. I was missing out on extracurricular activities, including the golf team, so I changed my [major] to psychology. I stayed at Gannon for an M.B.A. in finance.
