HIS OWN WORDS

What your Olympic experience meant to you? "It was unbelievable. It's something you dream about growing up as a kid. I didn't think I'd be able to do it before I graduated college. It was great being with so many good guys with so many different paths to playing pro. I learned so much from them. I'd never been to South Korea so that was a good experience too."

 

What he is looking to improve most upon this season: "I think more of it is mental, just having the confidence to come out here and play my game. Keep improving every day and just have an impact every night. That's my main focus."
