1.     What is your major?  Career aspirations?
Exercise Science major, Biology minor.  I want to become a doctor. I’m going to medical school in the fall.  
 
2.     Favorite class?
I took Black Holes and Cosmic Evolution as an elective with my roommate/teammate Marc Oliveri. It was pretty mind blowing.
 
3.     Three words to describe yourself?
Filipino, sarcastic, funny...?

Other than playing golf as a Blue Hen, I really enjoy being part of the media team’s videos with Hens All-Access and Jimmy and Nina.
 
5.     The best nickname on the team?
The most “appropriate” nickname would probably go to Kyle Martin. We call Kyle “K Mart” or “Big Red.”

Fraser Graham. He doesn’t even have to tell a joke. When he laughs we all laugh. Probably because his laugh is a really high pitched squeak.

Tacos
 
9.  Who is your favorite musical artist?
Train, but not their new music. Their older albums are the best.
 
10.  What is your game-day playlist?
What ever I’m feeling at the moment. Chances are one song is going to get stuck in my head the entire day so it has to be a bearable song.
 
11.  Any superstitions?
In player’s golf bags their irons are organized in numerical order (3, 4, 5 iron in one pocket, 6, 7, 8 in the next, etc) When I was around 11 years old I started organizing them odds and evens (3,5,7 then 4,6,8) and I haven’t switched them since.
 
12.  What’s one song or artist on your iPod that nobody would know?
When I took organic chem, there was an extra credit assignment where we had to get in groups to make a song about organic chemistry. My good friend and neighbor Brendan Horne sang a chemistry related rendition of “Baby If You Give It To Me” by Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey.

To be a member at Augusta National Golf Club, which where they play the Masters.
