He was a three-time Southern Conference Player of the Year (2010, 2011, 2012), a first team PING All-American (2012), and second team Golfweek All-American (2012). He had two collegiate tournament wins his junior year, taking the 2011 LSU National Invitational and the 2011 Golfweek Conference Challenge, and added two huge victories in 2012, winning the Southern Conference championship and the NCAA Bowling Green Regional.
