Cites winning the 2007 Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational as his biggest thrill in golf. Was a member of the Davis High School (Kaysville, Utah) state championship basketball team.
Is an avid ping-pong player. Says changing his children's diapers is no problem since he has more than 20 nieces and nephews.
With his Spanish-language background, considered himself part of the Web.com Tour's "Latin Federation," which at the time included Miguel Angel Carballo, Sebastian Fernandez, Fabian Gomez and Esteban Toledo.

Lists Cafe Rio in Salt Lake City as his favorite restaurant.
His most-memorable Christmas present was the first set of Ping Eye-2 beryllium irons he received when he was 12.
