      Seth’s first golf swings were at an early age with plastic golf clubs, imitating the swings of professional’s on TV. He played his first tournament at age 5 in Decatur, Illinois, increasing the amount of tournaments each summer. Golf quickly became a March to November sport with hitting golf balls at inside facilities during the winter months.

      He quickly experienced success on junior tours earning player of the year honors on more than one occasion gaining valuable tournament experience heading into High School.

      In four years at Mahomet Seymour High School he became one of the most accomplished golfers in the school’s history earning “all conference” honors and team MVP all four years he competed. He also added “All State” recognition his senior year and led his team to Mahomet’s first golf State championship in school History.

      Seth was rewarded for a successful high school with a golf scholarship to Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. Continuing to work hard on his game Seth made a statement early, finishing his first collegiate tournament as Bradley’s top finisher. He would retain the #1 position for the remainder of his career constantly going against other team’s best players. In four years at Bradley, Seth competed in every match setting several school records and finishing toward the top in almost all statistical categories in school history.

      After earning a degree in Business Leadership from Bradley in May, Seth is now following his dream and playing golf professionally. Seth is experiencing a new level of success playing against other former collegiate and tour players working towards his goal of playing on the PGA Tour with the world’s best players.
