Q & A

Q: What are some of your nicknames?

Joe, Jojo, Rev

Q: How did you get into golf? Explain.

I started playing in my backyard with my grandparents in Saint-Luc after school around 6 years old.  My uncle was a golf professional and I really wanted to play golf like he did.  We lived on #7 at Saint-Luc and I played a lot of shots on that little par 3.  After that my parents signed me in at summer golf camps at Pinegrove Country Club when I was 10-11 years old.  My relationship with the members started at an early age because I was always on the putting green and chipping green.  I started competing around that age for the golf club and I loved it.  I met great supporting people and great friends.

Q: How do you mark your golf ball?

Nothing special, just the colour changes depending on the team I represent.  Red when I play for Team Canada, blue when I was playing for the MTSU Blue Raiders and green when I was playing for the Saint Leo Lions.

Q: Do you have any siblings? If so, how old?

One sister, Charlotte, 20 years old.

Q: What was the last book you read?

Killing Kennedy

Q: Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Probably the best looking actor in Hollywood or my uncle Michel Laperriere, he is a great actor, but he might need a little help to imitate my golf swing!  And the producer has to be Jill Mazursky!

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? Any hidden talents?

I play a little but of guitar.

Q: What exercise do you dread the most?

The plank or suicides.

Q: What was the last picture that you took on your phone?

Picture at the Habs game in Nashville.

Q: What is the best thing about your hometown?

First, La Prairie, QC where I currently live is beautiful.  It is picturesque especialy in the old part of town and by the Fleuve Saint-Laurent.  However, the people are the best thing about that city!  Also, I was born and raised in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC and went to primary school and Cegep there, so it is a special city for me.

Q: Do you have any superstitions?

None.  I just like to have a plan.

Q: What is the most surprising thing in your golf bag?

I have no idea.

Q: If you could have a walk-up song on the first tee box, what would it be?
