The way Southern Miss' program was set up, I had the best chance of making an immediate impact. I wanted to be a factor and be able to help the team out right away. And it's a solid program with a chance to do well nationally.

It's a big step. I'll be playing against the best amateurs in the world and that's big. It will help my game. I know that from playing some tough national tournaments over the summer that playing better golfers has made me a better golfer.

I want to assure the public and those who follow the criminal justice system that Mr. Sutton is not receiving any special or preferential treatment whatsoever.
