Not that his superb play on the links helps him to maintain that modesty.
In his first year of collegiate golf, Bray has proven his value to the future of UNC's golf program. A prized in-state recruit from Asheboro, Bray's performance on the fairways and greens continues to catch the eye of UNC coach John Inman.
"He was definitely not just one of the best players in the country, but one of the best players in the country from North Carolina," Inman said. "We were very fortunate that he selected us."
Despite coming in so highly regarded, Bray still has personal goals he has yet to achieve.
"I have extremely high goals," Bray said. "I don't really discuss them with anybody. I do expect a lot out of myself and expect to win golf tournaments. I'm not here to finish in the top five or top 10."
His expectations aren't hard to notice when Bray is on the course. He easily gets frustrated on missed putts and talks to himself in vain on drives that hit the fairway.
UNC teammate Rob Simmons described Bray as the typical golfer, striving to never make a mistake.
"He's a perfectionist just like everybody who plays this game," Simmons said. "He's proven himself as a freshman and has the potential to be one of the best players in the country."
Inman said Bray's maturity level has risen to that of his junior and senior counterparts.
