Another week another tournament for Matt and the boys. This time we make the hike up to Round Rock, just north of Austin, for an STPGA Junior Tour event held at Teravista. We knew the weather was going to be cold and windy and prepared as best as possible for the conditions. Had a good […]
Saturday can only mean one thing, Short Game Saturday. Matt did some putting drills and then focused on 15-25 footers trying to make every putt and keep his total par are below. Historical statistics mandate that a player will have x% of 3 putts and x% of 1 putts when hitting the green. With 60 […]
Super cold out today so Matt was inside working on his swing and playing some holes on the simulator. He was recording his swing. When he was done I went and grabbed this to share.
Every couple of years we get Matt evaluated physically to make sure we are working on the correct things in regards to flexibility and strength conditioning. Today was his current evaluation. Previously we were made aware that his flexibility is not the best and he could be stronger. Not the wisest thing to have a […]
Matt back at it again, this week at Fort Sam (La Loma). He knows the course well. Been only working on process and procedure over the past weeks. Came into the event with the goal of following said process for each shot. Matt started the shotgun on hole 8. He proceed to play his first […]
Another edition of Short Game Saturday is here. Seeing how Matt has a tournament at Fort Sam tomorrow and Fort Sam is 10 minutes from our house might as well do our drills from there. Matt got a good handle on his speed, then began 10 and 15 foot putting drills. 8 balls in a […]
Matt back for his 2nd tournament of the season. Today’s goal was to follow procedure to the best of his ability. He did much better than last week, although the score does not reflect it. He legitimately should of shot in the mid 70s but with an OB and a double on a par 3, […]
First tournament of the new Junior Tour season, held at Sonterra Country Club. Matt played a practice round last week in preparation, getting around the course in short order. He was ready for today’s event. He started off well enough, but quickly lost focus, spending too much energy on socializing with his playing partners as […]
Matt back at it for another session of Short Game Saturday. Working on alot of chipping, high, low and normal carries. He finished up the day having a putting contest with some of the College guys that were at the course practicing. I heard he got 2nd of of 4, not too shabby.
Matt had no scheduled practices / events for the day, so we decided to get his practice in at the site of his next tournament Sonterra South. It was a good opportunity for Matt to refine his yardage book and get a good feel of how fast the course is playing and enjoy a round […]
Whenever we receive new clubs, we need to brand them up MattPawlyGolf style. Matt is all about Orange and Flames, so as always we put the flame shaft covers on his new clubs and got out the acrylic paint and did a little bit of pain fill. Until club manufacturers wise up to the fact […]
If you remember back to last month we went to Matt’s club builders MK Golf Technologies for Matthew’s yearly fitting. 2017 Club Fitting We came away from that fitting placing a order for a new driver, a new 3 wood and 11 new shafts (irons and hybrids) and 13 grips. We needed to finish up the […]
During our STPGA winter holiday break, got an email from Republic promoting their Adult Junior Scramble. Checked with Matt’s Coach and made sure he would have a playing partner. All good. Neither Matt nor Brad played particularly well, but they still managed to squeak out a 1 stroke win in the event. I only videoed […]
