Day 1 of the 2017 Starburst Junior Golf Classic is in the books. Matt performed better than expected, besting his 18 hole scoring average by 2 strokes to lead the tournament by 1. His ball striking was not on par but his short game was great propelling him into the lead. His mother caddied for the majority of the round and both looked to be in good spirits and moved around the course as was laid out in his course notes. He shot 74 with only 1 double.
