Landa Park is up today with beautiful weather. A full field of 90 juniors, 11 of which are in Matt’s division. Matt’s short game continuing to struggle. 11% up and down and only 1 putt made inside of 5 feet. Difficult to play tournament golf with those stats. We know what will be worked on […]

After it raining all week, we awoke Saturday to beautiful conditions and dry greens. Took the opportunity to get some putting drills in and continue the long and laborious road towards short game domination. Matt hit the putting arc from 9 feet and did 50 with and 50 without.

Another season has begun. Matt has moved up early into the 11-12 STPGA Junior Tour. With distances ranging from 5400-5800 yards and Matt still being one of the shortest, height wise, out there he will have to have his ball striking and short game on par to compete. He will be playing from these tees […]
