Matt saw his coach again today for his weekly lesson. They watched his tournament round from last weekend and discussed what could be done better to achieve the scoring results he is looking for. They then proceeded to work on tightening up his setup and worked on general ball striking.

A couple years ago Matt made the transition from ultra light weight US Kids clubs to a more traditional iron and woods setup. He improved greatly along with his swing speed. In December we had our annual visit with Matt’s club fitter Mark at MK Golf. Matt has grown a good 4 inches in the […]
We have been working on Matt’s ability to focus in on the areas of his game that he struggles with. Wouldn’t we all love if it was actually a technical swing issue. Nothing wrong in that department. Matt is at the age of burgeoning independence. We are trying to garner that want and turn it […]
Another STPGA event this time a Landa Park Golf Course in New Braunfels. Coming off a career best tying round last week in Austin, Matt was feeling good about his round. Started the day off with making a long birdie putt on #1 and all was good. (Last 5 competitive holes all birdies). He got […]
Matthew continues to work on his short game at every opportunity. Saturdays are reserved for it exclusively. Today he worked on his stroke for a bit and then did quite a bit of work on 15 footers and even more work on chipping from 10-30 yards. He kept his focus and got some good work […]
We have been practicing quite a bit on the course. Matt’s swing is just about where it needs to be now time to really work on situations on the course. Playing 3 or 4 holes can produce a wealth of teaching opportunities.

Matt having his weekly lesson with his coach, Brad Martin. Was a bit chilly outside today so Matt and Coach Martin hit the simulator and worked on ball striking and repeating a consistent setup. Hitting the green with 8 iron over and over, driving home that confidence and consistent swing.
