Matthew had his weekly lesson today. Brad really wants to work on Matt’s position at the top and release of the club. Still working to get more consistent across the board, which will in turn increase confidence. Once he has those there will be no stopping him.
Matthew has been having some issues with his putter as of late. We (his coach and I) were concerned that he was taking a step back, so we decided to call in the big gun. We have known Bryan Gathright for some time, Brad (Matt’s swing coach) has known Bryan forever. I had Matt read […]
Matthew had his weekly formal lesson today. He worked with his coach on ball striking and alignment. This is where we are at with his swing, clean up, better positions. There is not much mechanically wrong with it. Lots of repetition to come over the years, the base has to be solid.
Matthew working with his swing coach on his setup and tempo. I was down the line helping others, but the shots i saw looked pretty good. I don’t know if they discussed anything or he just happened to have everything working but he is hitting the ball well. Lets hope he can keep it up.
Matthew had his weekly lesson with his swing coach today. They mainly worked on the full swing and keeping his head still throughout the swing. When he doesn’t setup correctly he is more prone to dipping on the takeaway thus move the head horizontally leading to poor ball striking. He is aware of the issue […]
Matthew continues work on his take away and getting the club into the slot during the initial stages of the downswing. There are a combination of factors that prevent this from happening as it should mostly related to grip pressure, pausing at the top and getting all the way back. We lost sound on this […]
Matthew had his weekly lesson today. We are still working on the downward motion and swinging towards the target. As I said last week it seems to be getting better and more consistent. Will it hold up under tournament conditions, we shall see Sunday. When he does what he needs to there is no 8 […]

Matthew had his weekly lesson. They worked almost exclusively on Matthew keeping his left heel on the ground throughout the swing. On occasion he moves towards the ball vs. towards the left and thus gets up on his toes to increase the distance from the ball in order for the club to make contact with […]
Matthew working with his coach on tempo and keeping his heels on the ground during the forward transition. Has to bump more horizontal. It is the small things now that will lead to more consistency. Right now he sits at about 2 out of 3 shots good, still 1 out of 3 there is a […]
Matthew once again had his weekly lesson. Forgot the video camera, but snapped this shot as Matt and his coach worked on keeping his feet grounded through out the swing.
Matthew worked with Coach Martin on his swing today, specifically on allowing the club to fall vs. pulling it down to the ball. Continuing his quest to become a better ball striker.

Matthew had his weekly lesson this time at the First Tee of San Antonio. Home course was under water from the recent heavy rains.
