Matt back at it again in a US Kids event held at Cedar Creek Golf Club. The course is known for its uneven lies and ability to make good shots end up down right bad. Complete placement course. We came out yesterday and got the green speed under control and looked at the tee shots […]

Matt working with his coach today, mostly on setup and alignment. Not a whole lot wrong in this regard. But we constantly have to check the procedure and the outcome of the setup to stay on track.
