Matt has been working hard for the past week in preparation for the Texas Open and the Tour Championships this month. He is starting to realize that there is more than just swinging the club correctly and there is a whole new world of ball striking to be discovered.
Matt will be playing here at Cedar Creek tomorrow. Brought him by to work on his putting speed and to see the all important tee shots on the course.

In the past 4-5 tournaments Matt has been struggling with leaving himself long 2nd putts. Were talking 3-4 footers even from short distances. Not sure if it is nerves or just lack of focus. So this week we have been working on leaving putts inside a 1 foot circle. To add the the difficulty they […]
