After checking the statistics of 2016 Starburst Junior Classic, we found that his short game was the culprit, in particularly his chipping. Brad got to work immediately to remedy the problem. Matt worked hard today for 2 hours on his chipping and up / down drills.
Matthew’s game is getting to the point where there is not much to fix technically. Sure there are things that need to be improved, but nothing big. Gaining confidence in his skill sets though, is one area where alot of improvement can be made. We design the drills that he does based on building this […]

Matthew working on the issues that plagued him during the tournament yesterday. He was taking his hands a bit inside, his coach working on them going back down the line a bit more and him using his chest more effectively. Was a quiet Sunday evening on the range, good time to get some work in.
Matthew taking his weekly lesson. Working his back swing plane. He seems to be concentrating more as of late, a bit more maturity when on the course. We shall see.
