Matt talking about his round at River Crossing.
Matting playing in the 3rd US Kids event of the spring, this time at River Crossing. Coming off a win at Hyatt last week hoping to keep it rolling. He started well with even par through 5 holes with a birdie and a bogey, looking like all is good. Takes another bogey on 6 and the […]
Matt has been keeping a tournament journal on paper for over a year now. It is a space that allows him to express his feelings about his round and what he would like to do better. After his latest tournament, I reminded him to input his statistics and do his journal and it occured to me […]
The second US Kids event of the spring is upon us. He is now playing from the ladies tees and it looks as if we have done what needed to be done in regards to length before he moved back. He seems to be on par or longer than most of his competitors off the […]
Matt playing in another STPGA event, this time in Austin at Onion Creek. Coming off a disappointing round yesterday at Sonterra, he knew what he needed to do mentally. Had a mental lapse on #3 and pulled two tee shots out of bounds to take a 10 on the hole. We had a quick talk […]
Matt starting out a new US Kids season this time from the Ladies Tee boxes. He has been playing well and was full of confidence going into the round. He started the round with a birdie on #1, bogey on #2 and double on #3. He is still allowing 1 shots’ outcome to affect 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 […]
Matt back at with another STPGA even in Round Rock Texas. Star Ranch was the host site and we took the family truckster up north. This is the 2nd tournament of the 2017 Spring season. His first tournament he placed 3rd with a bad putting day. We worked hard on the putting over the next […]
Another Saturday and another edition of Short Game Saturday. Was cold and drizzling this morning, but as usual rain or shine, Matt was out working on his short game. Alot of putting drills today and working on his 15 foot birdie putts.
2017 Season Opener for the STPGA. Were at Golf Club of Texas and all the big guns from San Antonio and Austin are present. Winds blowing at 20 gusting to 45. Matt in the past month, has gotten new clubs and been working hard to get acclimated to them. The swing is looking pretty good […]
Day 1 of the 2016 STPGA Fall Championships from Houston, TX at Gleannloch Pines Golf Club. We made the trip down yesterday to get a practice round in and went over the details of the course. Pretty straight forward, nothing complicated. Up Saturday morning and off to the course and Day 1. Started the day […]
Matt making another trip up to Austin to play in a US Kids event held at Lake Cliff golf course. Swing and short game are in good shape. Have been working on alignment, targeting and his mental game. He has struggled over the past year on his mental game and dealing with approach of not […]
Back again in a STPGA event at Northern Hills Golf Course. After struggling yesterday at Fort Sam, we talked quite a bit about the confidence needed to be able to compete in tournaments. He understands the concept but can not yet grasp the reality of it. He struggled again today with focus and confidence. Still […]
Matthew playing in another US Kids event this time held at Fort Sam Golf Club. Matt has been working hard on his short game and struggling a bit with his alignment and aiming on his long game. The struggles continued today, which led to a loss in confidence and a worried mental state that as […]
Matt playing in another STPGA local tournament this time held at Hyatt Hill Country Resort. He has been playing pretty good as of late. Were still in the stage of cutting down on the mental mistakes, but the swing is good (for the most part) and putting is coming along. He stammered along the way […]
Every open Saturday we have we dedicate the practice to the short game. This Saturday was no different. We headed out to Hyatt Hill Country (site of his tournament tomorrow) to work on putting and chipping. Got some good work in on putting and some solid understanding and work in on his chipping. As usual […]
Matt having his weekly lesson, working yet again on ball striking and getting the club back on plane. He has a habit of getting quick on the take away and inside. This causes him to re-route the club at the top adding to inconsistency in the swing.
Matt back in action playing in a STPGA sponsored event at Mission Del Lago. Coming off a 5 over par round yesterday, he had quite a bit to think about. On a whole today his mentally was markedly improved. He made a few technical mistakes but on the whole played solid and put a even […]
Matthew competing in another US Kids event, this time at River Crossing. The season is winding down and Matt has been working as hard as he ever has since the beginning of summer. It is all up to his mental game now as his swing and short game are pretty good. Can he make mistakes […]
