Matthew having his weekly lesson. His coach making a few minor changes to his setup routine to keep his putter closer to the ground through impact.

Matthew trying to improve on his Day 1 score of 83 at the 2016 STPGA summer preview. In round 1 he continued to lack confidence and would continually inject himself into the ball striking process. As a result the shots are never pure and rarely what you want them to be. We spoke in depth […]
Matthew playing in the STPGA Summer Preview a 2 day event held in Victoria, Texas. Last week we were at the Oklahoma Invitational and Matt was working on his mental game. We continue the process and the work. He continued to have difficulty finishing his swing with out intervening in the process. The fear of […]
Matthew had his weekly lesson today and after watching his tournament footage from the previous weekend, his coach was not happy with his putting pre-shot routine. He gave Matt some very specific steps and had him drill it over and over. We will see if it sticks, it can only benefit his putting to have […]
Day 2 of the Oklahoma Invitational in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After a disappointing day 1, we had plenty of talk with Matt in regards to his mental game and confidence level. Particularly about his expectation level. He really loves to beat himself up when not make whatever he considers to be a good shot, whether or […]

After having a rough day in his opening round, Matt was again composed and ready to perform on day 2. The weather has shifted and the wind is blowing 20-30 and there are rolling storms. Matt seemed to play better, at least emotionally there were several bouts of expectation level issues, but not the “beating […]
Matt playing in another US Kids regional event. Matt’s game is coming along, mostly working on the mental / emotional side of the game. How long can he focus, can he recover from bad shots, etc. His good shots are as good as any, although Golf is all about your misses and what you can […]
Matthew earned his way to another Texas Open regional at Horseshoe Bay (Apple Rock). Headed up for the trip on Friday to have a practice round with Shiv and Aadi. Same course as last year but adding an additional 9 that Matt has never seen.

Another day, another STPGA event. This time it is Riverside and very close to home. Trying to build from yesterday’s score of 36, even par in Corpus, had plenty of talking and exploring why, what and how anything was different yesterday from previous weeks. We had some rough warm up, frustration on his part, but […]
There was a STPGA even down in Corpus on a off day here in San Antonio. We headed down to do some damage. Were there in plenty of time, had some lunch and warmed up. The wind started blowing (this is the gulf) and we got going. Matt played well and kept his emotions in […]
