Matt working on his putting and shots around the green at the Quarry.
Matt continues his work on on the short game. Running through his drills.
Matt working on his short range chipping, keeping his hands out of the shot and trusting the club to do the work. He needed to land 200 in the 1 foot circle at 5 yards. The real challenge is keeping focus long enough to complete the drill.
Matt has been working on his lately, specifically playing more break and having the balls stop next to the hole. We place a gate (two tees to shrink the entry point) and then he has to place his coin at the top most point of the break so that if he hits his spot it […]
Saturday can only mean one thing, Short Game Saturday. Matt did some putting drills and then focused on 15-25 footers trying to make every putt and keep his total par are below. Historical statistics mandate that a player will have x% of 3 putts and x% of 1 putts when hitting the green. With 60 […]
Super cold out today so Matt was inside working on his swing and playing some holes on the simulator. He was recording his swing. When he was done I went and grabbed this to share.
Every couple of years we get Matt evaluated physically to make sure we are working on the correct things in regards to flexibility and strength conditioning. Today was his current evaluation. Previously we were made aware that his flexibility is not the best and he could be stronger. Not the wisest thing to have a […]
Another edition of Short Game Saturday is here. Seeing how Matt has a tournament at Fort Sam tomorrow and Fort Sam is 10 minutes from our house might as well do our drills from there. Matt got a good handle on his speed, then began 10 and 15 foot putting drills. 8 balls in a […]
Matt back at it for another session of Short Game Saturday. Working on alot of chipping, high, low and normal carries. He finished up the day having a putting contest with some of the College guys that were at the course practicing. I heard he got 2nd of of 4, not too shabby.
Matt had no scheduled practices / events for the day, so we decided to get his practice in at the site of his next tournament Sonterra South. It was a good opportunity for Matt to refine his yardage book and get a good feel of how fast the course is playing and enjoy a round […]
Had a weekend off between Thanksgiving and the Fall Championships. Worked on short game and took the family out to have a little competition at San Pedro Par 3. Matt’s mother has not played in about 2 years and I have not played in about a year. We loaded up 4 clubs each and played […]
Matt having a Saturday off from tournaments means that it is time for Short Game Saturday. Got the course early and worked on putting stroke, lag putting (30-50 feet) and birdie putts (18 feet). Spent about hour and half on putting. Then moved on to chipping 5, 10 and 15 footers. Finished up with some […]
Matt working on a Saturday without a tournament on his short game. Going through a myriad of drills to keep his stroke and confidence high. After the work was done challenged a few UIW players to a friendly putting contest. Matt garnered a 2nd place in the contest.
Matt working hard on his game and trying to get over some putting woes as of late. He allowed his stroke to become jabby and inconsistent. He spent the entire week working on his stroke and it is starting to look pretty good.
After it raining all week, we awoke Saturday to beautiful conditions and dry greens. Took the opportunity to get some putting drills in and continue the long and laborious road towards short game domination. Matt hit the putting arc from 9 feet and did 50 with and 50 without. (his putting has been on point […]
