While posting a previous lesson, i saw a photo of Matt’s swing and thought to myself not bad, which lead me to look into the vault and pull out some old videos and grab some screen shots of his previous years swing positions. 4 years old through this past summer. Enjoy.
Matt has been struggling a bit as of late with his lag putting, so today was a perfect time to get back to the drills that he used to do weekly. Grabbed a bucket of balls and put them out at 30 – 45 feet from a pin. Put down the 3 foot circle and […]
A tournament tomorrow to be held at Brackenridge Park. Matt and Shiv working on the putting green the evening before the event getting their speed down.
Matt doing a very “simple” drill that turns out to be difficult if ones process is not followed. Requires a level of focus that Matt did not knew existed. First time out took him about an hour to get 10 to drop in a row. Subsequent tries the learning curve kicked in. We did the […]
Matt working on his putting and chipping during another episode of Short Game Saturday. As the school year approaches and tournaments now shift to Saturday and Sunday, we will have to move SSS to the week somewhere.
Matthew working with his coach on ball striking. He is at the point in his swing were most things are technically correct, time for fine tuning. Doing drills to promote a good turn away from the ball which leads to everything else.
Matt continuing to work on his short game and putting. Saturday is short game day, all about touch and feel. What does it take to be comfortable from around the greens?, spending lots of time on them and self belief.
Matthew had his buddy Jackson over for our weekly installment of Saturday Short Game. The boys worked on putting, chipping and up / down drills for a couple hours. Then headed off the simulator to battle it out.
Matt played a practice round with a friend today at Republic Golf Club. Him and Jackson played for the ladies tees (Jackson moves back to white for par 3s) in a late Friday round. Both played pretty good, but could been better. Matt had 3 birdies and 3 doubles. They both finished up 3 over […]
Saturday has always been short game practice day. Today is no different. Matt doing short game drills and games designed to sharpen his touch and increase his confidence. He spends a good 3-4 hours in the morning before the heat working hard. Matthew’s dog Red came along to keep us company.
Matthew working on his short game. We have been doing alot of work to bolster his touch around the greens. Red, his dog, is not impressed 🙂
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 taking the opportunity of a Saturday with no tournament on the calendar to work on his short game. Putting in the work to keep the stroke solid. Putt for dough!
Matt working on his short game keeping it sharp. Putting drills are the call of the day.
Matthew hit some balls today and did some putting drills. He hooked up with Skyler for a 9 hole putting contest, loser does push ups. He lost by 2 :/
Being Easter weekend, there are no tournaments on the books, so back to our normal Saturday routine of short game practice. Matt hit the arc and 5 foot puts then proceeded to do 10 foot drills around the hole.
Matthew and his coach having a friendly wager on a 9 hole putting contest. Both using Matthews putter 🙂 Matt pulled this one out and left his coach to do push ups. I should of got a photo of that!
An unusual off day on the weekend. Went and practiced putting for about an hour. Matthew working on his tempo and keeping the shoulders moving. Lag putts from 30 feet.
Matt headed out at Republic Golf Course today with his coach for a couple of holes. Just a quick couple of holes where he as +1 and played pretty good.
