Matthew playing in an STPGA event held at River Crossing Golf Club. Matt made some mental mistakes today and let some opportunities slip by.

Another day another STPGA event. This time at Lakecliff Country Club near Austin. We are working to put him in as many competitive environments as we can as he works through his anxiety. He did better today posting a 1 over par 37, but the course was short and he could of easily put up […]
Matthew played in another STPGA event held at Sonterra today. He didn’t have anything going today and started the day with a 9 on the first hole. Set the tone for the entire afternoon and he posted a 53. One to use for practice motivation for sure.

Matthew has been playing mostly U.S. Kids tournaments this year and we were gone for most of the summer to the Philippines. But none the less Matt received a invite to the STPGA Fall Championships, having only played 4 events. 2 1st place, a 2nd place and a 5th place, I guess is enough.

As your aware from previous updates, Matt has been struggling with some swing issues over the past 3 weeks, which have been improving each day.
