Matthew played another US Kids event today at River Crossing, in Spring Branch, TX. He was the only 7 year old in the field so the director pulled a 8 year old for him to play with. It was cold and drizzling all day. Matt mustered up a 37, 1 over par with 4 Birdies, […]
Matt has been working on his game. Chipping and putting are far above average, full swing is coming along. Makes it hard when hes playing 300 yard par 4s, while only hitting his driver on a good strike 150. Still placing in the tourney with the length is promising.
Matt worked on his setup and putting stroke today. Just reviewing the basics and trying to get his groove back.
Matthew had his weekly lesson with Coach Martin today. They worked on his balance and getting to his left side better. They did quite a bit of work on “walking through” the shot.

Matt was out playing another STPGA event, this time at River Crossing. There were 12 entries in the 6-9 year old (modified 9) division. The STPGA had the course set up long and when I say long I mean there were a couple par 4s at about 300 yards. None of us could understand it […]
Matt continues to work on setup, distance from the ball, balance and keeping his head still. It looks as if he is making some improvements and starting to “feel” what a good setup is.
Matt continues to work on his setup and self adjustment to make putts and chips. Trying to teach him to setup on his own and be responsible for his own setup.

Matthew played in another USKids event today held at Fair Oaks Country Club. It was very wet and he didn’t get a proper warm up seeing how the range was closed due to weather. We did the best we could under the conditions. Matt has been struggling with keeping his head centered during his swing […]
Matt still working on putting and chipping.
Brad worked with Matthew on ball striking again today since he was going to be out of town on his usual Saturday. Matt did pretty good and make 14 good swings in a row, his best ever.
Matt still working on his setup and his swing mechanics. Trying hard not to use his arms, but rely on his lower body for power. He is also learning discipline and not to talk back as evident of the running and pushups 🙂 We worked on Matt hitting irons from a tee and Coach Brad […]
Matt was back at Olmos Park today playing in the STPGA 9 hole modified division. As you remember he was moved into the division by the STPGA. He had a rough day of today not hitting the ball consistently at all. He left a lot of strokes out there today and came away with a […]
