Matthew is starting to get the sequence going and his tempo is improving. We are still working increasing his distance constantly. He is starting to get it. There was more to this lesson but I failed to setup the camera for the first half.
Not the best he could do but it is what he scored on Sunday during his 9 hole playing round. I believe it is the first time that he has played 9 holes with his grandfather. It is also the first time that he has beat his grandfather in scoring. Obviously they were not playing […]
Matt still doing his 100 3 foot putts everyday. Today we did 20 5 footers and then 100 3 footers. Tough for him to concentrate for that long, but again we are building up his resistance to loosing concentration and practicing his stroke. Probably more importantly he is gaining confidence and seeing that a 3 […]
Matthew working with Coach Martin on a good setup and equally good turn back and through while staying in posture. It seems as if it’s the same lesson over and over but you can not move on until you have the base. He is getting better. Couldn’t record the whole lesson it has been over […]
We are trying to squeeze in a few more sessions a month for Matt to spend swing time with his coach. Brad came by during his Saturday morning short game practice to work on this posture and staying down through the shot. Matt hit some really good shots when he pulled it all together. Still […]
Brad worked today on his setup and him turning back without dipping. We are still trying to get him to take it back on plane so that he can come down on plane.
We worked today on 1 putting from 10-30 feet, the concept really not only getting into the “red circle” but trying to hit our target, even at the expense of the follow up putt. Used a turned over range bucket as the target. We also did some up and down practice. Gotta be able to make […]
Matt has been trying to make 100 3 foot putts in a row. Today he was definitely the most exciting attempt at the goal. Footage is from about halfway through.
Matt had has weekly lesson with Coach Martin. He worked on staying connected and making a complete turn back.
Matt played in his final tournament of the summer, held at Brackenridge Park Golf Course in downtown San Antonio. We have still been struggling with his arm swings and working on our short game. There were many kids in his division today but he managed to hang on to win with a score of 25. […]
Working with Matt on making 2 putts every time. Letting him get some feel and making him “make” his lag putts. He’s starting to learn about confidence and what it takes to make putts and handle nerves. Making sure to redirect him to his setup each time doubt creeps in.
Matthew played again today in the STPGA 5 hole modified tournament held at Sonterra Country Club (North Course). The North Course is pretty challenging course with mostly raised green complexes which are fairly fast. The STPGA was running 30 minutes behind on tee times today, so the kids were getting anxious. Matthew is going through […]
Matthew is still working on his setup and stroke. More importantly he is learning how to concentrate for extended periods. Not easy for a 7 year old.
Matthew had his lesson today. Working on swing sequence and making a complete turn back and through.
Matthew played in another 5 hold modified event today held at Dominion Country Club. He struggled at bit with his putting and ball striking. He hit some really good putts and some really good shots, but some that were just flat out bad.
We worked for a good 2 hours on chipping today. Focusing on setup, rotation and distance control. Enjoy
Coach Martin had Matthew working on his setup and takeaway.
Matt played in the finals of City Match Play Championships today. He had a pretty good day and held off his opponent to take first place 4 &3. He lost the first hole by chunking his tee shot then having to take a unplayable on his second shot. He conceded hole. He proceeded to take […]
Matt is playing in the 2014 San Antonio Junior Match Play Championships, held at Riverside Golf Course. The first day was a qualifying day, in which he did qualify. He hit some good shots but his putting was just not there with 4 3-putts and 1 4-putt. Even with the not so good putting he […]
