Day 2 of the Fall STPGA Junior Tour Championships. Matt posted an 81 on day 1, a few off of his goal and average, but not horrible by any stretch. We spoke about what happened in Day 1 and reviewed his notes. He as poised to do better in the second round. Morning started out […]
The Fall STPGA Championships are here and Matt qualified through play for the past 3 months. We moved Matt up early to this division (11-12 year olds, he was 10) for the mere fact that the previous division was not challenging enough and we felt that he was wasting time. Matt performed well throughout the […]
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 playing in the final STPGA regular season event of the year. He has concentrated on the STPGA Junior Tour events this season and as a result is leading the 11-12 year old division as a 10 year old. The tournament this week was in Austin at Lakeway Live Oak, a difficult track, that requires […]
Matt back at it again in a STPGA event at Sonterra County Club (South Course). He was originally paired as a threesome, but there was a withdraw which left Matt’s buddy Shiv without a playing partner. We hung back and played with Shiv. The weather was not fun and either drizzled or rained for most […]
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 has an annual fitting to insure that his clubs are performing they way we want and to schedule any changes necessary during the winter off season. MK Golf Technologies is selected yearly as a Top 100 club fitter and Matt has been with them for the past 3 years. Mark and Kirk have always made […]

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.
Landa Park is up today with beautiful weather. A full field of 90 juniors, 11 of which are in Matt’s division. Matt’s short game continuing to struggle. 11% up and down and only 1 putt made inside of 5 feet. Difficult to play tournament golf with those stats. We know what will be worked on […]
We had been scheduled to play the STPGA Alice tournament last month, but due to a hurricane it was rescheduled to today. Got up early and headed down, was 40 degrees and wind blowing at the start time. Played the front fairly well with no warm up (Alice does not have a range) had a […]
