Matt does not believe in filling your head with 100 things to do...he provides a step & drill per lesson to re-orient your swing step-by-step to a place where (a) you're loving the game more (b) hitting ball further / more consistently (c) doing way less harm to your body. My 16 year old son and I are both loving the game and our lessons with Matt (but don't tell anyone....he gets booked up fast!)

And shots with appropriate rationale. He is a fun teacher who related the game with real life examples. I enrolled myself as a beginner and learnt many concepts of game.

Matt has an amazing ability to combine technical expertise with feel and psychology. I'd highly recommend lessons with him. He's engaging, bright, and analytical. For me, lessons with him are practically a therapy session too!

Thanks, Matt.

Over the course of 3+ years he has taken me from a ~20 index to an 8. I look forward to many more years with him.
