About Matt

Matt grew up in Spokane, WA with his dad and grandparents – a family of bowlers. He went to college at the University of Idaho for the Professional Golf Management Program to become a professional golfer.

“My grandfather is the reason that I took up golf. In my younger years I played club soccer and I wasn’t the best. When he took me to the driving range on the first day, I was always able to hit a golf ball. The love that it gave me is the reason I became a teacher/coach – I want to share this experience with everyone.”

His joy for golf comes from seeing the excitement of a student hitting a shot and knowing that they can do it. That’s why he became a member of the PGA of America.

“I don’t want you to swing like the golfers on TV because we all have different body types and abilities. Let’s build a relationship and a game plan with your golf game because golf can be endlessly complicated. I like to break the game down into big picture components, so it is easy to grasp and implement it and BREAK YOUR GOALS!”
