”It’s been a successful couple of weeks for me in the last events of the fall, recording back to back best finishes of my college career. It has taken a lot of work over time, but I can see that my technique is improving and I am happy that my work is getting rewarded with some good results on the course. Driver has steadily improved over the course of the semester with my misses getting smaller and giving me more opportunities to score. Last week was a tough golf course with good driving and long irons needed in crosswinds and I am pleased that my game held up. Excited for the progress made so far and looking forward now to couple of months of work to get ready for the spring semester and further improvement.” says Mattias.
