Coach Phil Marr’s thoughts

“He’s definitely the top golfer in the county right now. We had every intention of him being our No. 1 player as soon as he swung the clubs for us. He’s definitely, right now, as good as any player that’s come out of the (Eastern Wisconsin Conference) in a number of years because of the way he can dominate a course.”

Matt’s thoughts

“I basically just take the same approach to everything, just do what i always do, look at it as just a round of golf.”
