About Matthew

Date of Birth: 10th September 1989 Most memorable moment: There have been a few but winning the 2006 World Junior Championship, Playing with Greg Norman in the 2006 Australian Open and being named in the 2009 All American Team stand out.

Adjusting to being on the road week in and week out and establishing what works best for me in regards to scheduling both on and off the golf course. Who has been your biggest influence in your development as a golfer and a person? As a golfer it is a combination of people but most notably my parents who have supported me unconditionally since I began playing, Barry Bent who has coached me from the very beginning, and the Jack Newton Foundation where I gained valuable experience at all levels and met Lyn Whitehouse. Then of course the support of Golf Australia and the Kinghorn family – without which I would not have been able to achieve what I have so far. As a person definitely my parents with a few good advisors and &aposlife coaches&apos in Barry Bent and Lyn Whitehouse.
