Hi everyone, I am new to this board but from some encouragement from others I thought I would share what the journey I am on is like.  There seems to be a good amount of interest in following young pro golfers such as @300_yards current thread in Asia..

Some of you  may have seen the Canadian tour thread over the summer, my mom who is @Agatha on here was active on there.

Anyway a bit about my background, I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a professional golfer, it was my dream so set my goals early and worked to achieve them.  I was fortunate enough to get to play D1 golf at UC Davis where I was able to not only get my degree in Economics but also play some amazing courses, and had 4 years to develop my game at a high level.  Because of a decent amount of success in college and as an amateur I was able to get a contract with Nike.  Nike clubs and gear has become top of line in the past few years and they treat all of the players on staff great.  I can go into specifics later on the equipment I play.   I have had the same swing coach since freshman year of high school, his name is Don Parsons, he is in Goleta and is a great instructor.  He was on Morning drive this week as he is a lead instructor as well with the golf channel academy.

First Year as a Pro: Aug '14 to Aug '15:

I decided to play high level amateur golf the summer after senior year at Davis and turned pro in August of 2014.  I played one tournament before web.com Q school that year.  Q school I breezed thru pre qual and eked thru stage 1, stage 2 was where I got knocked out.    I played some mini tour events to work on my game and actually won a decent amount of money so that was nice.  I went to Argentina and did Latin American Q school but came up short.  So back to more mini tour stuff for awhile.  In spring I went thru Canadian tour Q school (now called the MacKenzie tour) and was successful in getting my card.  I spent the summer on the tour and played all the events but 1.   I guess I had an okay rookie year but I missed keeping my card by $900 Canadian which was frustrating. I missed 4 cuts by 1 stroke, that was rough.


So back to web.com Q school in Sept..  I did not have to pre qual this year and made it all the way Q School Finals in Florida.  I did not have my A game at finals and finished T110 out of the 156.

I can post more about what conditional status really means if there is interest in knowing.

My plan is to continue to compete on some of the mini tour events as well as try to Monday for Northern Trust and I plan to go back to Louisiana for a web.com Monday qualifier.    I am signed up for Canadian Q school again and that will take place in April.  

If anyone has any questions I would be happy to answer and if there is interest I will come on here and post updates as well.

i would bet that lots of folks on here want to know about the equipment and clothes you get while on contract. Do you have a catalog to thumb through and choose what you want? If you need anything, do you call and its sent to you directly? If you want something extra to test out, can you call out of the blue and get whatever you want? This is probably available to the upper level staff members, didn't know if anyone under contract has free reign to get whatever whenever. thanks.

random questions I know, but the thought of having a garage full of gear/clothes/shoes is pretty cool.

Welcome to the board Matthew :)

Thank You for doing this!!

I hope that you enjoy this as much as we will :)

You're an amazing Young Man  with an amazing  core circle around you and I think that you know my thoughts on both you and your Mother.

She's an incredible Lady, and I count her as one of my closest friends & confidants, as she is the only female outside of Madison(my FiancÚ), my Mother and Sis that I confide in, lol.

She is very kind & tolerant of my sometimes maniac medicated rants & ramblings, haha :)

You've been in my Thoughts and Prayers as you've travelled across South & Latin America, Canada and here at home and there is absolutely zero doubt in my mind that you will achieve you goals and dreams!!!

That 3i that you hit in Canada and the holes that followed that took you from a sure ticket out of town to the door step, well, there aren't many Players on the face of this earth, regardless of Tour or name, that could have hit that shot or have the mental strength and intestinal fortitude to turn a round and tourney around like you came one shot from doing!

You're a Special Player, a Better Person and you're at the door~

Yes there have been obstacles and road blocks, however as long as you learn from them, and continue to make your weaknesses your strengths and maintain your focus there's not a doubt in my mind that you're going to kick that Son of a B**** in, and sooner rather than later!!!

Thanks again for takin us along for the ride~

And yes, I Love the User Name, lol :)

God Bless Bro :)

Fairways & Greens, Pins & Cups 4ever My Friend,
Richard

I had some friends after college that tried the mini tours and I know that it's a lonely and frustrating life.  Funny story, one guy I used to work with made it to the final stage of Q school and was 2 strokes from getting his card.  He was so devastated that he gave up his dream completely and started working at a bank.  Several months later, his bosses asked him if he golfed.  He said yes.  They asked him if he was good.  He said he was okay.  He went out with his bosses and shot a 65.  He was promoted shortly after, haha.  I love that story.

Welcome to the board. Glad you can enlighten us about TOUR life.

You have come a long way, but did it in baby steps. Continue with the baby steps and I (we) have no doubt that you will kick the door down.

Thanks for taking us along for the ride. I think that it will be a lot of fun.

 The General, on 11 February 2016 - 04:14 PM, said:

i would bet that lots of folks on here want to know about the equipment and clothes you get while on contract. Do you have a catalog to thumb through and choose what you want? If you need anything, do you call and its sent to you directly? If you want something extra to test out, can you call out of the blue and get whatever you want? This is probably available to the upper level staff members, didn't know if anyone under contract has free reign to get whatever whenever. thanks.

random questions I know, but the thought of having a garage full of gear/clothes/shoes is pretty cool.
I second this. Love knowing these type of things.
