What up with Matthew Wolff?


Recommended Posts

Watching the Zurich Classic and he just shanked his 2nd tee shot in as many days into the woods. His approach shots are all over the place and the commentators continually suggest he take some time off. Ever since his 2nd place finish at the US Open, he's hasn't been himself. 

 

Did he get married? Has he, unbeknownst to the blood thirsty golf press, become a baby daddy? Is it his weird swing? What up with Wolff?

This is what people don't understand about depression.    Imagine you have a job that is intellectually fulfilling and pays very well. You have a good marriage. Three kids who are getting al

An hour commute each way to a normal office job would probably cheer him up then

I don't know what up with Matt, but I bet Tony Romo or a random scratch golfer could beat him right now.  Possibly even Lydia Ko.

His swing never looked to me like it would hold up under pressure.

Hand injury plus he could be having some off the course issues.  Looks like he changed his equipment as well.  No longer TP in his driver now HD.

Been wondering this for awhile too... I think it's especially jarring because he seemed so full of enjoyment when he was finishing college and came out on tour, but now looks completely disinterested and dejected on the course. I watched his shots from the round where he got DQ'd from the Masters before the green coats took them down and it was particularly striking how much he did not want to be on the golf course. In the Masters.

 

I really like his style of golf and his personality, and I hope he can figure out whatever is plaguing him, but I think it's one of the more interesting stories in golf right now too that no one seems to be talking about.

 

Edit: I remembered seeing this image of him behind the 11th green at Augusta and thought it painted a pretty sad picture.

Yeh whatever it is I sure hope he figures it out. Golf needs more unique swings like his to show everyone you don't have to have the "PGA Tour Classic" swing to be successful.

Young. Timing-based swing. Injuries. Hanging with the big boys in Jupiter. Expectations. 

 

 

Hopefully he doesnt go the way of Smylie and completely lose it. I like Wolff.

I read a recent article that he was really struggling with feeling lonely and the difficulties of being on tour. He was not adjusting well. His mother said that’s why he bought a new home near his college alma mater so that he could hang out with other college guys. Sounds like a lot of off the course issues.

People talking about his swing like it's full of quirks that make it destined to fall apart seem so ignorant to me. 

 

The only difference is that he's removed the variable of a wrist c0ck. He never has to worry about his first move because his wrists don't move. It's the trigger move that makes it look like there's loads of madness going on, but from transition he looks incredible.

His swing looks different but he 10,000x better than anyone here ... I wonder how your move would hold up under 'pressure'

 

He said he going through some mental issues and his wrist is bugging him 

 

I mean he stripes it on the range and goes out hits all over the map

The US Open loss and then MC the Masters (after shooting -4 on his front 9) a month later did a number 

 

Though I mean he is 21-22 years old ... he has tons of time

 

JT has twos wins at this point in his career (14 career wins, 1 major)

Daniel Berger had one or two at this point in his career (4 career wins)

DJ didn't win his first event until he as 24-25 years old (24 career wins, 2 majors)

Jason Dufner was 34 when he won his first PGA Tour event (5 career wins, 1 major)
