"Matt Smith is one of the best people I have met in my life. For only playing golf for 3 years he has completely transformed my game. I went from shooting 100 to shooting 74 in 3 years. Not only has he transformed my golf game but my mental game. He has taught me how to think and act to be successful. But my favorite part about Matt is that he is a great guy, that is relatable and very easy to talk to. He will guide you, while being one of your best friends."
