Matt Hoemann-Washington Golf

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Senior Golfer Matt Hoemann from Washington High School. 

Matt tied for 2nd in the Class 4 District 4 Tournament at Wolf Hollow Tuesday afternoon. He carded a seven over 78 to lead the Jays to a 2nd place finish and a trip to the sectional.

Matt shot a two under 69 at the GAC Central Championships last week, leading the Blue Jays to the title and he was named the GAC Central Golfer of the Year.

Matt is strong tee to green, but he feels putting is the best part of his game. Matt spends countless hours on the practice green.

Matt was introduced to golf by his Grandmother when he was 8-years old and he liked it immediately. He was 13 when he played in his first competitive tournament.

Matt says one of the keys to being a good golfer is having a strong mental game and he has worked on his mental approach through high school.

Matt's hard work has paid off. He has received a scholarship to play golf at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, which has one of the best college golf programs in the state. Matt plans to Major in Business.
