The Breakfast Ball.

I started this blog back in December of 2009 after a couple of golf outings with some long time friends where I was clearly the worst golfer in the group. Having a long history with the game, going back to when I was kid spending my afternoons on the course with my Grandfather, the way I played those rounds was outright embarrassing. I decided afterwards that if I ever wanted to compete with these guys there was some serious changes that had to take place. That was how it all started, a lackluster performance and a passion to play better. A lot like a real Breakfast Ball.

My vision for the blog was for it to be an on-line diary of my progress. A forum for me to make and keep notes along with bits of information that if I needed to, I could look back and reflect what had taken place. I wanted to be able to share with everyone the places I’ve played, the equipment I’m using, the people I’ve meet and also have a place where people who love this game feel like they can engage in conversation about golf and not feel intimidated.

The Breakfast Ball has evolved way beyond my expectations and I couldn’t be happier. My vision still remains the same but as I have evolved as a player the blog has evolved as well. I’ve made some amazing connections in the golfing world. My writing skills have improved vastly when you compare it to when I started this blog and the content, I think, is a great resource for not only players that are just starting out but also the season veterans who just might want to relax and read some stories about golf.

Inside the pages of The Breakfast Ball you’ll find articles and stories of my life as it pertains to the game of golf. You’ll meet some of my closest friends and I’ll share with you some of my highest highs and some of my lowest lows (there’s a lot of them) when it comes to my golf game. I’ve even been known to throw out a good rant every now and then just to mix it up some.

For the main part though my goal has been and will always be to become a better player and I think I’m getting there. You’ll just have to read about it and see if you agree with me!

I hope you enjoy reading through the pages of The Breakfast Ball and feel free to leave a comment or participate in any of the discussions that take place. The more the merrier!

Thanks,

Mathew

An Excerpt from one of my most favorite posts:

Kenwol Tour Profile Sock Review 5/24/2012

“So how in the heck does that relate to a sock review? Well, it’s not often that you’re completely shocked by something. Of course there are things you see on the internet and stories you read about in the paper that shock you but on a personal level it doesn’t happen as often as you think, but it is exactly what happened when I put on my new Kentwool socks for the first time.

First impressions are VERY important and my first impression of the sock when I took it out of the package was a good one. You can tell right away that this isn’t your typical run of the mill foot coat. Heavy, durable and wow these things are going to make my feet feel like they’re in an oven.  Those were just some of the thoughts that were running though my head. Any negativity I had towards the sock (mainly that my poor little piggies were going to boil in them) went away though as soon as the fabric touched my skin.”

    Just wanted to say from one blogger to another that I really like the design of your site. Very organized and accessible. Glad this going so well for you. You’ve been at it about 4 years more than I have so I admire all you’ve accomplished here.

    Hit ‘em straight.

    Hi Matthew

    I am in Vegas next week playing some golf.

    I played Coyote Springs a couple of years ago and LOVED it but have heard some bad things about its conditioning recently, particularly the greens.

    Have you heard anything on its current state of play?

    thanks dude.

    Chris

      I know Wolf Creek out in Mesquite (not too far from Coyote Springs) had to shut down and redo their greens but I haven’t heard any thing like that in regards to Coyote Springs. I’ll reach out to some people I know and see if there is any truth to the rumor. You might want to give them a call though, they have always been very helpful when I’ve called out there inquiring about the conditions.
