Welcome and thanks for checking out our site.

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 of the game, going back to when I was a kid spending my afternoons on the course with my Grandfather, the way I played those rounds was outright embarrassing. I decided afterward that if I ever wanted to compete with these guys, some serious changes had to take place. That was how it all started, lackluster performance and a passion for playing better. A lot like a real Breakfast Ball.

My vision for the blog was for it to be an online 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 individuals 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 remains the same, but as I have grown as a player, the blog has changed as well. I’ve made some amazing connections in the golfing world. My writing skills had improved 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.

What you’ll find on the pages of The Breakfast Ball?

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 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 for checking us out and enjoy the blog!

    They say golf is 90% mental and tend to agree with this statement ( as long as you have mastered the fundamentals of the golf swing).
    With this in mind, have you ever reviewed any mental programing software?
    And what are your views on this subject?

    Hey Matt:

    just reading over your blog, and found it very interesting. Also, noticed the poker chip on your page, if you’re interested in a reorder anytime soon let me know as we have quite a variety of chip colors to choose from.

    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.

      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.

      Just launched my golf blog yesterday! I’ve looked at numerous golf blogs and yours is great. Like your blog, I don’t want to look like all the rest. The way you live golf shows on this blog. It’s not the same ol’ golf blog we find out there. Hope I can do the same.
