To Matt Kuchar, golf means more than the leader board, the world rankings. It goes beyond the trophies and the recognition. Golf—his passion and profession—is fueled by his unwavering goal to be a cut above the rest. To achieve this, Matt embraces everything from technology to psychology to improve his game. His coach uses a golf simulator to help him improve his swing. His weekly consultation with a psychologist helps him take what he’s learned the previous week and apply it to his next game. It’s all about making strides every day, week, and year, in an effort to become one of the world’s best.
