“Hungry like the Wolff”

The Simi Valley Acorn has a profile on Matthew Wolff today, with plenty of word-play with his last name.

Is anybody surprised by the 20-year-old’s meteoric rise in golf? No way.

From a fist-pumping 6-year-old to CIF State champion to collegiate national champion to 3M Open champion as a PGA rookie, Wolff continues to swing—with that same quirky hitch—his way to the top of leaderboards.

“I’m not shocked at all,” said Spencer Soosman, Wolff’s former Westlake teammate and a senior for the University of Texas men’s golf team. “What left me speechless was how everything went down.

“ It’s almost like when Tiger came out and said, ‘Hello, world.’”

Tiger Woods famously dropped that line back in 1996— before Wolff was born.

It’s 2019, and it’s Wolff’s world now. Simi Valley Acorn

Win with Discipline

Discipline is Cowboy Football’s mantra this year.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has been preaching the same message to his football team the entire offseason, and the entire coaching staff doubled down on that message Thursday during practice without saying a word.

The first 20 minutes was open to the media, and the coaching attire left no doubt about what the focus is this season. Every member of the OSU coaching staff sported an orange, gray or white shirt that said “Win with discipline.”

Gundy has taken responsibility for last year’s lack of discipline on many occasions this summer, but it is obvious he is committed to creating better habits for this year’s group.

“It’s an important part of what we do,” Gundy said after practice. “That’s where I felt like I was deficient, which circles down to the coaches and the players, and then we become an undisciplined football team. That’s simply not controlling what we can control.” Tulsa World
