It’s high noon,,,

Natasha Mack’s off season training is a family affair:

Cowgirl Basketball’s Natasha Mack’s is back home in east Texas and is using this time to train for next season despite being stuck at home. And her brother has decided to join in on the fun.

“Honestly it’s been hell and hot water, I’m not even going to lie to you it’s been hard but he pushes me to be the best that I can be, no slack,” said Mack.

“This is every day, this is every day, we’re going to cause beef, if she ain’t mad at me, then I ain’t getting in that work, honestly,” said Lee.

While the process isn’t always pleasant, through the sweat and the exhaustion, she knows he’s always in her corner.

“It honestly means a lot, for somebody to see my potential more than I can see it you know, see it through somebody else’s eyes, so it means a lot to me,” said Mack. {KETK}

Matthew Wolff could have an slight advantage on Sunday:

During the charity skins tournament set to take place at Seminole golf course on Sunday, Matthew Wolff may have on upper hand on his competition. He is the least far removed from carrying his own bag.

While Tour veterans are accustomed to having someone else do the heavy lifting inside the ropes, Wolff isn’t that far removed from carrying his own clubs. Less than a year ago he was starring for Oklahoma State in the NCAA Division I championship at The Blessings Golf Course in Arkansas.

“It was one of the hilliest courses I’ve ever walked,” Wolff said Thursday on a media conference call. “So I mean, it’s been definitely nice having a caddie carrying my bag, but with the carry bag it shouldn’t be too hard. Seminole is a pretty easy walk. {GolfChannel.com}
