Matthias Schwab is not only an internationally successful golf professional but also an avowed nature lover. This is the ideal combination to familiarise oneself with the natural paradise of Upper Styria on various levels. On the course, Matthias will give you valuable tips on technique. Tee off, pitch, chip or praise: everything you need to know about the perfect swing. He will also share mental tricks that can be used to master difficult situations during the game. Coolness is one of the strengths of a top athlete - in addition to determination and consistency.
For more than 15 years, Matthias worked hard to achieve his dream of becoming a professional golfer. After an impressive amateur career and four years of college golf at the renowned Vanderbilt University in the US, he made the leap to a professional career in 2017. He quickly proved himself as a European Tour player.
He also draws his mental strength from his connection with nature - whether it is skiing, mountain biking or hiking. One of his favorite tours is along the Altausseer lake. And you can join him there! Take a deep breath, enjoy - and improve your handicap during an exclusive golf and hiking weekend in Styria.
Daily practice improves one’s game. And if you can do so against the backdrop of a breathtaking natural setting, it's just perfect.
