About Matt

Matt Jones Family
Matt was born and raised in Oyster Bay, a small suburb outside of Sydney Australia. Matt has wanted to be a golfer from the time he could remember. At the young age of 6 years old, he met Australian golfer Greg Norman who was ranked the number one golfer in the world at the time. This was a highlight in Matt’s life and sparked his determination to becoming a professional golfer. Matt learned to play golf with his Father and Uncle. He spent most of his days scrambling on the golf course with his older brother. Matts first professional lesson was at the age of 15 with Gary Barter who to this day is still his swing coach and mentor. They have built a life long relationship learning, studying and perfecting the golf swing. Matt takes pride in that they share the same philosophy and vision of golf.

Matt moved to the United States in 1998. He attended Arizona State University where he was a first team All-American. He turned professional in 2001. Matt played on the Nationwide tour for several years before his rookie season on the PGA Tour in 2008.

Matt is a true representation of hard work and persistency. Matt has shown a tremendous amount of courage time and time again continuing to keep status on the PGA tour since 2008. As a result of Matts hard work in his 156th PGA tour start he earned his first PGA tour win at the Shell Houston Open. Matt strives to maintain confidence, composure and consistency. He continues to build upon his foundation preparing him for a long successful career.

Matt married the love of his life in 2010. They have 2 beautiful daughters, Saber born in 2012 and Savannah born in 2014. Matt is a true family man. When not on the course, he prefers to be with them. His main hobby is now spending time with his girls. From date night to tea parties, soccer and dance to bottle feedings and diapers, Matt loves every bit of it. His wife Melissa does a great deal to keep life flowing smooth throughout the golf season. She supports him and encourages him with unconditional love. They both strive as a team to exemplify the courage and humility it takes to succeed in life.
