Having played the game of golf since he was in the fifth grade, Sacred Heart’s Michael Matteucci continues to show he is one of the top golfers in the area. This season is expected to be one of his best.
“This year I am most excited about playing the courses that I did not play well last year and seeing how much I’ve improved,” said Matteucci. “First and foremost, my goal is to keep our consecutive state title streak going. Individually, my goals this season are to try and place top 15 at every meet and to place top ten in the state meet.”
Playing with this group at Sacred Heart has been a blessing for Matteucci.
“What I like most about my teammates is that we are all good friends. We have played a lot of golf together both in and out of season for the past several years,” he said.
Like many golfers, Matteucci has a favorite place to play and a favorite club to hit.
“In town, my favorite place to play is the Salina Country Club,” Matteucci said. “My favorite club to hit is probably my 58-degree wedge because the ‘inside 100 yards’ is my favorite shot to hit.”
After graduation his plans include going to Kansas State University to pursue a degree in physical therapy.
