Matthew Wolff, in dispute at the US Open, talks about mental health

“Looking back on it, it’s always easy to be like, gosh, you’re just overreacting. But in the moment, it’s much, much harder to be from an outside perspective, and that’s kind of what I’m trying to focus on and just enjoying myself, which is good.” According to Wolff, as good as his life is on the PGA Tour, “there’s also a lot of stress and pressure that comes along with it, and it got to me,” he said. Wolff, who was runner-up at the US Open in 2020, was asked if it would change him should he win this event, which would be his first major title.

On Friday, Wolff told reporters he never was dealing with a hand injury. He also admitted that on Thursday and Friday, even after playing well, he wanted to stay in bed. In April, Wolff was disqualified from the Masters when he signed an incorrect scorecard. Before that, he had withdrawn from two tournaments: the Farmers Insurance Open in January (he cited a hand injury after shooting a 78 in the opening round) and the WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession in February after a score of 83 in the first round. He didn’t play in the PGA Championship in May.

“I wanted to be like where I was comfortable, not in the spotlight,” Wolff said. “It’s awesome that I came out here and played well, but I think more importantly, I’m just getting closer to being more comfortable and being happy and enjoying it. I feel like I’ve done a very good job of enjoying it, but I’ve still got a long way to go to keep a level head. I’ll probably be working on the same thing that I’m working on now for the rest of my career.” “Thankfully, I am, as well as playing well. It’s a great position I’m in. I’m contending at the US Open, and I’m very happy right now and enjoying it, but I know there’s going to be times that I’m not enjoying it as much or not playing as well. For those times, that’s what I’m trying to work for and work toward and kind of prepare before it happens.”

Source “I know you might think I’m bulls—ting you, but I’m not. I’m really just out here trying to have a good time and enjoy myself. Like I said, even this morning, I felt like I was struggling to get out of bed because I was just wanting to stay in a safe spot, and it’s just hard. Right now the absolute only thing that I’m focusing on is enjoying myself and being happy out there. It’s probably not a coincidence that I’m playing well when I’m doing that, but that’s the main focus this entire week and probably for a while.”

“I can’t express it enough that my scores up there, even though I’m happy right now, 4-under par, one off the lead or whatever, I really could care less about that right now,” Wolff said. He answered that he doesn’t think it wouldn’t change him at all.
