Matt’s parents are Ukrainian; he attended school in Sanford, Florida, Seminole High School, and following matriculation he enrolled at Georgia Tech, where his golf-playing career began. He was a part of the university team, and was named into the All-American team twice. He won the US Amateur championship in 1997, the year before having lost to Tiger Woods. The following year he won the Haskins award, and two years later, after graduating with a degree in management, Matt decided to turn pro.
He was late for the 2000 season on the PGA tour, as he previously worked for a financial firm, and missed-out the date. Nevertheless, thanks to sponsors, he participated in several events on the PGA tour in 2001, and managed to earn enough money in order to participate the next season. Then came his first victory, at the Honda Classic, which increased his net worth by a large margin. However, his career took a turn for the worse, which resulted in him losing his PGA tour card in 2005, and so competed in the Nationwide Tour in 2006.
