Matthew's husband, Graeme, is her full-time caddy and their two daughters Katie and Sophie, who are 4 and 2, often join the couple during tournament weeks. But with Matthew having to play internationally and be away from home without her kids for a stretch of six out of seven weeks, she had her husband stay home with their daughters in Scotland while she headed to Mexico. She had an old friend, Chuck, who is a caddy on the PGA Tour, carry her bag for the week.
"I think in a way it makes me try to concentrate and focus harder, because I'm away from family so I try and make the most of it," Matthew said after her round on Saturday. "They travel maybe 60% of the time with us. They have a good daycare system in the States so that works out well. Yeah it's difficult when you're away but I'm going to be home for two months so back to being a normal mom. (Chuckles.)"
