Schmid turned pro in 2021 having reached a high of 10th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. He won the Europan Amateur Championship in both 2019 and 2020 and would go on to win the Silver Medal for low amateur at the 2021 Open Championship.
He's acquitted himself well in the pro ranks and his fine play was rewarded with the honour of being named Rookie of the Year on the European Tour in 2021. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him win on the DP World Tour in 2022.
Matti only turned pro in 2021.

Events to back Schmid
BMW International Open
Matti posted a 14th place finish this year whilst still an amateur. This was an event he used to go to as a child with his dad and so he will have fond memories and will enjoy local support again in 2022.
Matti has yet to be in a playoff.

"It’s also cool to see someone who was at college at the same time as me do so well: I played at the same time at Viktor Hovland and Matt Wolff too, and when you see guys like that have success, it’s not too hard to think if they can prove themselves after a good college career then why can’t I."
"I did have one more invite to the Dutch Open – one I’d been given even before I won the Silver Medal – and I took the opportunity. I felt good about my game that week, but when I finished second it changed so much for me. It helped me gain status, but it also helped my confidence. I always knew I had it in me to compete at the highest level, but to play my best in a pressure situation over the weekend in front of fans just really helped my self-belief. I also learned a big lesson too: that you don’t need to do anything special and you don’t need miracles, you just need to play your game and trust your doing the right thing to be able to compete."
"Ultimately in my golfing career my big goal is to win the Green Jacket, but until I can get an opportunity to do that I have a lot of things I can still improve in my game."
