"We are very excited to be sponsoring Troy and Brett on the PGA TOUR as this will help to build brand recognition for In The Woods while strengthening relationships with customers who cherish the game of golf," said In The Woods President and CEO John Barth.

We are incredibly happy with our decision to sponsor these two young golfers and the company wishes Troy and Brett the best in their upcoming tournaments," Barth added.

Since 1982, In The Woods has been building beautiful, durable and energy-efficient, hand-crafted custom log homes that accommodate the unique lifestyle and tastes of each individual customer….even Troy and Brett. Upon teaming up with Wetterich and Matteson, In The Woods began designing building log homes for each golfer.

In The Woods’ Planning Specialists helped Troy develop plans for his custom log home set to be erected in early 2008 on his property in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Brett is currently at the drawing board with In The Woods’ Planning Specialists, putting plans together for his “hidden retreat” in Ohio.

Matteson, considered one of the best young American players on tour, turned pro in 2003 after graduating from Georgia Tech and has experienced much success as a rookie on the TOUR.

Member of the PGA Tour in 2000-2002, 2005-2007 and the Nationwide Tour in 2003-2004, Wetterich, 34, has remained a key competitor throughout his career.
