In the course of nine events at the end of the 2019 season, Matthias recorded five top five results to finish 17th in the Race to Dubai.
Qualified to the European Tour at the 2017 Qualify in School Final Stage.
Completed his amateur career in 2017 as the best European and no. 4 in the Wolrd Amateur Golf Ranking after a hugely successful time at Vanderbilt University – where he was two-time All-American.
Helped Europe to win the Palmer cup in 2016 before turning professional the following season.
Debuted on TV as eleven-year-old in one of Germany’s most favorite game show (“Wetten, dass…?”). The task of Matthias was to juggle a golf ball while riding a unicycle in a figure-of-eight loop. First with his right hand, then with his left hand and finally alternating between the two. Matthias mastered the challenge brilliantly. Boris Becker, who bet against Schwab and spent the rest of the show in a Mozart costume as a punishment, was the godfather of the bet.
