While being a student of the game and a prominent teacher, Scott focuses his instruction more on playing the game than the technical aspect. Although efficient with modern technology to improve your swing, ball flight, and short game, his focus is on “coaching” you on how to score better. Statistical aspects, course management, and developing a personalized game plan will ensure that each player he works with can and will shoot better scores with a minimum of physical changes or corrections.
Scott will be assisting with the Elite Junior Golf Academy, offering individual and group instructional classes, and personalized coaching opportunities to players of all ages and abilities.
