“I’ve struggled for quite some time with my golf game, worked with various well-respected pros, and practiced - but to no avail. While all of the pros were no doubt excellent instructors we were never able to communicate on the same wavelength so each attempt ended in disappointment. A friend told me about Scott and how he would help me achieve my goals by initially determining how I learn best from a sensory perspective and then teach accordingly. Sounded weird but it worked! Thanks to Scott my game has significantly improved and I look forward to playing golf as often as possible.”
