Scott then made his way to Landmark Golf Club in the Palm Springs desert where he assisted in hosting the annual PGA Tour Skins Game from 1999-2003.

Philosophy
“No two people swing alike but with the use of proper fundamentals anyone can improve. I structure the instruction to the students needs and ultimately find a way to communicate the best way they know how to learn. Our goal is to make sure you improve in each lesson and become the player you’ve hoped of being.”
