Scott Paycheck Golf
I played college golf at Barton College from 2015-2019, where I worked my way from the #7 seed with a 78 stroke average to the #1 seed, MVP, and 2 time Academic All-American with a 72 stroke average. I played professionally for a year afterwards, and now I love to help others improve their games!
I spent time learning under PGA Tour coach George Gankas - one of the best golf coaches in the world (if you don't know who he is, look him up).
I love watching the joy students feel when they start to improve! I remember the satisfaction I felt as I improved as a player throughout high school, college & professionally - and it's fulfilling to help other golfers experience that same feeling. There is so much joy to be experienced in the game of golf, and I want to help others experience that joy!
