Scott’s Philosophy - The most important thing in my mind is for the kids to feel golf is fun.
And as they get older to remember that golf is something they really enjoyed. The next thing is for
us to build simple-to- remember swing thoughts that they will remember for as long as they play the
game. If your child decides they wish to become a competitive player, then I will be more than happy
to guide you and them in that totally different endeavor. But that is not what the After School Kids
Program (ASKP) is about. I simply want your child to smile when golf is mentioned to them.
