The DrillFreak Story
What started out as a dad teaching his young son the golf swing - in a very methodical way - in a garage, morphed into a 25-year professional golf teaching career. Years ago, the word spread like wildfire how well Scotty’s son, Corey, was playing. This compelled many other golfers to follow Corey’s footsteps and become students of Scotty’s as well. Today, Scotty’s son holds a great golf resume including a career as a PGA Class A Golf Professional while Scotty’s “A Swing for Life” Golf Academy has found a home at his family-owned golf business - Scott Greens Golf Club - with hundreds of students enrolled.
From the start, Scotty employed drills to fix certain flaws in a golf swing, especially in the “hitting zone” of the swing. What followed was an obsession to find a drill or create a set of drills to fix anything within the confines of the golf swing - including issues with a student’s mobility and their mental approach while on the golf course.
Scotty’s reputation and his “secret sauce” ... drills, drills, and more drills … led to many students becoming champions every year. It was those same students who knighted him with the moniker – Drill Freak.
Over the years, the golf academy has evolved into a highly-respected school for golfers, but one thing has remained constant – Scotty’s philosophy of finding or creating drills to fix flaws in any golfer’s swing. Now, he and all of his students are on their way of building a
Drill Freak Nation!
The HITTING ZONE SWING TRAINER
My passion for this game has led me down many interesting fairways, and meeting very interesting people. Oh and yes, I’ve seen my share of hazards as well, but the thought of it never altered the way I became a student - then instructor - of the game, and the learning process that still goes on. Simply, the golf swing is a work in progress, and “Knowledge is Power” in a golf swing, which is where I will help you!!
The PYGO CHALLENGE
For 24 years. Scotty gives over 1,000 private lessons a year using this proven golf system. The ASFL system focuses on the hitting zone and impact position, based primarily on what the best players in the world are doing in the “Hitting Zone”, while building the swing from impact to the full-swing. The program is easy to understand, promotes healthy positions throughout the swing and develops a repeatable swing. The latest technology with video and launch monitor is used to customize a lesson program in your very first lesson.
