Not only is our Director of Instruction Steve Scott giving you a great lesson on what to do with your lead hand, he’s celebrating the birthday of one of his mentors, Bob Toski, who turns 95 years old today.

Scott has returned with a new series of videos, this time shot on the gorgeous rolling hills of Sleepy Hollow Country Club, north of New York City along the Hudson River.

Speaking of celebrating, we’ve been doing that with Steve of late, as the 25th anniversary of one of golf’s historic moments recently passed, when Tiger Woods attempted to claim an unprecedented third straight U.S. Amateur Championship conducted at Pumpkin Ridge GC.

His opponent was none other than our Steve Scott, who, in a gracious move that follows golf etiquette, told Woods he had to move his mark back during a key putt. If Scott would have stayed silent, Tiger’s run would have certainly been derailed, but an act of sportsmanship still rings true a quarter-century later.

“Hey, Tiger – you need to move your mark back,” was released earlier this year (Skyhorse Publishing, $19.99), and is available at movethatback.com.

Aside from leading our lessons, Scott is also the PGA head golf professional at the Outpost Club, founder of the Silver Club Golfing Society and a PGA Tour Live analyst.
