Apprentice Instructor

Originally from Tempe, AZ. Scott Kuiper has been playing golf since the age of twelve. With the local public nine hole just a bike ride away, Scott spent all his free time on the golf course. While part of a Junior Caddie program in his youth, he developed a strong foundation of the fundamentals of the swing. Learning what he calls “The Language of Golf.” Athletic and academic endeavors led Scott to Florida State University where he would receive his MFA on a full ride. Scott uses his experiences from his prior professional career as a stage actor to relate to body awareness and the moment before the golf swing. Scott is a former Club Builder of PXG. His instruction is augmented by the amazing facilities and technologies at the Legacy Performance Center under the  mentorship of Jeremy Anderson. By placing an emphasis on “curiosity,” Scott teaches his students how to be more observant of the clues that every golf swing leaves behind. A curious golfer equals efficient practice sessions, ultimately leading to lower scores.
