To get to know Scott better and discover his passion for
the game of golf...
Scott's journey with golf began at the age of seven when
he inherited his older brother's golf clubs. He spent countless hours honing
his skills by hitting practice balls around the backyard.
One of the pivotal moments in Scott's golfing journey
took place during his service in the Army. In 2006, during a large golf outing
with his unit in sunny Orlando, Florida, he faced a challenging 143-yard par 3
hole. His tee shot soared through the air and landed an astonishing three

Scott's commitment to service extends far beyond the golf
course. After serving honorably in the US Army for 25 years, he retired in
2017. Today, he leads a semi-retired life as a lawyer, occasionally lending his
expertise to those in need. However, his dedication to giving back remains
Scott generously volunteers as a coach with the PGA Jr.
League, where he nurtures the next generation of golfers and shares his
profound love for the sport. Twice a year, he takes on the role of proctor at
the Ohio Bar Exam, and on election day, he dutifully serves as a poll worker.
During the golf off-season, Scott stays active by joining
a bowling league, ensuring he remains limber for the fairways and greens. While
he was once an active member of Mensa, his priorities have shifted since moving
to Southwest Ohio, where his passion for golf and community service now take
Scott and his wife, Kelly, have celebrated 27 years of
marriage. They call Springfield, OH, their home and share it with two
incredibly pampered cats. They are even considering adopting a dog, now that
they reside in the countryside.
Thanks for being a dedicated Miami Valley Golf Volunteer!
