Growing up, I was I was bitten by the 'golf bug' at a young age. I loved playing golf, and I loved learning about golf. By the time I was 16 years old, I knew that I wanted to make golf my career so I chose to enroll with the PGA of America with the pursuit of being a club professional. After 15 years in the private club sector, culminating in Director of Golf at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest Illinois, I choose to focus all my energy into helping people improve their game. In 1997, I opened the Todd Sones Impact Golf Academy at White Deer Run Golf Club in Vernon Hills. Over the next 20 years we developed the program we now call the 'Scoring Zone' which has helped thousands of players to significantly lower their score. There's nothing more rewarding than having someone tell us that they shot a personal best score, and repeat it. That's the reason the Scoring Zone exists and we want to help you experience that feeling not once, but over and over.
Founder of Scoring Zone
When you see the logic behind the fundamentals, you can make adjustments to your setup and your swing that support what you’re trying to do.
To me, making the club descend through impact—making it land, so to speak—is the foundation of a good short game, so we’ll start there.
How many wedges do you need? And what lofts? We show you a basic wedge arsenal that helps you play the best short game.
Different scenarios shouldn't alter your mechanics. I'll walk you through the proper setup that will give you more swing options to confidently navigate the green.
Great putters don't think, they just do. Learn the right tips to develop a stroke that holds up under pressure and allows you to swing naturally.
A sense of feel and touch enables you to look at any length putt and control the distance.
Putt the ball with conviction by aiming the face of the putter to your start line.
Most golfers don't know the length or weight of their putter, yet putting makes up 40% of the score. You'll discover why having a custom fit putter will help you make more putts, and lower your score..
