• AUTHOR / PRODUCER of DVD "DRILL FREAK" INSTRUCTIONAL SERIES
I give over 1,000 private lessons every year using my 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.
What to expect initially...
Game improvement is a collaborative process. It involves excellent communication between
instructor/coach and student. The thoughts you are offered should result in improved ball flight
and consistency. A set of drills for you to implement into your swing will be addressed during
this initial assessment, and a noticeable change in movement during your swing should begin to
evolve into the following:
EFFICIENT BODY MOVEMENT
BETTER BALL FLIGHT
As we move forward with your swing...
Keep in mind that when you are making swing changes, you are re-patterning a motor-learning
skill. You are attempting to alter “muscle memory” and create new patterns of movement that
will eventually result in enhanced motor skills and proper body movement which some may
regard as "new muscle memory". Desired performance comes with deliberate and consistent
practice – until the body feels the new pattern. Remember also that it will take dedication on
your part to help re-vamp your swing by doing the drills you will receive, practicing the
positions you will be taught, and by simply having the desire and passion to get better. I will be
patiently working with you through this process!!
I have felt your frustration...
I have had a love affair with golf for over 45 years. Having been involved in many types of
athletics, I figured I’d give golf a shot….then another and another, until I started to
"figure it out in the dirt", (basically, I practiced a lot). I then quickly became addicted to this
great sport. 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, and then instructor of the game...and the learning
process still goes on. Simply put, the golf swing is a work in progress. "Knowledge is
power" in a golf swing, which is where I will help you!!
Scotty McAlarney A.K.A "The Drill Freak"
Scotty has studied the “mental approach” to golf written and taught by Dr Greg Steinberg, and
now holds a certification of golf psychology from Dr. Steinberg
Scotty - who was self-taught when playing as a top amateur player in the Northeast part of Pa.
credits Ben Hogan, Homer Kelley, Lynn Blake and Jim McLean as some of his early influences
on the golf swing.
Noted as being “the best swing coach” in the greater Northeast part of Pa., Scotty has continued
to play a vital role in the growth of the game. His passion for junior golf and getting the most out
of his golf students, is evident by their successes in both high school and collegiate golf.
