The DECADE Course Management System, created by Scott Fawcett, has solved golf strategy by combining shot distribution patterns and PGA Tour scoring statistics. When Scott combined those two data sets he created a simple way to optimize target selection. Good players know if a pin is closely guarded by a lake to favor the center of the green – but how much? DECADE quickly generates the optimal target that will produce the lowest score based on distance, hazards, and hole location.
Scott undertook this project for his own game, but injury sidelined him in 2014. As a result, he reached out to a junior golfer at his home course in Dallas to caddie for him in the Texas Amateur, Will Zalatoris. Will won by THREE which was his first victory in anything other than a high school event! Three weeks later Scott caddied for Zalatoris at the U.S. Junior Amateur where he won again. We all now know what Zalatoris has since accomplished on the PGA Tour.
Heads were turning and questions were popping up at that point.
College coaches began calling. Since Scott lives in Dallas, SMU was one of the first college programs he worked with. Bryson DeChambeau was ranked 67th in the world when he attended Scott’s seminar. Six months later he had won both the NCAA Championships and the U.S. Amateur! Again, we all know what Bryson has accomplished since turning professional.
In addition to those two USGA wins, TEN other players have won USGA titles in the first six years Scott has taught his DECADE Course Management System – including both the US Junior Championship and US Amateur Championship in the Summer of 2017! FOUR NCAA Division 1 Champions have utilized the DECADE App in addition to the 2018 Women’s D1 and 2019 Augusta Women’s Amateur Champion.
