Scott McCormick comes from a long line of mediocre – yet devoted – golfers. He lives in Arizona with his wife Alexis and their two dogs. When not trying to improve his short game on an office putting machine or following his favorite PGA tour pros on Twitter, he works as an freelance writer for GolfNow, specializing in San Diego Golf and Phoenix Golf. When Tiger Woods demonstrated some poor golf etiquette at this year’s Masters Tournament, the world was watching closely. From uttering unmistakable four-letter words to kicking his nine-iron, any behavior by Tiger Woods that could be deemed juvenile was analyzed to death.
