Episode #46: Scott Fawcett - DECADE Golf 101 & Going to Q-School at 49 Years Young

Today on Wicked Smart Golf I'm joined by Scott Fawcett, the creator of DECADE Golf. Scott is known as the "moneyball of golf" and uses data to help make decisions easier as his revolutionary course management system is changing the way golf is played.

DECADE is used by top players like Bryson DeChambeau, Will Zalatoris, and countless other professional golfers. Not to mention collegiate players and elite amateurs (I've used this system for most of 2022 and it's helped me have my best year ever in tournament golf). 

If you're not familiar with this course management system, DECADE stands for:

  • D: Distance
  • E: Expectation 
  • C: Correct Target
  • A: Analyze
  • D: Discipline
  • E: Execute 

This system makes it easy to pick your targets, play the percentages, and ultimately, shoot lower scores by avoiding big numbers.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How to make your misses "better"
  • Why you only need one shot off the tee
  • How to pick targets and make better decisions
  • The five most important stats to measure (known as the Tiger 5)
  • Why you need to master self-awareness to not let your emotions get the best of you 

Plus, hear about his crazy experience going to the first stage of Q-school as a 49-year-old amateur. Listen to the full episode to get your PhD in course management and become wicked smart!
