Important Message from Two-Time PGA Teacher Of The Year
Dear Frustrated Golfer,
Tell me if this sounds familiar...
After a nice tee shot that finds the middle of the fairway, you have 110 yards to the pin and you're licking your chops.
You imagine yourself hitting a flush wedge inside 8 feet, knocking in the birdie putt, and strolling to the next tee confidently.
Then it happens...
You feel your wedge dig into the ground two inches behind the ball, and look up to see your ball has flown a grand total of 30 yards.
After embarrassingly walking to your ball, knocking it on the green, and promptly 3 putting, you walk off the green with a double bogey.
[email protected] IT!!! What Happened???
All the while a few of your buddies (who you'll probably now lose a bet with) are watching this catastrophe unfold right in front of them.
After driving home from the course mad at the world, you get home, fire up your laptop, and find some instructional videos to help you fix these disasters in your game... once and for all.
So you watch one video from a top instructor that says do this, only to turn around and watch another video that says the exact opposite.
All of a sudden, you're left confused and overwhelmed... because when it comes to online golf instruction, there is no consistency!
Think about it...
How on earth can you shoot lower scores (and stop hitting those humiliating shots) if you're listening to 3, 5, or 10 different instructors, each of which has a different take on things?
It's impossible. It leads to information overload, which leaves you worse off (and more confused) than when you started!
"I can't get off the tee box. If I could just put my driver in the fairway consistently with reasonable distance, my scores would drop immediately."
"I feel like I'm taking a different swing to the course everyday and sometimes even use "different swings" on the same hole. I have no clue where the ball is going!"
"I can't stop hitting those high, weak fades with irons, and sometimes tug them too far left as well..."
"When I stand over a wedge, the thought "don't chunk it or skull it" always enters my mind".
"I can't recover from bad shots. I always compound my errors instead of saving strokes."
"Pitching and chipping is a struggle. I can't seem to find the center of the clubface and control my distance and trajectory on those "tough shots".
"I can't read greens or control my speed. I can't make the short ones, and my lag putting isn't very good either."
You're not alone. These are exact things I hear from my students daily at my golf instruction studio in Naples, FL.
How can you finally become a better player, and eliminate those bad shots from tee to green that inflate your scores and bruise your ego?
The Premium SGA Membership from Scratch Golf Academy is an "all in one" golf instruction membership... it's the only golf instructional coaching you'll EVER need.
It completely solves the problem of fragmented, confusing instruction by giving you all of the knowledge, feedback, and training you need in one program, from one instructor, teaching one method.
It's specifically for golfers of all skill levels who want to eliminate "information overload," and follow a clear, simple, and straightforward path to better golf.
But before we get to all of that, let's go ahead and address the elephant in the room...
My name is Adam Bazalgette, and I was the Director of Instruction at the prestigious David Leadbetter Golf Academy for 14 years.
I have been a Class A PGA professional for over 30 years, highly in demand, and with a long waiting list of students. I currently operate Scratch Golf Academy in Naples, FL.
Here are a few facts you may find interesting:
I was voted Teacher of the Year by Southwest Florida PGA in 1998 & 2008.
I've worked with players on the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tours, as well as many of the top NCAA players in the country.
I've appeared on the golf channel many times.
I've given over 40,000 lessons in my professional career (averaging 1,250 lessons per year for the last 30 years for you math junkies out there) ...
I was voted by Gulfshore Life Magazine as one of the top 10 teaching pros of all time.
But what I'm most proud of in my entire career is that I've helped thousands of golfers over the internet, that I've never met in person, become more consistent players, lower their scores, and have fun playing this crazy game.
You'll learn why pros and top amateurs are obsessed with mastering the fundamentals (and why you MUST be too... this isn't optional if you want to play great golf).
The deadly takeaway flaw that 95% of golfers make that ruins your chance of ever becoming a consistent ball striker (and how to fix it in one practice session).
A single, foolproof drill that will get you in the ideal position at the top of your backswing (that is seldom taught elsewhere).
How you can eliminate the swing flaw that leads to chunked irons and wedges once and for all.
How to add 25+ yards to your drives, and keep the ball in play on those tight par 4's (do this, and you’ll easily save 2 strokes a side).
What the “wear pattern” on your irons says about your swing, and how you must strike your irons with forward shaft lean to hit crisp, solid iron shots.
How to “feel” the same impact position as great players such as Hogan, Jack, Tiger, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and more (once you can “feel it”...repeating it becomes much easier)!
Make the leap from having a poor short game to being “the guy in your foursome with the great short game that everyone notices.”
How to read greens while “marrying” line and speed perfectly. You’ll hole more of those short knee knockers and improve your lag putting drastically.
The “anti-slice” and “anti-hook” mechanisms that will help you eliminate one side of the golf course (an “insider secret” you hear PGA tour players discuss frequently).
You’re not just going to learn “do this, do that”, you’ll develop a thorough understanding of how the golf swing really works.
There’s just so much great stuff here... and it also includes Scratch Golf Academy LIVE, our preferred buyers club, and your personal 1-on-1 coaching access (more on that below)!

As you know, golf is a game of constant improvement... you’re never “done” working on your game.
Which is why I’m committed to helping you get better in the short term and over the long haul.
As part of your Premium SGA membership, you’ll enjoy access to ALL new premium courses I’m releasing in the near future (in addition to the 10 courses you get access to immediately after you join).
Let me repeat that... I’ll be releasing new premium video courses on a ongoing basis (each course a $67 value) which will be included in your monthly membership at no additional cost.
You’ll master the basics of the greenside bunker shot. After that I’ll show you how to handle other challenges including fairway bunkers.
There’s a lot of trouble on a golf course. I’ll share with you my best techniques for hitting great recovery shots and saving more pars.
Tired of spending hours on the range without making any progress? I’ll show you how to “practice with a purpose” so you’ll actually improve.
Learn to hit solid fairway woods that fly long and straight from any lie with my fairway woods video course.
This course will teach you how to hit crisp pitch shots that land softly with spin and snuggle up right next to the flagstick.
Ever find yourself near the green, but in an awkward spot? I’ll go over how I handle these weird shots with accuracy.
Remember, my goal is to ensure your Premium SGA Membership is the only golf instructional coaching you’ll EVER need. You’ll be getting access to new, premium content for the lifetime of your membership. Guaranteed!
This is a monthly interactive group training session that I host for all Premium SGA members. I don’t hide behind the camera... you’ll see my handsome mug front and center, ready to field your questions, as well as demonstrate techniques and drills to help you fix your most common swing faults.
Live, real-time interaction with me directly from my coaching studio to your screen.
My “ask me anything” policy. Whether it’s a problem with your swing, short game, mental game or course management, I’ll provide you with immediate, personalized answers to your questions
You’ll also see me demonstrate, on video, drills and techniques you can use at home or on the practice tee to help you solve the issues that are keeping you from playing your best golf.
Each live event is brought to you in stunning HD for a high-quality viewing experience.
Every month’s event has a different “theme.” Even if you’re unsure what you should be working on, you’ll still get plenty of advice, tips, and drills you can apply to your game.
After you’ve attended a few SGA Live events and asked several questions, we start to get to know each other personally and develop a great “instructor/student bond”… which I think is pretty cool!
I can’t emphasize enough how valuable it will be for your game to attend these live, interactive training sessions with me.
Remember, I’m giving you instant feedback accompanied by personalized drills (that I demonstrate on video just for you) so that you’ll not only improve, but improve quickly.
Now…one question I hear quite often is “Adam, what happens if I can’t make it one month?”
No worries. I take care of my Premium members! Every SGA Live event is recorded and added to your Premium SGA members area so you can go back and view it at anytime.
I’ve actually had people join Premium SGA just for this... I’m not kidding.
Whether it’s equipment, training aids, clothing or technology you’ll receive significant discounts via our exclusive network of preferred online golf retailers.
We thoroughly vet all of our partners, so you can expect nothing but the lowest prices and the best service on everything you need.
Premium SGA members get the opportunity to book direct access with me where I will analyze your swing and provide comprehensive feedback.
Just send me a video directly from your phone or tablet, and I’ll provide a full video summary including voiceover, graphics, split-screen, and slow motion comparisons with me personally demonstrating the drills I recommend just for you.
And remember... any swing analysis you ever get from me goes straight into a special section within your Premium SGA membership area... so you’ll never have to worry about losing it!
When it comes to improving your game, this is as close to a shortcut as you’ll find anywhere.
Note: While there is an additional fee for 1-on-1 personal coaching, it’s one of the most popular, in-demand aspects of my program, and most importantly is only available to Premium SGA members!

- David Leadbetter
Top 3 Golf Instructor Worldwide,

- Andrew Rice
Instructor on Golf Digest 2017-'18 Top 50 Instructors
“I’ve known Adam for many years, and I am confident that his videos will really help you with your game. Adam has always been a great communicator on swing elements with me.”
- Mark Lye
Former PGA Tour Player
Golf Channel Analyst
“A golfer with any skill level would benefit from watching the video golf lessons from Scratch Golf Academy. I highly recommend Adam as a golf instructor.”
- Steve Rogers
Competed in 2010 U.S. Senior Open

2012 U.S. Senior Amateur
“Adam has a thorough knowledge of the swing, and I'm confident he can help you with your game."

"Adam has been my coach for the last 25 years. I feel my technique has improved a lot during our time together, and has really helped me with my longevity. I can also rely upon Adam to get me back on track anytime I'm struggling."
- Lou Westol,
21 Club Championship Victories
(and has shot his age 600+ times)
"Since I began following the lessons at SGA not only has my game and ball striking improved, but how I view golf and learning has changed. I have become a better student of the game."
“SGA Premium has been great in helping my son’s overall understand of the game improve along with his handicap. The videos Adam provides inside the membership site continues to help David reach for higher levels and is one of the key reasons for David's success as a competitive junior golfer. We look forward to how far Adam and David can go together over the next few years.”
David (Junior Golfer)
Adam’s videos at SGA haved helped me both with my golf swing and my golf game, and I have far greater consistency and better results during a round of golf than I ever had before I worked with him. Key to the success is that Adam can communicate how he wants you to adjust your swing, and what the effect of the adjustment will be. Adam has a capacity to point out the good aspects of the swing, and points to the video to show you what went right. Adam has a genuine enthusiasm as a teacher, and it is easy to work with him for that reason alone. Thanks, Adam.”
“I have been a Premium member for about 1 year now and my golf game has improved tremondously. I was surprised at how fast Adam was able to dial in my swing. Adam’s videos helped my diagnose my swing flaws and helped me correct my slice in a matter of minutes. I now hit the ball better than I ever have. My handicap was +26 before joining Scratch Golf Academy and now I shoot in the mid 80's consistently. I owe it to SGA!”
“Adam has been my coach for the last few years. Because of his expert techniques and the way he helps me understand how to improve my game I enjoy golf more than ever. With Adam I have been a US KIDS Player of the Year in Collier County, made my Middle School Co-ed Golf team every year and look forward to competing throughout High School and beyond. Thank you Adam!”
Vasy (13 year old Junior Golfer)
If you were to come visit me at my instructional studio in Naples, 10 hours of lessons would set you back around $1,500.
And honestly, we couldn’t cover 1/10th of what I’ve compiled into my Premium SGA program.
Not to mention that you wouldn’t have me in your living room, “on demand,” helping you fix all of your faults from tee to green... at your convenience (no scheduling lessons)!
And hey, that’s not even accounting for Scratch Golf Academy LIVE, our VIP Preferred Buyers Club, access to all of our new, upcoming courses, or the personal 1-on-1 coaching!
How about $500?
What about $250?
Pretty cool, right? Heck, you can’t hardly buy a large drink and bucket of popcorn at the movies for under $20!
And $54.95 quarterly? That’s 3 months of full access to Premium SGA for the same price as a dozen Titleist Pro V1s.
And it only gets better...because if you decide to move forward with our annual membership option (which about 45% of our students do) you will save even more.
I’m going to be really honest you with here.
I don’t want students who feel they aren’t getting value from my instruction.
If you join, and don’t find Premium SGA to be worth every penny, then please email me ([email protected]) for a prompt refund.
It’s pretty obvious I’m taking all of the risk here... if you find that Premium SGA is helping you eliminate your bad shots and play more consistent golf, you’ll love being a member.
And if it isn’t...our 100% money back guarantee has you covered. We’re just a simple email away and you can cancel anytime. So you have nothing to lose except strokes off your scorecard (yeah that was kinda cheesy I know)!
Even though this is a “no brainer” offer for most golfers, I know you probably have questions.
Here are the answers:
Your golf instruction is called Scratch Golf Academy but I’m nowhere near a scratch player (0 handicap). Is Premium SGA too advanced for me?
"Not at all! Whether you’re already scratch and are just picking this up to glean a nugget or two, or you just started playing golf last week, the principles are the same, and you’ll see drastic improvements if you implement what I teach."
You already have a ton of videos that I can look at (for free) on Youtube. Why should I pay for this?
"This is my best stuff. Yes, I have a lot of really good instructional videos on Youtube, but the videos inside Premium SGA contain my “private vault” instructional material that I usually reserve for students paying $150+ per hour for 1-on-1 lessons."
Adam, I’m a little skeptical about this whole “video learning” thing. Can I really learn from you through video? Seems challenging. Wouldn’t face-to-face lessons with a pro be better?
"To go over everything provided in my Premium SGA program face-to-face with a PGA professional would require at least 30 golf lessons. Even at a “bargain rate” of $70/hour, that’s still $2,100+ (that’s not even close my rate, that’s just your average professional at a local club...my rate is more than double that). In addition to that, after those lessons are over...they’re over, forever.
3 months down the road...you’ll forget a bunch of stuff, and be right back where you started (only with $2,100+ less in your bank account).
With my video lessons, you have unlimited access on a monthly basis, and the ability to hit play/pause at anytime. I’ve created my Premium SGA membership so that it’s extremely easy and convenient for you to learn at your own pace.
And guess what? Even though getting a 1-on-1 lesson from a pro can be a great experience, a pro will not be with you on the golf course.
In the Premium SGA videos, I help you thoroughly understand your golf swing and get in-tune with the club so that you can actually fix your own problems on the course when things start to go a little sideways. You’ll be the only one in your foursome who can save a round when it needs saving the most."
This all sounds great, but what if Premium SGA doesn’t help me? What if it doesn’t meet my expectations?
"I have worked hard to bring this Premium SGA program to life for you. I know it will help every golfer who watches the videos and applies the lessons. That being said, if for any reason you aren’t satisfied with your purchase, all you have to do is contact me within 30 days, and I’ll issue a full refund, not hassles, no questions asked."
Why should I choose Premium SGA over other online golf instruction offers?
"In order to really improve, you need to choose ONE instructor and stick with them! There are other really good golf instructors online...no doubt about it. But, there is a reason I have over 105,000 Youtube subscribers (and counting).
My instruction helps golfers just like you get results in a simple, straightforward manner. Sure, you could try to piece different things together by watching countless “free” videos online, but Premium SGA gives you a simple, straightforward, proven instruction template from a two-time PGA teacher of the year that is proven to work.
(I also like to think I’m a pretty nice, easy going guy, and most people find my English accent kind of easy on the ears)."
Where do I start? There’s a lot here!
"Don’t feel overwhelmed. I suggest you start by navigating to the “SGA Master Collection” tab, and choosing the course that is designed to help you solve your most pressing issues (there are 10 courses total). Remember, as long as you stay a member you have unlimited access, so there is no rush!"
Access to all 10 Premium Courses from the SGA Master Collection (below):
New premium courses added to your membership on an ongoing basis
Monthly interactive coaching sessions with Adam via Scratch Golf Academy LIVE (All sessions are recorded and added to your member’s area if you happen to miss one)
Discounts on golf equipment, training aids, apparel, and technology via our preferred buyers club
Access to 1-on-1 personal coaching with Adam
*Remember you get immediate access, even if it’s 3am.*
