In a golf career that spans more than three decades, Skip Guss has trained under World Golf Hall of Famer Sam Snead, CBS Golf Analyst Peter Kostis, and Jack Grout, a golf legend who coached Jack Nicklaus to 73 PGA Tour wins. The tools and techniques gleaned from this group of golf intelligentsia led Skip to considerable success on the course, fueling victories in more than 30 pro-golf tournaments and a stint as a PGA Tour contender from 1977–1978. These skills continue to drive his passion for the game at GolfRite Performance Center, where Skip combines his pin-hunting wisdom with modern technology to enhance his students' skills and bionic putter arms.
From Southborough Golf Practice & Learning Center, Skip and his team of instructors watch as golfers drive balls into a 300-yard driving range—which facilitates practice day and night—while video analysis helps the pros dissect swings without having to ask clients to swing in slow-motion. In addition, the Center's custom club-fitting equipment can pair golfers with their crooked-stick counterpart based on body dimensions, swing mechanics, and penchant for chewing fairway grass.
