EVAN BETT

FOUNDER & CEO | LEAD SPECIALIST

BHK | PGA of Canada Professional | TPI Certified | C.H.E.K Golf Performance Specialist | C.H.E.K Holistic Lifestyle Coach

A multi-sport athlete with a lifetime passion for golf. Evan’s been playing the sport since he got his first set of clubs at age 9. His competitive nature led to years of tournament golf at a Junior, High School and Inner-City level. Evan continued to follow his fierce connection with both movement and athletics to a post-secondary level where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Human Kinetics from the University of Windsor. As a PGA of Canada Professional, TPI and C.H.E.K Certified Golf Performance Specialist and Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Evan has as much experience and knowledge of the game as he does the interplay between movement, mobility and mechanics.

After a period of struggle and disappointment with his golf game, Evan began looking for answers. Despite countless hours of practice in every area of his game he, like many other golfers, suffered a plateau in performance. Fast forward through four years of experimentation with various exercise principles, an endless pursuit for further education and countless hours of trial and error both in the gym and on the course, Evan now dedicates his time to sharing his experiences with golfers of all ages and skill levels, helping them overcome the same barriers to performance he once battled himself.
