Meet Austin. . .
I started playing golf when I was 15 years old and was instantly addicted to the competitiveness. I fell in love with the process of getting better.
I played 2 years of NJCAA golf and decided to turn pro after that; At the age of 20 I packed my car and moved to Florida to chase my dream!
While I was admittedly nowhere close to being a professional golfer, I found myself getting closer every day, and have had recent success. As you probably already know, professional golf is very expensive, especially at the mini-tour stage.
I have launched this golf crowdfunding campaign to raise money to pay for events, expenses, and mainly for PGA Tour Canada Q-school in March of 2017.
To all that have helped me reach my recent success, and those who will help me reach my full potential, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Nobody has ever made it without a team of dedicated individuals standing behind them. While I don’t have many professional accolades in my young career, I know that I have what it takes, mentally, and physically. I will do all that is in my power to reach my goals and my full potential.
From Coach Matt:
As a former 1998 WPGA Junior Leader of the year award winner, and fairly competitive player, I have been around and created good players all my life.
This was certainly magnified by the fact that I worked closely with my late father for many years, which you can learn more about in the video ‘Bencriscutto’ below.
The fact that my father is in the Wisconsin Hall of Fame (both as a player and a national, award-winning teacher), and that I have enjoyed many years of teaching, practicing, playing and studying the golf swing, means that picking out potential in players has become quite easy for me.
The reason I mention all of this is to first lend credibility to my endorsement of Austin Benz, and also let you know that I can actually explain why Austin has such a great probability of making onto the PGA Tour.
All of the greatest ball strikers have the same things in common, and Austin is getting closer every day. Great players make it appear all so simple, when it is actually a very complex sequencing of motions that has a significant amount of moving parts.
My job is to make it easy to understand, and to teach it to in a way that player fully understands (and feels) without needing to make massive changes.
Austin has come a long way in a very short period of time. We are continuing to find and work on the weakest areas of his game, and making rapid improvements.
Austin is hard-working, diligent and focused on becoming the best player he can be, and we have made a formidable team together. He continues to get better each week, and I have no problem offering my endorsement to Austin. It also should be noted that I rarely offer my services to a player the way I have with Austin.
Lastly, I can assure you that there have been many other players less qualified and or deserving of a sponsorship who were fortunate enough to get one. With the necessary financial backing, Austin is one who truly has a chance to make it, and most certainly deserving of the chance.

Low 4 round total!
Recently, I have been playing the best golf of my life. I shot my low round (64) and a career best -15 (273) for 4 rounds. I look forward to carrying my best golf into my summer tournament schedule.
