Scott Alan Sturgeon “SSPRO” of Berlin, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. Born in Springfield Massachusetts on June 23, 1956. He was the son of Judy (Keegan) Sturgeon and the late Eugene F Sturgeon. Scott attended Berlin High school and earned his associates degree from Tunxis Community College.

Scott began his career in the golf business as an assistant professional at Indian Hill CC, Cliffside CC and Tumble Brook CC before moving on to help build Golfers Warehouse.

He developed countless relationships in the golf industry and moved on to be a manufacturer’s representative with Mizuno, Adams and Taylor Made among others.
