Haywood believes ScoreBand will help students improve their game: "I'm so excited to be a ScoreBand Ambassador for Golf! I love the concept and design and I'm confident it will help my students lower their scores and make their golf experience more fun and enjoyable. I wear mine on the golf course, at the gym, and just running around. It's so comfortable I don't even know I have it on and I get lots of compliments too. Wear it once and you'll love it!"
