After high school, Scott and his teammate Mickelson enrolled at Arizona State University. The two enrolled on a partial golf scholarship and although Scott wasn’t a professional golfer, she managed to be listed among the top junior golfers. Mickelson was lucky enough to become a well-known PGA golfer but Scott didn’t become as successful as he hoped.

Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriends, Wife, Kids

Scott was in a long term relation with his girlfriend Laci after which they later decided to take their marriage vows. Their marriage was going on well as they were very much in love with each other. At the same time, they were financially stable as Scott had a well-paying job when his wife got pregnant with their first child.

Scott was introduced to Amber Frey who was meant to be his therapist and this is when everything started going wrong. The love-filled couple started getting weird and one day Scott reported that his wife had disappeared. After some investigations it was discovered that he had murdered his wife who was 8 months pregnant. It is suspected that he killed his wife to make it easy for him to relate with his therapist.

Professional Career

Although Scott dreamt of becoming a professional golfer, things didn’t work out so well for him. This was however not enough reason for him to give up as a person, and he therefore decided to look for other ways of survival. Since he was born and raised by businessmen, he also decided to try out his luck in business in San Diego, California.

Luckily, he became a successful fertilizer salesman as he would earn a good amount of money from the sales. By the time the incident with his wife was being reported, he was earning approximately $5,000 from his job. The incident disoriented his life and he lost his job before being sent to jail. Although he was the first to report his pregnant wife’s disappearance, it is said that he did all this as a cover up for his acts.

Initially, people had bought his story, and they really sympathized with him for losing his wife when they were about to welcome their first child. However, after deep investigations, it was discovered that he was not a victim but a culprit. He was accused of killing his wife and unborn child and received a death sentence through lethal injection.


Apart from his success as a golfer in high school and college life, and his job as a fertilizer salesman, there is nothing much to be said about Scott. This is because; his actions of killing his wife and unborn child deemed all his dreams of becoming successful in life.
