Scott Stallings is a card-carrying PGA Tour player with three victories to his name. It would’ve been easy, in his situation, to kick back and relax. But he wanted to be an even better version of himself. He hit the gym, and so Scott Stallings’ weight-loss journey began.
Almost a year later, Stallings is 50 lbs. lighter and in the best physical shape of his career.

Earlier this week, Stallings sat down with PGA Tour Entertainment and revealed more about his transformation. It started as a simple mission to improve his life and golf game. He started going to CrossFit, but there was one phrase that kept motivating him to keep pushing, as he explains in the video below:
“We gotta pay the man today. At first I didn’t know what that meant…I was ‘I don’t know what that means.” And he said, ‘You’ve got two things you can control: Your attitude and your effort, and the rent is due on both every day, so pay the man.”
Hope everyone enjoyed my Inside The @PGATOUR episode on @GolfChannel today featuring my transformation on and off the golf course, overcoming medical issues & my passion for fitness. If you missed it today, it’ll re-air tmmro (4/3) at 2AM 5AM and 7:30PM Eastern Time! @PGATOUREnt pic.twitter.com/olmw3M9ZyG

Stallings loved the phrase so much that it’s become his daily mantra. He’s even got the phrase stamped on his wedges.
So, let’s all learn from Stallings. If a PGA Tour pro can motivate himself to lose 50 lbs., surely we can aspire to improve in all our own ways. And remember the key to it all: Pay the man!
As we enter review and testing season it’s really easy to lose sight of the fun in learning and why we need to continue to work hard… today @stallingsgolf you provided a little lesson! #wordswednesday #rolemodel pic.twitter.com/tVKgvQmQB4
