Our Story

At Plumb Line University, we have identified and discovered NEW teaching methods that are neuroplasticity-based. I know, I know, that sounds like a really big word (Thats why we use it, because it makes us sound really smart.) but in reality these teaching techniques are so simple its hard to believe no one has thought of it until now.  In the past, unless you were a personal client, you couldn't learn these techniques. Now it can be taught to the masses via Webinars or on-line lessons, and thats our mission. 

 

Plumb Line University's Step 1-3 approach for teaching proper mechanics for ALL human movement is a game changer for the Health, Wellness, Fitness and Sports industry.

Britton Brown

My Story

Britton Brown has been a competitive golfer for over 35 years. As a scratch golfer and golf instructor, he is passionate about helping others enjoy the game, play at their highest levels, and compete. His dedication to growing the game of golf is unparalleled. Britton has been coaching athletes for over a decade. He played college hockey and baseball. He was invited to try out for the Chicago Cubs as a catcher back in 1992, a highly skilled soccer player, raced all over the country as an avid Cat 2 cyclist, and played polo for many years. He is an avid outdoorsman who loves kiteboarding, horseback riding. 

Britton is presently working towards his goal to qualify for the Champions Tour and the U.S. Open. Perhaps this is what makes him so unique as an instructor. He not only teaches it, but he can also do it! Which is not a common element when it comes to golf instruction. As a specialist in both swing mechanics and body movement laws about the golf swing, Britton brings a wealth of knowledge to his clients. He has multiple degrees ranging from Paramedicine and Bible Doctrine. He teaches cardiology, pharmacology, anatomy & physiology at a local college.

“I’ve felt like we had been doing a disservice in golf instruction for years now, and the proof was overall handicaps haven’t improved for the last 80 years. It was time to take a hard look at how we instruct up-and-coming golfers.” “I am so excited to be part of Plumb Line University, working as the CEO and mentoring under Alison’s tutelage. Whether young or old, more athletes are going to find the gains they’ve been dreaming about for years. This is the secret sauce that few are born with, while others spend countless years in search of. For most, it’s has been elusive. But it is apparent that and Alison has cracked the code.”
