About Us

Why NYSSGOLF (nicegolf)? Why NYSSfit or PuttGenie? Dean Nysschen is originally a farmer from Zimbabwe. He left Zimbabwe in early 2000 to pursue a golf career in South Africa. After obtaining his playing privileges at the South African Sunshine Tour Qualifying School, Dean has enjoyed many years playing on the South African SunshineTour and has met many amazing people.

In 2007 he started his teaching career at Bryanston Country Club in South Africa. Through his experience and life lessons playing the Tour, Dean learnt very quickly how important the short game was and developed a small obsession of how to become the best in the world around the greens. In 2009 Dean enlisted in the South African PGA, and graduated as a fully qualified teaching professional.

With his vast knowledge and experience around the greens, Dean now works with some of the top South African professionals and amateurs. Through this he has developed the NYSSfit and PuttGenie to help others improve their short-game and will continue his quest to develop the best "scoring game" in the world.
