Sue Shapcott, PGA GB&I PGA Teaching Professional

Sue Shapcott

Although Sue Shapcott is new to Madison, she is not new to the golf industry. Sue grew up in England and represented Great Britain & Ireland in international competition before joining the professional tours. After her playing career finished, she trained as an instructor with the British PGA and was recruited in 2000 to teach for Hank Haney in Dallas, TX. Although Sue has competed at the top level, and has instructed fellow professionals, her passion as an instructor lies with grass-roots golfers. Sue holds a Master's degree in Educational Psychology, and is currently a PhD candidate in Education. She researches the effects of golf instructors on their students' motivation (and tries to implement what she finds in Change Golf Instruction programming). When Sue is not teaching golf, you are likely to find her enjoying Madison's awesome music scene.
