Sue Shapcott, PGA (GB&I), MA

Director of Instruction
Change Golf Instruction

Sue is a former tour player with a passion for helping recreational players reach their potential. She trained with the British PGA and spent 5 years developing technical expertise with Hank Haney in Dallas, TX. Sue is also an educational psychologist and will sneak that into your lessons!

More Info

Sue Shapcott has been working in and around the golf industry for over 20 years. Sue grew up playing golf in Bristol, England. As an amateur, Sue represented Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I) women’s team. She was a member of a winning Great Britain and Ireland Curtis Cup team and also won a bronze medal for GB&I in golf’s World Cup. Sue turned professional in 1989 and played competitively on the Ladies European Tour and the Asian Tour. She trained as a coach with the British PGA. Sue’s coaching career took off in 2000 when she was recruited to coach for Hank Haney in Dallas, TX. During this time, she watched Haney teach dozens of lessons – ranging from beginner golfers to tour players. Sue said this experience opened her eyes to how effective coaches could be.

In 2005, Sue left Haney’s Golf Schools and was appointed Director of Instruction at Dallas’s busiest public facility, Tenison Park. During this period, she taught a couple of LPGA players, but her main client base was new and recreational players. Sue realized that although coaching professional players was a tribute to her experience and knowledge, she garnered more enjoyment from helping new and recreational golfers. While at Tenison Park, Sue felt she had more than sufficient technical knowledge to help her students, but wanted to understand how to better motivate them. Although she had personal experience to draw from, she looked for more of an evidence-based approach to the problem. In 2010 Sue graduated with a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology from Arizona State University – focusing on the differences in motivation of male and female recreational golfers. She is continuing her research at the University of Bath where she is undertaking a PhD in Education.

Shannon Morehouse, PGA

Teaching Professional

Shannon is a PGA golf instructor, and loves to work out. He has combined his passion for golf & fitness with his newly acquired TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) certification! If you want to reach your peak performance, Shannon is your guy.

More Info

Shannon is a retired Military Police Officer who ended his military career to pursue his passion for golf. He graduated from the Golf Professional Training Program and obtained PGA Membership in 1998. Shannon has worked with some of golf’s greatest instructors, including Hank Haney. His career has taken him to Wisconsin, Arizona and California as he followed his passion for golf instruction and game improvement. Shannon continues to attend PGA teaching summits and seminars, and is always looking for ways to improve the quality of instruction he provides to his students.

Shannon recently partnered with the Titleist Performance Institute to better understand the connection between a students’ physical attributes and their ability to improve. He does not believe in one way to swing a club, but believes there is one efficient way for every player to swing, and that is based on each player’s physical capabilities. For example, the most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer — because efficiency is unique to his or her body.

To build an efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. Screening involves an assessment of swing mechanics, biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history. Once this screen has been completed, the results are used to create a plan unique for each golfer. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above.

I welcome any questions and look forward to helping you improve your golf game.
