Angus Cappi

Assistant Professional

Joined the Downfield Pro-Shop team in April 2018.

Career Highlights- Winning the Scottish youths in 2009

Approachable and friendly. Angus enjoys learning and helping others to reach their goals in the game of golf.

Teaching Philosophy- "Sound Fundamentals are crucial for the building blocks of any golf swing. Every golfer is unique. Not one swing is the same. I believe working with the person, giving honest and specific feedback is essential for them not only to improve but so they have a better understanding of their golf swing as well."
