Chris McMaster

Assistant Professional - PGA Professional

Chris joined the team in 2017 and provided a new dynamic. A very friendly chatty guy who will help people with anything from booking a tee time to improving your golf game.

Extract from PGA website - accessed 25th April 2019

"Christopher McMaster tamed Mother Nature and the challenging course at Ladybank Golf Club in Fife to qualify for the final of the PGA’s flagship competition, the Titleist and FootJoy PGA Professional Championship.

McMaster, who is attached to Downfield Golf Club, Dundee, posted a four-under-par round of 67 to win the PGA in Scotland regional qualifier and claim the £500 first prize.

In doing so, he finished three shots ahead of Craig Lee, the only other player in the 45-strong field to break par"

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."

Contact the Pro-Shop to discuss/arrange the lesson that could take your game to the next level.
