Luckily for the game of golf there are people like Sue Thomson. She’s one of the army of unsung heroes upon whom the game relies around the world.
These are the people who volunteer their time and energy but – most importantly, their passion – to giving the gift of golf to the next generation.
Sue is the junior coordinator at Perth’s Mt Lawley Golf Club, but the title hardly conveys the impact she makes.
We first heard of Sue through Australia’s most recent major winner, Hannah Green. Long before she holed that extraordinary putt on the 18th green at Hazeltine, Green told The Thing About Golf host Rod Morri … “if it wasn’t for Sue Thompson, I wouldn’t even play golf.”
That is an extraordinary impact to have had on the life of another person, and it immediately made Morri want to meet this woman. And so he did … now you can too.
