About Missie Berteotti
14-year Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) veteran Missie Berteotti achieved great things as a collegiate and professional golfer, and now speaks across the country to leaders in corporations and associations about communicating effectively on and off of the golf course. Today, Missie coaches women from all over the United States to handle communication opportunities when dealing with clients. At the underlying core of all of her coaching is the focus on the fundamental principles of her Mental Mastery Program™ which she has written about in her book The Mental Mastery Program – From the Classroom to the Course to Life. During her 14 years on the LPGA tour, Missie earned over 1 million dollars, won the Ping Welch’s Classic in 1993 and placed in the top 10 on numerous occasions. Her career-best round of 65 came in the third round of the 1991 Women’s Kemper Open in Hawaii.
Since leaving the tour to focus more on raising her son Sam and to coach other children, Missie again focused on juniors and women; hosting weekly women’s golf clinics and presenting The Mental Mastery Workshops to aspiring, junior, golfers on how to be the best competitor that they can be- physically and also mentally and emotionally! To miss all of that is too important and that is her passion that she studies and practices in her own life.
Missie works as a teaching professional at Scally’s Golf Center in Pittsburgh, Pa. As a golf instructor, she continues to improve her skills and is a member of Toastmasters International and National Speakers Association. Missie has studied yoga and been an Iyengar Yoga instructor, worked at nationally known golf schools, received her National Certification in Therapeutic Massage, received her certification as a Titleist Performance Institute Golf Fitness Instructor and was certified by Rick Jensen to coach Mental Skills and is one of the few nationally Certified Golf Coaches.
Missie, who is a graduate of Upper St. Clair High School in Pittsburgh, won back-to-back Pennsylvania State Championships from 1980-81. Missie then attended the University of Miami, where she had a successful collegiate career, highlighted by medalist honors at the 1984 NCAA Championship.
