Jordan Shipshock has been playing elite golf throughout her high school career. She’s shot in the low 70s, earned All-Conference four times and helped Waunakee to top-6 finishes every year at the WIAA State Tournament. Next fall, Shipshock will advance to an even greater level of competition with the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Shipshock is the seventh straight ScoutU girls golfer to commit to an NCAA Division I program. UWGB is coming off its first-ever Horizon League title last spring.
“Being able to play college golf is beyond exciting,” Shipshock said. “I’ve enjoyed my competitive level of golf in high school, but I am so excited to take it to another level and begin competing in a much stronger field. I believe playing with higher competition only brings more motivation, because if you want it, you know you have to work extremely hard, and I’m excited for all the above.”
After a strong summer that included a sixth-place finish at the prestigious Sherri Steinhauer Tournament, Shipshock took second with a 71 at the 2023 Badger Large Conference Championship. The WIAA State Tournament then came down to the wire, with Shipshock’s 80-79 helping her team secure a second-place finish.
“Jordan has a beautiful golf swing,” ScoutU’s Jon Feyen said. “Her smooth motion allows her to hit a ton of greens, which leads to great consistency. She works really hard on her game and is prepared for any challenge. It was a pleasure working with Jordan’s family, and I’m excited to see her thrive with the Phoenix!”
Shipshock had about 10 coaches call her since joining ScoutU. After receiving a handful of offers, it was Green Bay’s environment that convinced her to head about 2.5 hours northeast.
“I was comfortable committing to UWGB because the campus is very pretty and the school itself was very appealing to me because of its size,” Shipshock said. “I also think Coach (Lee) Reinke is a great person and coach. Our shared conversations over the past few months were a big help. Then being able to walk through the school during my visit and seeing all the classrooms, students and layout was a big selling point for me.”
Shipshock developed a passion for golf early in life, and she continues to learn more about the game. It’s a rare opportunity for an athlete to extend their career another 4 years, but ScoutU is proud to pave that path for them.
“Jon Feyen was great at helping Jordan get all of her stats and experiences organized in a way she could share with potential colleges,” said her dad, John Shipshock. “He also helped us understand what playing a sport in college looks like and so much more.”
