Summary

Born and raised in Yorkshire England, James found a passion for golf at an early age.

A keen footballer James started taking along a few old clubs and golf balls to the local football fields until he joined the local golf club as a junior member.

James spent hours practicing in rain, hail or shine, at his local golf club. This passion reaped rewards with some prestigious amateur wins under his belt prior to turning professional at the age of 20.

During his professional career James played on the Sunshine Tour, Challenge Tour and Euro Pro Tours respectively. Exposure to all areas of the game, James took advice and lessons from some of the best coaches in Europe who have all influenced him in different ways.

Experiencing different coaching techniques throughout his career and watching fellow players continually work on different areas of their game, sparked an interest in how to better advance his own game and the game of others.

This lead to his progression as a full time golf coach. Upon taking this path, James has been on a mission to simplify the ever complicated golf swing.

The most natural step to this was to advance his knowledge of club and ball flight data and TrackMan was the answer. TrackMan has been a catalyst to learn, explore and educate further in all aspects of the game.

Dedicated to being at the forefront of the golf's evolution, James believes the use of innovative and factual based equipment during lessons is crucial for the coach and student.

James has coached golf in four different countries including England, Australia, Thailand and Singapore over the last 9 years. James, a Titleist brand ambassador, has been coaching at the prestigious The Singapore Island Country Club since 2012.
