Jim believes that those ingredients are essential in achieving the best results with all of his students and says: “I love this game. I love to play and I bring that passion to my teaching because I want everyone to feel the way that I do.”

Teaching Philosophy

“I love this game. I love to play and I bring that passion to my teaching because I want everyone to feel the way that I do. ”Jim’s ready wit and calm and patient approach to his craft are indicative of the man himself. Jim believes that those ingredients are essential in achieving the best results with all of his students. As Jim explains: “Early in my golf career I worked with some of my area’s leading teachers looking for a shortcut – only to find out there were none! The only shortcut is to find a teacher who understands you as a person and the engine that makes your swing. Consequently, I believe my students should have a building block of fundamentals: grip, stance, posture and alignment. I bring my message in simple terms and with multiple visual illustrations, some conventional, some not, adapting to each student’s learning style, life experiences, body type, abilities and limitations. And to make that experience for the student enjoyable and successful.” We know that after your school with Jim, that you will be playing at a new level, and you will have had a great time doing so!

Testimonials

“I would like to thank Jim for his incredible instruction. If I had started golf with him, maybe I would be a pro by now!! Jim is an excellent teacher and the best type for me- a “feel” man. He gives the student a feel for what the correct swing is. Thanks again” Neelesh Uppal Singapore Golf School: Arizona
