I'm definitely not a natural golfer and he introduces changes to my game at a pace I can cope with. Although it's definitely work in progress with me, I feel confident James's approach and individual coaching style will get me where I want my game to be.

James has provided several lessons on various aspects of the game of golf over the past couple of years. He is enthusiastic, very understanding & brings a great deal of knowledge to these sessions. My game is gradually improving (until lockdown was forced on us) & I am looking forward to more great instruction when we are able to return.

Putting was the theme of the session. Jake clearly explained the technique and we set about the different exercises aimed at reinforcing the coaching session. During the team competition Jake gave each person constructive feed back during the morning to help improve technique enabling us to make single putts by the end of the exercises. At the end of the session Jake summarised key points of the coaching and gave us pointers on what to work on.
