It is a very difficult decision to choose which golf Instructor you will entrust to develop your junior’s golf skills!  Juniors as well as parents all have different reasons why they enjoy the game of golf.  Everyone has different goals when playing the game.  It can be as simple as having fun, exercising, or for companionship.  Other reasons can be for the competition and personal challenge of being the best golfer you can be. Maybe taking your golf game to another level in high school, college, or even professionally.  Surely for most, golf is a combination of some of these thoughts!

You can feel confident that your Junior Golfer will receive the expert knowledge that Jim has achieved over a lifetime of playing golf, studying golf, and teaching golf all while they are having fun!  Jim's goal is to make his instruction simple while applying the technical expertise and knowledge that he has acquired.

Jim's golf teaching philosophy is to teach the fundamentals of the game.  Grip, address, posture, these start the foundation to a great golf swing.  Working with the uniqueness of every person’s body will then determine which way will be the best for each individual to swing a golf club. 

Juniors will learn how to be confident in their ball striking, short game, bunker play, putting, course management, and pre-shot routine.  They will be encouraged to choose a positive attitude and to develop a champion’s mentality.

Jim offers a unique combination of experience that not many instructors have. He has over 30 years of teaching experience, and has played golf at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels.  While reaching these levels Jim has won junior and amateur golf tournaments, and has also won over 60 professional golf tournaments worldwide.  Understanding what it takes to be a champion golfer gives Jim that advantage to be the very best teacher. 

Additionally, Jim has over 20 years of  golf club fitting experience. His extensive knowledge of golf shafts and golf ball technology gives Jim another advantage while teaching his students. Applying a blend of this club fitting experience with Jim's teaching gives the student the best of both worlds. 

Jim believes it is a thrill and a privilege to teach and coach junior golfers!  No matter what level they are it is exciting to view and encourage their progress and growth.  After all they are the future of our great game!
