I am happy to host and present at the 4th annual “Guru’s Teaching and Coaching Workshop” at Carmel CC. This years event will be on Monday, March 23rd and the entry fee will be $225.00. DSC_0213

My goal has always been to provide you with the best and most current information from the top coaches in the country at an affordable price. I started this workshop 4 years ago when I presented all by myself and every year I have added some of the best instructors in the business to share their ideas and what makes them successful. This will be an outstanding day of learning and networking that I hope you can take advantage of. DSC_0340As you know if you attended last year, we don’t stop when the seminar is over……The after pre-game and after party allows you to get up close and meet the presenters and all of the top coaches that attend. This is a great way to meet new people in the industry, ask questions and build your learning base to get the year started out right. So without further delay……Here is our lineup of presenters for #guruworkshop15

  • Co-Founder with John Graham of Short Game Secrets golf schools and DVD Series
  • Specializes in short game and wedge play with cutting edge research to back it up
  • James has been fortunate enough to meet many inspiring individuals who have shaped his skills to the point we find today, the quest for personal development is ongoing however and will continue indefinitely. With past and current clients from the European Tour, Ladies European Tour, LPGA and experience on the PGA Tour James has a proven ability at the highest level to instil positive change in his players.James’ journey began as an Assistant Professional at The Bedfordshire Golf Club in 2000, an aspiring player he continued to compete throughout his PGA training period gaining qualification in 2004. A move to Orlando soon followed in order to hone his game and compete as much as possible. It was during this time that the urge to research the golf swing and the teaching of it really grew through his own struggles with form vs function.On his return to the UK he knew playing at the highest level was beyond him and started to dig for answers. This process took in many different countries, coaches and teaching philosophies. It’s fair to say that the most influential people James has met with regards to teaching the golf swing are Mike Bennett & Andy Plummer, not only for what they teach but the way the golf swing is looked at. This structure is what allowed James to pursue his research into the short game and put this research into a simple, understandable format.While continuing to research and develop himself and his ideas James takes great pride in providing the highest level of full swing and short game coaching available, something you can be sure of is that no stone will be left unturned in helping you achieve your potential.
