Having worked with with James over the past two years, . I have been impressed with his coaching methods and approach interacting with Trackman and manual teaching aids. Using these various methods has helped me understand my faults and using corrective drills has improved my consistency, staying on the fairway and therefore lowering my handicap. I can recommend the on course coaching sessions, James gives feed back not only on adjustments need on technique but also insight into course management.

My game has changed immensely since having lessons with James. His understanding approach has given me the confidence in my game that I have greatly lacked. He explains everything in a language that I can relate to without blinding me with science of movement. He respects the fact that everyone is not the same and adapts to everyone’s individual needs and abilities. He has a range of teaching aids, many made by himself, that enhance and reinforce his lessons.

I have recently started lessons with Mark Collins at Littlestone and can’t wait for the lockdown to end as he is a brilliant coach and despite my age I have learnt a great deal. I have recommended the professional team to all my friends both members at the club and friends who play elsewhere as the standard of teaching and facilities are first rate.

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.
