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.

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.

I've had several lessons now with James now, apart from James being friendly and professional as you would expect, he treated me as an individual, not the one size fits all lessons that I have experienced elsewhere. James spent time analysing my stance, grip and swing before putting together a lesson plan for me. When I struggle with the changes introduced into my game, James tries a number of different methods to help me.
