A native of Houston, Jim Phenicie has become one of the most sought after teachers in South Texas. Throughout his life, Jim was mentored by some of the best instructors in the country. Names like Hank Haney, Jim Flick, Chuck Cook, Jerry Smith and Dan Snider are just a few of the teachers that shaped Jim's ideas today. Not long after graduating from Sam Houston State University with a BBA, Jim landed the Director of Instruction position at Kingwood Country Clubs Golf Advantage School where he directed the programs for 11 years. He also spent time in the dual role as Head Professional for the Forest Course (host to the movie Tin Cup) and as Director of the School. In early 2003, Wind Rose performed a nationwide search of candidates to lead their Player Development Program and create an instruction environment for tutoring individual students. With credentials like Jim's, the choice was easy. Jim's awards have matched his reputation over the years as he is a three-time Southern Texas PGA Teacher of the Year and is a current nominee for GOLF Magazine's Top 100 Teachers in America. Jim has been selected to the Golf Digest Best Teachers in State list since 2003 and is a GOLF Magazine Best Regional Instructor selection in the Southern US. Jim also holds several professional clubfitting certifications and hosts one of only 32 Titleist Advanced Fitting Centers. Jim has been selected to the Titleist Leadership Advisory Staff and the Prominent Fitter Team where he trains other PGA Professionals the art of custom fitting golf clubs. He has also served as a featured columnist for several monthly publications, as well as a frequent guest speaker on area radio and television programs. He is identified as a Top Instructor in the Houston area in both the BMW and Shell Golf Guides. Jim has also conducted seminars on teaching techniques for the advancement of PGA Professionals and has been on both the Southern Texas PGA Education Committee and Houston Golf Association Career Panel
