About James

I am a graduate of Fayetteville State University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology. I grew up learning and playing golf while working at the famed Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, N.C. My love of golf instruction began as a golf coach with the First Tee of America. I have continued my passion for golf instruction by helping to develop a number of high school and collegiate golfers. I also specialize in introductory small and large group clinics that focus on the development of junior and women golfers.

My philosophy as an instructor is seeded in the commitment to grow the game of golf through diversity and inclusion. Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy this great game no matter your gender, age or background.
