About James

My personal bio is less about me and more about my philosophy of how I help a student to improve their golf game. My philosophy about every student that I help along in their golfing pilgrimage is the same. "Every one is an individual and with different skills and physical bodies and will be treated in that manner". I think more along the lines of “personal skill levels” what they are personally able to do vs what they are suppose to do according to established golf criteria.

On a personal level I am a Certified Teaching Professional in the PGA of America, I am also ADM certified coach, but probably the first thing that you will notice about me is that I am 6 foot 7 inches tall. I have been playing this wonderful game for over half a century and have been training students for over thirty years. In my younger days I played on several mini tour like the Space Coast Tour and the Carolina Tour to name a couple. I understand the mechanics of the golf swing and how those mechanics relate to the body movement that is needed to produce a reliable and consistent golf swing.

I have been taking lessons with Jim. The combination of the hitting bays, RoboGolf equipment and practice/range time has resulted in a dramatically improved golf game.

The best short game lesson that I ever experienced. Jim gave me a different look in to the short game area that has been missing form my game for years.

Al Swanson


He worked with my body limitations by making my swing fit my body and not some tour pro twenty five years younger then me.

More than 10 years away from golf, I use my time in Las Vegas to get back into the game. Going to do this with RoboGolf and PGA professional James Saunders was the best. Thanks, Jim for the helpful tips to fundamentally improve my swing.
