About James

Thank you for looking into my profile.

As a PGA professional I'm here to help you improve in all aspects of your game. I don't believe in teaching each student one specific swing. Rather I work within the swing of the student and their physical capabilities to help them achieve their goals.

There is a strong importance on learning the proper basics and fundamental swing techniques. However, learning to manage your game and enjoying the game are just as important.

I teach all levels of golfers. From those just beginning the game to the low handicapper. Making the student feel at ease is important and we tailor our lesson to the best learning style of the student.

Elected to PGA Membership in 2014. Head Golf Professional at West Bend Country Club. Former Head Golf Professional at River Club of Mequon. Worked within the WI PGA section for the past 18 years.
