James HullTeaching Professional
James first picked up a club at the age of 7 and by 8 was hooked. Within another year he was a member of his local club and playing for his county from 12 through to 18 when he went off to university. He was a member of the Southampton University team that made the national semi-finals in 1997.
James worked in finance for a few years before deciding to train as a British PGA golf coach. As an assistant, he trained under some of the best coaches in the UK at Worplesdon Golf Club, learning from differing styles and approaches to coaching. From here he moved to Mount Pleasant Golf Club and was soon appointed as Head Professional after completing the PGA qualification where he remained until moving to Australia.
James’ focus is on coaching, whether with the juniors, ladies or men, and enjoys the diversity of challenges that each pupil brings to him.
His coaching ethos is to be honest, realistic and keeping it simple. He tries to ensure that each player goes away from each lesson understanding what they need to do to improve, as well as why. With a greater understanding of his clients, he aims to make sure that all players enjoy the game of golf as much as possible. He is also a qualified club-fitter and believes that having the correct equipment is essential to making the most of your game.
