About James

Edit sub-title

Hi, I’m James Whittemore

Hi, my name is James Whittemore and I am a Class AA PGA teaching professional, based at Wellingborough Golf Club since 2011. My philosophy is to create performance plans that are bespoke to you. 

I have a real passion for coaching and providing a professional service of the highest quality. I am a Class AA Professional graduating as a fully qualified PGA pro in 2011, where I have since developed an established and growing reputation as a coach.

I strive to keep up to date with modern day teaching methods and techniques and put my own mark on them. I always find that a simplistic approach to coaching works the best. For me, information overload is the worst thing I can do to a pupil, and so the sense of ‘less is more’ is key when I’m delivering sessions. 

I welcome, and have worked with, golfers with varying ability and experience, from the +2 handicap to the total beginner.

Where will lessons take place?

Sessions will take place at Wellingborough Golf Club at either The Slips practice ground, our indoor studio, or playing lessons and ground sessions on the course. You do not need to be a WGC member to sign up for my performance plans.

For outdoor coaching at the slips, I have a HD camera system which highlights the qualities and flaws of your swing. Combined with my expertise it is a perfect combination to get the most out of your game.

At the indoor performance studio we use GC2 Simulator software & C Swing systems for video analysis, with a two camera system for capturing ‘down the line’ & ‘side on.’ The GC2 gives you on-ball data the indoor studio as a whole is a fantastic facility giving me the best of both worlds with the two coaching facilities in place.
