James Surber - PGA Golf Professional - Personal Coach
Welcome to My Website....
I have been a Class A PGA professional for 25 years now! It has been my main focus to learn as much as I could about golf instruction for all levels of players, novice through tour professionals. During this time, I traveled extensively to work and study with those who I think are some of the best teaching professionals in the world. In addition to this, I have visited tournaments like the Masters and US Open and obtained permission to set up my own video cameras at these sites to view and visit with the golf swings of the best players in the world. I am constantly reading new and classic material on teaching and understanding golf. I believe that by doing this, I expose myself to many different styles, techniques, and schools of thought from established teachers and do not limit my ideas to any one school of thought. Through many different eyes, I have developed a solid background for teaching the game. I have through these experiences acquired some definite preferences... with good reasons! After seeing many styles in action, I have sorted through the good and the not as good to bring my students the best of all the ideas! By having taught thousands of students and seen thousands of individual personal approaches to golf from my students, I have an immense and terrific data bank from which to draw upon. This translates into Effectively Helping You Achieve Your Goals! Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in private instruction or have any questions.

Hands on help with your game...and a quote to ponder
As always, the best communication is one on one time with your coach. Remember " No amount of effort can substitute for technique. Just because you want golf to be simple doesn't make it so.... Ions of man hours are wasted trying to substitute effort for technique." Feed your golf swing good information! And, as far as experience is concerned, I would choose to have my body operated on by someone who has done thousands of them and has a background I can review, than by someone who is offering that service for much less with little experience or reviewable background.
