James Oh is a teaching pro based out of Southern California. As a former PGA Tour player, he has a track record of developing top tour professionals and amateurs over the last two decades. His students have won PGA Tour titles to USGA National Championships and has helped over 50 students earn full scholarships to the nation’s Top Division 1 golf programs.
James first picked up a golf club at the age of 5, and by age 11 he had won his first golf tournament. At age 14, James became the youngest golfer to qualify for the United States Amateur, breaking the record set by Bobby Jones in 1916. He went on to win the 1998 United States Junior Amateur. Oh played college golf at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for one year before turning professional in 2001. At age 21, James became the youngest player to ever win on the Nationwide tour with his victory at the Mark Christopher Charity Classic.
"Some teaching pros tend to go into robot mode, offering the same song-n-dance to everyone. James knows how to customize instruction. If you make the choice to dedicate your life to your dreams, James is the catalyst who helps you get there."
"James can do anything he requires his student to do; he can show them directly! It’s not just a theory. He can show a student what’s right and what’s wrong right in front of them with the golf ball."
"Many coaches nowadays only focus on the golf swing—social media has romanticized it. James focuses on making sure the ball is doing what you envision, not only on full shots, but on and around the green as well. He puts together a very specific practice routine that leaves me with a sense of optimism and fulfillment each time I do it."
"My confidence has grown and I learn more and more about my swing every year. James and I have developed practice plans for when I am home and when I am on the road playing tournaments. He taught me how to believe in this plan."
James reveals what truly improves your game. What separates him from the run-of-the-mill golf instructor is his insight from years of professional golf. I’ve had many different coaches before meeting James. He teaches the little nuances about the game that you can’t find from books, articles, or videos. I recommend him if you’re seriously looking to play at a higher level.
