Get to Know Your Coach
Performance Golf Coaching for all levels
Hi - my name is James Keitch and I am a PGA Teaching Professional based at Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club in Taunton, Somerset.
I have been a Golf Professional for nearly 10 years. At the age of 21, I became one of the youngest Fully Qualified PGA Professionals in the country.
Since passing my final PGA exams I have spent years evolving my teaching philosophy - through spending time with some of the top coaches in the UK, delivering over 1000 lessons and in constant research.

Can not rate James highly enough. I had a block of 6 lessons with him, he listened to what I wanted to achieve and has helped me hit better shots more consistently.
