James Bowen

PGA Associate

James joined the team at Latrobe in 2022 and is currently undertaking his Membership Pathway Program via the PGA of Australia.

He enjoys working closely with golfers of all abilities to teach them an understanding of their golf swing and how to self-correct as they play and progress in their golfing journeys.

James believes in teaching the player the fundamentals, ball flight laws and swing mechanics that lead to a player understanding a repetitive swing that works for them.

During a game of golf, a practice session or a lesson, James believes you should be learning both an understand about the game and an understand about yourself.

Learning how you react in situations will help you deliver a great swing more often.

James is available for Individual lessons, Small group lessons and Playing lessons.
