Dave James Bio…
General Manager: Dave James, PGA
Dave James is the Golf Course General Manager, PGA Class A-13. Dave was elected to PGA Membership in October of 2002 and has been the Golf Course Manager/Head Professional at Meadowlark Hills Golf Course since October of 1998. He moved to Kearney from Leawood, Kansas where he worked at Overland Park Golf Club. He has a wife Amy; children Olivia, David III, Ellie and dogs Ivy & Riley. He has been teaching golf since May of 1994. Dave’s philosophy on teaching to hit the ball straight is… to get the golf swing as compact as possible. Getting your swing set in the back swing is crucial. We have to make sure we can get our wrists cocked at the top of the swing so we can properly release the club at impact. The main reason for having a compact swing is to simplify the range of motion. The more moving parts to the golf swing the more errors we create. How to understand the golf swing? Students must learn the five laws to the golf swing. Two of the laws are for direction and three of the laws are for distance. The laws of the swing are face, path, club head speed, angle of approach and centeredness. Once a student understands the laws the swing will make better sense and the game should be easier to understand. One of my favorite drills is keep our feet together and pitch balls 15-30 yards with a half swing. Releasing the club properly the student will be shocked how far the ball will travel.
