James Robinson is a professional from Lancashire, England, based at Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club

This year James has been competing on the European Challenge Tour along with some events on The Europro Tour, The European Tour, and Qualifying events for The Open Championship.

James said: “I started playing golf at 12 years old, introduced to the game by my dad at Gathurst Golf Club in Lancashire, and I instantly had a keen interest in the game.

“Over the following years my golf progressed, with the help of professional coaching from 14 years of age I was able to win many tournaments at regional, national, and international level, establishing myself as one of the leading England amateur players by the age of 20.

“Playing off a handicap of +4.5 I was keen to turn professional, and I did so shortly after winning a PGA Europro Tour event at Slaley Hall in 2010.

So far as a professional I have won 6 tournaments and in 2013 I was only 1 shot away from gaining a European Tour Category from Qualifying School.

Southport PGA Professional golfer Joel Rodwell quoted: “This is great news, I have worked with James in the past and he is one of the most naturally gifted golfers. James has been plugging away at the professional game for a fews years and now he has been rewarded for all the hard work”
